Jennifer provides social science based research and evaluation services – so it’s about PEOPLE!
Her formal training in the design and conduct of research, and more recently evaluation, coupled with substantial accumulated experience will provide you with a tailored and quality product.
This can be an end-to-end service where she helps you to scope and develop the project, conducts the project and then does a presentation from the final report. Alternately it can be just one aspect of a project, or it could be up-skilling your staff to conduct project components.
- Project development, design and management
- Measurement, analysis and reporting
- Stakeholder engagement; ethics

With having worked in university research centres, as a consultant, in research and evaluation in the State public service, and as a social worker, she can easily walk in your shoes, understand your perspective and that of who you wish to engage with.
