(Wishfully embracing the warmer weather, despite a pile of snow that refuses to melt in my backyard) As Spring begins, we thought it’d be appropriate to share some of our internal growths, as the world around us also grows!
The team is growing!
In October 2020, we welcomed our first team member outside of Brad. Meghan Adams, MPH, joined in a part-time capacity to support a few ongoing projects as well as resource development! She is a passionate advocate for equity and currently works full-time as a Lead Evaluation Specialist for a recovery center in the Twin Cities.
In February 2021, we welcomed our second team member, Nathan Browning! Nathan runs a consulting firm, Kiaer Research, in Kalamazoo focused on evaluation and applied research. He brings a depth of knowledge in methodology and has supported a large survey and focus group project KC is implementing.
Finally, the Krueger family is also growing! Brad and his partner Elise are expecting their first little one in April! If you’ve been on any calls with Brad, you’ll know his office is quickly becoming a nursery and his workspace is ever-shrinking!
|Our offerings are growing!|
We have been hard at work listening, learning, and developing. Over the past year, Brad has met with and heard from dozens of non-profit organizations and leaders. He has been working to understand how evaluation, data, and facilitation can best support the work of non-profits. The nuances of equity, funding, evaluation requirements and grant writing are just a few of the topics KC is exploring. KC believes evaluation should and can be more than an activity to meet funding requirements. We are working diligently to understand how to best leverage the evaluation toolbox to come alongside and build a better tomorrow with our project partners.
|Our vision is growing!|
A bit over a year after our beginning, KC is still is as young and hungry for change as on day one. But, the learnings from this year have helped illuminate the possibilities of leveraging authenticity and skill sets to their fullest potential. In alignment with our offerings and growth as a team, the vision of KC is moving far beyond Brad. As we continue to dream big, our vision of healthier, happier, and more equitable communities is driven by a desire to use “skills and expertise to challenge, rather than join, the status quo”.
