Shelby Andersen-Holt is a Research Analyst who partners with foundations, government agencies, and community organizations to learn from the people implementing and participating in social interventions. Shelby believes that her role as an evaluator and social worker is to subvert traditional power dynamics and dignify the voices of the people in and behind programs.

Shelby has over seven years of experience evaluating programs in areas such as urban agriculture, SNAP incentivization, workforce training, juvenile justice reform, international higher education, emergency housing, and kindergarten readiness. She has led robust quantitative and qualitative analyses on complex datasets, facilitated and designed Theories of Change, and conducted qualitative fieldwork in Guatemala and Greece. At Q-Q Research Consultants, Shelby has led projects for clients such as the W. K. Kellogg Foundation’s Racial Equity and Community Engagement team, the Forest Stewardship Council Indigenous Foundation, the Broward County Health Services Department, and The Miami Foundation.

Shelby holds a Master of Social Work from the University of Michigan and a bachelor’s degree in International Studies from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
