Hannah Wohltjen is a program evaluator who is passionate about making evaluation approachable, accessible, and useful. Hannah couldn’t decide whether she preferred quantitative or qualitative research and evaluation methods, so she specialized in both by earning her M.A. in medical anthropology from the University of Kentucky and her M.P.H. in prevention and community health from the George Washington University. She has experience with all phases of evaluation, but is particularly interested in evaluation design, innovative data collection methods, and data visualization. Hannah has had the opportunity to work on evaluation projects with a variety of state agencies and nonprofits.
