8RES is a minority-owned women’s business and boutique consulting firm based in New York City and Toronto. We have over 20 years of Research, Evaluation, and Strategy experience working with organizations across the country on issues related to education, health and well-being, social equity, and broader policies that influence complex social, cultural, and economic systems.
We have supported evaluation in multiple sectors and roles; working internally and externally to lead the strategic design, implementation, and evaluation of large and small systems and programs. Although we are experts in evaluation approaches, instrument development, and ongoing monitoring, we recognize that organizations and the people they work with are experts of their lives, work, and contexts. We therefore approach every project in collaborative ways that enhance the utilization of the findings with the input of clients and their stakeholders to generate greater learning, improvement, and long-term sustainability.
I support First Nations, Government Agencies, Non-Profits, Consulting Firms, Individual Consultants, and University Faculty with their initiatives for community research, and program and policy planning, implementation, and evaluation. I have more than 15 years of in-depth experience on topics ranging from A to Z (from Art Programs to Zoonotic Disease Programs) and everything in between! I have a rigorous, yet well-rounded approach and deliver targeted info.

Planning & Innovation
We bring people and ideas together to share perspectives, generate solutions, and transform them into sustainable programs and collaborative initiatives that make change happen.
Through participatory approaches and qualitative and quantitative research methods we will gather and synthesize the evidence needed to inform planning and policy decisions, assess program efficiency and evaluate impact.
We build the human capacity of organizations to undertake effective evidenced-based population health program and policy planning and evaluation, through workshop and training program development and facilitation.
