Carolyn is an evaluation and research consultant out of Vancouver, BC.
My passion is designing flexible research solutions to make evaluation accessible for everyone. I have more than eight years of training and experience in applied research methods and have spent the last five working on evaluation projects with a number of government and community agencies. I previously worked as a research officer at the University of Saskatchewan in the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science and Justice Studies and relocated to Vancouver in 2015 to work as a full-time consultant.
Though I got my start in the area of criminal justice and corrections, I have also pursued projects in health, mental health and addictions, youth engagement and community development. I work with agencies to evaluate and improve their services and I continue to seek out new and challenging projects in a variety of sectors using participatory and capacity-building methods.
An active member of the Canadian Evaluation Society, I am currently pursuing my Credentialed Evaluator designation. I am proud to be part of a thriving professional community geared toward fostering and supporting social change. As a queer and gender-variant person with an interest in social justice, I am invested in bringing the benefits of evaluation to the people and organizations who need it most.
