Our Team

CRP is staffed by a highly educated, strongly credentialed team of experts with varied backgrounds including psychology, health planning and promotion, prevention, city and regional planning, law, sociology, geography, and history. They proudly acknowledge being “data geeks”, and they have an amazing (and eclectic) bandwidth of knowledge, and they really care about their community.

It is the talent and diversity of our staff that enables us to bring a holistic perspective to our work with a wide range of decision-makers, funders, and community organizations.
