Martha A. Henry, Ed.D., President and Lead Evaluator

Marty Henry founded the firm based on the knowledge that critical needs in education programming were being left unserved and that the needs she saw around her would be best filled by the creation of a smaller, more flexible organization that could more readily tailor its services to the specific needs of clients. Her path as an educator had led from the K-12 classroom to faculty positions at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She spent five years with the Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL). Marty holds her Ed.D. from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a Certification in Evaluation Practice from The Evaluators Institute.
