Josie is passionate about helping human services organizations use data to ensure that the work they are doing is truly making a difference in people’s lives. Her excitement about data in social services started when she was a public health Peace Corps Volunteer in Kenya. She helped rural community health workers record their activities to report out to US based funders and used this data to ultimately receive a large grant to support orphan caregivers in their communities.
Since then she has worked as a mental health case manager, a QA program manager and has had several roles in product and professional services at nonprofit software companies. She holds a BA in Psychology and a Masters in Social Work and Public Policy from Ohio State University.
Josie lives in Cleveland, Ohio with her husband, 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son. In her free time she enjoys spending time with family, hiking, cooking, and traveling
