My skills can be used for any worthy cause, but I have particular experience in the following areas.
Health care / health insurance
My work on health policy issues includes: Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Managed Care Organizations (MCOs); quality measurement for providers and plans; skilled nursing facilities (SNFs); interRAI MDS assessment data; analysis of medical claims data (e.g., DRGs and ICD-10 codes) using SAS.
The UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are targets for how we, on a planetary basis, need to restructure our economies, production, transportation, use of natural resources, and development of men, women and children around the world.
Having worked for both non-profit organizations (NPOs/NGOs) and state government, I understand the needs of clients receiving social supports. Someone can't maintain a job if they don't have affordable childcare or a car (particularly if they live in a rural area). Substance abuse or mental health issues can hinder someone's ability to manage a chronic or acute disease.

"...she mastered the intricacies of [the state client database] and was one of the few experts able to do such analyses. I was particularly impressed [once] when I asked for help with a query I needed quickly. After she completed the task, she immediately wanted to do it a second way to double check the accuracy of her approach." --former Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance Program Director
My experience goes back to my days as a teacher, when I created a 2-month unit on the enviornment; I taught my students about deforestation, water and air pollution, agribusiness and biodiversity. More recently, I volunteered at Silberweide, a nature center at Greifensee.
