An excellent listener and communicator, Lucy brings strong skills in research, evaluation and policy review, as well as the ability to quickly get across complex or sensitive issues in evaluation.
With a background in law and a Master of Evaluation, Lucy has more than 15 years of monitoring and evaluation experience in both the Australian and international contexts. Her early experience as projects and advocacy manager with UNICEF Australia, where she monitored international development projects in the areas of child protection, education, water and sanitation, health, and HIV/AIDS in countries as diverse as Zambia, Burma and Bhutan, developed her interest in evaluation.
Since then Lucy has worked as a consultant with various partners on evaluation and research projects in the areas of human rights, social justice and public health, where she further developed her expertise in different evaluation approaches, qualitative and quantitative data collection techniques and analysis. After more than 20 years of editing and writing for various clients, she also has excellent writing skills.
In her spare time, Lucy likes to get outdoors - walking, running, swimming, camping - as well as catching up on news podcasts or watching the latest must-see Netflix series. Listening to music, reading, writing and - despite being an average cook - eating are her other great loves.
