Amielle DeWan, PhD
Aligning work towards the greatest possible impact can be a challenge but I love working with organizations and diverse teams to overcome problems and untangle complexity. Understanding needs and delivering the right tools and processes for teams to reach their goals is a real passion. I am inspired when we have helped people develop the skills and confidence to measure, evaluate, and improve on their work so they can make a powerful impact on the world.
My perspective and expertise has been shaped by over 20 years of experience in designing monitoring, evaluation, and learning systems for multiple national and international nonprofits and government agencies. I’ve worked with communities and organizations in Indonesia and China, across Europe, Africa, South and Central America, and the United States. I received my PhD from Cornell University in wildlife ecology, biostatistics, and GIS, an MS from the State University of New York in Conservation Biology and Policy, and BA in Biology from the State University of New York Binghamton.

Ellie Milano Associate, Learning and Impact
I am excited about discovering the factors that lead to real, measurable impact for teams on the ground, and the conditions that create effective and healthy organizations. I explore the processes that make project teams successful in achieving their goals, and how to identify and reduce barriers to success. My expertise in strategic and project planning is rooted in the realities of what really works for teams. I design meetings and workshops with that in mind – helping teams to create the best possible solutions for their work.
My diverse experiences have afforded me a multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving, rooted in the real-world challenges that face small and large non-profits. I have supported the development and management of projects across the globe including Bosnia & Herzegovina, Mexico, Indonesia, South Africa, and Europe. I hold an MSc from Tufts University in Conservation Medicine, a BS in Biology and a BA in Environmental Studies both from Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
