Scarlett’s Story
Starting Without Science
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.
