Cheryl is a policy analyst with a passion for safeguarding the rights of people with disabilities to lead full, self-directed lives in inclusive communities. She is particularly skilled at supporting the efforts of public agency staff to conduct consistent data collection across participating National Core Indicators states—all to make certain that states have reliable, high-quality data for informed decision-making and to direct their quality improvement efforts. Each year, working with self-advocates and families, Cheryl also presents NCI findings in plain language reports for diverse audiences. She is also highly skilled at managing project budgets, designing surveys, training interviewers, and conducting program evaluation. In addition to supporting clients in her project specific role, Cheryl also has deep experience coordinating the efforts of her team.
Cheryl has volunteered for many youth sports programs and currently volunteers at an equine therapy farm that works with children and adults with disabilities.
When not at work, Cheryl enjoys home improvement projects and attending her children’s sporting events (aka freezing in hockey rinks!).
