Scarlett didn’t have a hard sciences background—but she spent a decade in the nonprofit world. Through her career, Scarlett saw the need for organizations like hers to become more data-driven—so she went back to school to earn a master’s degree in public policy and brush up on statistics. Afterward, Scarlett joined Civis for its balance of interesting work and impact.
Scarlett’s role is very collaborative, so she spends a lot of time chatting with her team to prepare resources and plans that will enable them to solve client problems. This also means that her job is project-based with diverse, client-specific goals like increasing participation in programs or helping federal organizations tackle big social problems based on insights from big data.
