Our Team

An organization is only as strong as its people and the world-class talent of our staff members has been Edvantia’s strength for more than four decades. For more than 45 years, Edvantia has partnered with clients to provide usable, affordable, customer-focused evaluation services to fit our clients’ needs. Our evaluation services are grounded in research and best practices. Our processes have been honed over the years to create a unique blend of keen insight and hands-on experiences for our clients that allows Edvantia to offer a depth of understanding and sensitivity about local and regional issues that is unmatched in the industry. That is why teachers, principals, superintendents, and university administrators consistently turn to Edvantia for cutting-edge solutions.

We are the proven experts in program evaluation and school improvement. With hundreds of years of combined experience in education and research, our team is composed of social scientists, former teachers, administrators, program directors, and state education agency leaders. We have professionals who shed light on where problems are and how they can be improved, enable state education agencies to build capacity and better serve their schools, and help individual schools and districts meet challenging federal requirements.
