Margaret Woley, M.P.A., is a self-professed data nerd who enjoys working with people, organizations and systems to help them better
understand how they can use data to make our communities stronger for all children, youth and families. She is particularly passionate
about the areas of youth homelessness, child welfare, education and the environment, as well as using data to highlight issues of
disparity and guide toward solutions. Though she is a Seattle native, Margaret earned
a Bachelor of Arts from Tufts University. After serving in AmeriCorps, Margaret returned home to get a Master in Public
Administration from the University of Washington Evans School of Public Affairs.
Margaret first joined MEMconsultants in 2008 as a research assistant in graduate school, and rejoined the team in 2015 after six
years of working to address youth and family homelessness across Washington State. She now enjoys working with clients to clarify
their data and evaluation needs, then design a plan of work and deliver useful tools to help move the organization and their work forward.
Margaret is experienced in all aspects of program evaluation including evaluation planning, tool design, data collection, analysis and
reporting. In addition, Margaret enjoys using data to create Tableau dashboards to support organization and system-wide learning and
growth. Margaret works with clients both local to the Puget Sound region and those with national reach. When Margaret is not in the
office, she’s often running or riding her bike around town or begging her two young boys to go to sleep.
