Lee-Anne excels in supporting clients to bring disciplined thinking to their organisational challenges, and has a wide reputation for her highly engaging and interactive approach to training.
Lee-Anne works with all levels of government, as well as with non-government and industry organisations, to plan for and implement M&E at the organisation, strategy, program and project levels. As Principal Consultant, her role is increasingly as a ‘trusted adviser’ to our clients, supporting their own effective program design and M&E planning, through mentoring, action-learning, and in-situ training or facilitated workshops.
It is the privilege of improving program effectiveness, and making a positive difference to client M&E practices that Lee-Anne finds so rewarding. She particularly enjoys the challenge of helping clients to better distinguish between their real and perceived M&E needs.
With tertiary qualifications in both economics and natural resource management, Lee-Anne has had a varied work history. Prior to commencing M&E consulting in 2007, Lee-Anne was a biodiversity conservation management planner (in Bangladesh); managed donor-funded programs in developing countries; taught economics at the University of New England and the National Economics University, Hanoi. She also delivered a range of contracts with the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, the most fascinating of which was walking a 360km section of the wild dog fence to map its condition in one point in time.
After four years supporting the company’s Founding Director - Dr Jess Dart - to manage the business, Lee-Anne became Clear Horizon’s Managing Director in mid-2015. Outside of work, you’ll generally find Lee-Anne relaxing with family and friends, hiking in Tassie and New Zealand, and at the theatre.
