Puzzle solver and analytical storyteller

“Numbers have an important story to tell. They rely on you to give them a clear and convincing voice.”―Stephen Few

Rose has combined her deep understanding of data management and analysis with her passion for spurring learning and conversation to help a range of organizations—including those involved in arts programming, museums, food security, and emergency and disaster management.

Using her analysis skills, commitment to the social sector, and strong design principles, Rose produces tools and findings to help nonprofits, foundations, and companies tell their social impact story. Her greatest professional satisfaction comes from turning a seemingly inscrutable dataset into usable findings.

At TCC Group:
  • Target Corporation: Drawing on her extensive experience creating high-quality tools that organizations can use to learn and improve their operations, Rose worked with a team to conduct extensive best practice research on some of Target’s key focus areas, including literacy education, food security, and arts programming. Based on this research, she created an evaluation dashboard and scorecards that provided thorough, yet concise, snapshots of each of Target’s charitable giving portfolios. Target was able to use the findings from these real-time, dynamic scorecards to develop a greater understanding of their role and the roles of their individual nonprofit grantees in achieving impact.
  • West Harlem Development Corporation: Rose updated and simplified the data collection tools for the West Harlem Development Corporation (WHDC), enabling the funder to more easily analyze and learn from their grantee-provided data. Her usable data-collection solutions have given West Harlem Development Corporation a clearer picture of the work they do in the education sphere in the West Harlem neighborhood. In particular, they have a better understanding of program participants’ test scores and grades and their subsequent improvement after participating in WHDC-supported programming.
  • Johnson & Johnson Healthy Futures Initiative: Rose worked to build the evaluation capacity of five Johnson & Johnson grantee organizations as part of the Healthy Futures Initiative. Rose developed customized logic models for these groups, including a logic model for Women Deliver, an advocacy organization supporting the health, rights, and wellbeing of women and girls. She facilitated meetings with the staff of Women Deliver’s Youth Programming focus area, prompting staff to make prioritization decisions about specific, trackable success measures. Rose also provided informed and easily implementable suggestions on data collection solutions.
Before TCC Group:
  • New England Research Institutes: Rose created the structure and logic for electronic data collection forms for various medical and sociological studies with thousands of participants. She conscientiously cleaned and managed medical and sociological datasets, ensuring that the information from these studies would be user-friendly. Rose also laid out guidelines for reliable data entry and shared these guidelines with others, training external stakeholders—such as nurses conducting patient data entry—on how to gather usable data.
  • University of Houston Center for Public Policy: Analyzing large datasets and reporting out on high-level findings, Rose supported policymakers in the Texas Legislature in making important legislative decisions. Specifically, Rose used her strong understanding of typical challenges associated with large-scale survey implementation when analyzing a statewide survey on the Texas Lottery. Through her work, she and her team were able to provide state legislators with information on demographic trends in lottery participation to better understand its social effect.
