Sami’s practice focuses on developing and implementing learning strategies within networks, collaborative initiatives, government agencies, and non-profit organizations that are striving to make a positive difference in their communities. Since 2013, she has supported them with their evaluation and research needs.
Her current work includes conducting developmental evaluation, qualitative research (including using social network analysis to visualize the networks that she works with), and capacity building to help her clients understand how, why and whether they are making progress.
In her work with networks, she draws heavily on research that describes the quality of network cultures, the quality of collaborative processes, and approaches to evaluating and leading networks. She strives to support learning that acknowledges the complexity of the change that the people she works with are seeking to address.
She has a master’s in Social Anthropology from the London School of Economics, which has a deep impact on her qualitative and ethnographic approach. Sami is originally from Montreal and currently lives in New York City.
