Cecily currently leads evaluation, learning and knowledge management with Flamboyan Foundation, where the evidence she gathers and produces will support the identification and dissemination of effective family engagement strategies and innovations in DC and beyond. She is drawn to this work because she grew up in a family of educators, has worked toward the improvement of equitable educational opportunities her entire professional career, and embraces the potential for effective education to impact and inspire each generation of children and youth.

Prior to Flamboyan, Cecily served the students of Prince George’s County Public Schools, MD (PGCPS) as the Executive Data Strategy Coordinator in the Division of Human Resources, where she led the human capital strategic initiatives for the school district and focused on the measurement of district initiatives with the PGCPS Department of Research and Evaluation. Cecily’s prior work experience includes research with the University of Maryland, College Park, U.S. Census Bureau, and the American Institute for Research. Cecily’s community service work is focused on the children of Montgomery County, MD, where she is raising two awesome sons who are growing into young men that will change the world.
