Goodbye, Reashelle

We are sad to say that Reashelle is moving west! Reashelle has been wooed to Edmonton where she will be working as a Program Evaluation Coordinator for the Government of Alberta.

Reashelle has been with us only a short time (just over one year!), and our small office won’t be the same without her. Her keen eye on data, love of learning, and uncanny ability to sense when we need milk for coffee will be sorely missed. Reashelle, it’s been a pleasure working with you and we wish you every success. Best wishes and stay in touch!
