Natalie serves as an equity consultant, coach, evaluator, facilitator, and researcher. She provides services to the North East, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, Mountain Plains, and West regions through online, in-person, and hybrid formats.
She has worked with governing bodies of an organization, individuals in a formal leadership role, individuals who oversee operations of teams, staff/key personnel or volunteers within an organization, and community members. She has served and partnered with various populations, including Middle Eastern or North African, White/Caucasian, Black/African American, immigrants, and Appalachians.
Natalie has facilitated evaluation capacity building (ECB) workshops since 2009 and has been infusing an equity lens in that work ever since. She developed a social justice-oriented approach to ECB—transformative ECB, which promotes understanding and appreciation for data and evaluation as well as a lens that centers cultural humility, compassion, and a concern for human dignity. In addition to teaching equity-focused evaluation, she has delivered diversity, equity, and inclusion-related presentations at the annual American Evaluation Association conference. Natalie has co-authored publications, such as “Centering cultural responsiveness in the evaluation of community-based education.”
Natalie is a Public Health professor and transformative evaluator specializing in equity-focused evaluation. Through her dissertation, she developed a social justice-oriented approach to evaluation capacity building that includes principles of equity and social determinants.
