Now more than ever before, we have the means to measure many, many things. The problem is how to make sense of all that information; how to cut through the noise to what’s really important. Fortunately, that’s exactly the kind of challenge I love.
Using systems analysis, I work with key stakeholders to identify the metrics necessary to understand a given problem, then to build the tools needed to parse, track, and display the data needed for informed decision-making. I’ve worked with national retailers to develop strategy, with governments to develop policy and track implementation, and with nonprofits to assess program participation and impact.
My most recent project has been VT Dinners (L3C), a healthy locally-sourced frozen meals business I launched last fall to address three of the systemic barriers to eating locally: cost, limited seasonal availability, and lack of time/knowledge to prepare nightly meals from scratch.
I handed off VT Dinners to a local partner following my family’s recent move and I’m currently on the lookout for my next project. If you have a way we might work together, whether freelance, gigging, or a full-time venture, let’s talk!
