B.A., B.Ed., M.Sc., CE

When Rochelle discovered evaluation in 1994, she was immediately intrigued. Since then, she has been involved in over 100 applied research and evaluation projects … and isn’t bored yet!

As an experienced project manager, Rochelle is recognized for her ability to balance rigour with practicality, and her dedication to making a difference for her clients. She is also a skilled analyst, whether working with qualitative or quantitative data, and has a knack for synthesizing findings from multiple sources of evidence.

Contributions to Evaluation

Rochelle gained international recognition as a result of her lead role with the Canadian Evaluation Society’s (CES) efforts to develop a Core Body of Knowledge (PDF) for evaluation.

She has also promoted research into the value of evaluation, believing that evaluators must “walk the talk” by measuring and assessing the impact of their own efforts.

As a regular presenter at CES conferences, she has delivered workshops about the value of evaluation, evaluating complex initiatives, doing evaluations that involve vulnerable populations, and utilization-focused writing.
