My skills can be used for any worthy cause, but I have particular experience in the following areas.
Development and the SDGs
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 the development of men, women and children around the world.
My experience in the Development field includes working with LogFrames, stakeholder analyses, and monitoring and evaluation. I have worked with vocational training programs, health experts and a recycling program in developing countries.
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.
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
