Although originally from the North East, Jami currently lives in Leeds with her dog, Luna. She started her career working for a small NGO in Uganda and has since completed a PhD exploring the impacts of climate change on agriculture and worked on the evaluation of various UK-aid funded projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. After that, she spent 5 years at UnLtd – The Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs, before becoming a freelance Impact & Evaluation Practitioner over 2 years ago.
Jami’s current work mainly focuses on supporting UK-based charities and social enterprises to use data and evidence as a force for good. Her ADHD and dyslexia bring a unique perspective to her work and she’s always looking for creative ways to evidence impact. She is also the co-chair of the Charity Evaluation Working Group (ChEW), one of the founding organisations of the Equitable Evaluation Collective.
