We hired Holly Lewandowski to perform program evaluation of our capacity-building program. Holly is a great collaborator and she stays on top of things - which keeps us on top of things. She goes above and beyond and takes the initiative to offer new solutions. She's a life saver! I don't know how we would have gotten along without her!

Holly Lewandowski is a natural born evaluator, one who is competent and comfortable with both positivistic and qualitative methodologies. Being as visionary as she is detail oriented, she is comfortable with the entire evaluation cycle including; conceptualization of utilization-focused questions through data collection, entry, cleaning, analysis and reporting. Holly enjoys being “in the data” and has exceptional instincts important to the analyses of qualitative data and to linking those analyses to the larger literature bases of education and psychology. I have found Holly to be a highly intelligent, energetic, personable, self-motivated individual who strives to produce work and reports of quality that are relevant and consistently exceed stated expectations. In addition, she is a highly reflective and analytical professional who is as comfortable in project management roles as she is in a collaborative, team situation. Indeed, Holly’s interpersonal and communication skills are an area of exceptional strength, with her cultural sensitivity and respect unparalleled.

Holly Lewandowski has provided evaluation support for the Illinois Positive Behavior and Supports (PBIS) Network as consultant since June 2008. Ms. Lewandowski has excellent skills in organization and management of data as well as the ability to conduct different levels of analysis of data, which she then is able to integrate into well-written reports. Another benefit to Ms. Lewandowski’s contractual services is her capability in communicating with multiple stakeholders, hear their perspectives and provide reports and data in ways that are meaningful and useful on a variety of levels. Overall, I find Ms. Lewandowski to be a highly competent evaluation consultant and would highly recommend her to agencies/companies pursuing comprehensive and meaningful evaluation systems.
