Sophie has over a decade of program management and evaluation in the domestic and international anti-poverty space. She is passionate about finding ways to improve program quality by drawing on best practices and continuously assessing where program design and implementation can improve. At LIFT – an antipoverty nonprofit that supports low income parents in urban areas – she helped create the organization’s first learning and evaluation unit before assuming a broader program oversight role that combines program strategy and evaluation. She currently manages the national program team which is responsible for ensuring high quality program design and implementation in LIFT’s Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C. offices.

Prior to LIFT, Sophie spent seven years at the Millennium Challenge Corporation where she supported design and evaluation of large-scale investments in wide ranging areas including the power sector, vocational education, and government anti-corruption efforts. At MCC, Sophie worked with bilateral partners in Indonesia, Mongolia and Sierra Leone to ensure that investments fostered economic growth and embedded rigorous impact evaluations and performance management systems. Prior to MCC, she worked on refugee issues in Nepal and advocated whistleblower rights in international organizations. Sophie earned a Bachelors degree from Tufts University and a Masters from the Fletcher School.
