Annie specializes in analyzing and synthesizing data – both qualitative and quantitative – to drive change. Prior to her time with Capital Sisters, Annie generated data-driven stories for stakeholders at the Alzheimer’s Association, which were used to improve outreach to Colorado’s underserved aging populations. She has conducted research in Ghana to amplify the voices of local women who knew micro credit groups were an important component of the fight against child trafficking. She also received funding from Rotary International for a project, Turning the Page on Health, which aimed to empower Peruvian communities and improve health and literacy outcomes in children. Annie conducted her thesis research on the post-conflict landscape in Northern Ireland, which focused on the role of grassroots community organizations in reintegrating one of Europe’s most divided cities.
