Scott Consulting Partners LLC is an expansion of the woman-owned, small business consulting firm founded in 1999 by Sheryl Scott.
Sheryl Scott (who goes by Sheri) has a Masters degree from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, and over 20 years of experience working with diverse communities. Sheri has made dozens of presentations at public health and evaluation conferences in the United States and Puerto Rico. She is a member of the American Public Health Association, and Society for Public Health Education, as well as a member of the Independent Consulting and Indigenous Evaluation Topical Interest Groups of the American Evaluation Association. She serves as a peer reviewer for the professional journal, Health Promotion Practice.
After 25 years, Sheri is still amazed at the dedication and talent she encounters in her work with public health agencies, tribal Nations and non-profits. In her “off the clock” time, Sheri enjoys working on prairie restoration, wandering in the woods, and collecting wild foods.
Gifty Amarteifio is an evaluator from St. Paul, MN. She holds a Ph.D. in Evaluation Studies and a MA in Public Policy from the University of Minnesota. She has conducted evaluations in K-12 education, higher education, community-based organizations, non-profits and government agencies. Her evaluation journey in these various sectors has allowed her to acquire skill around instrument development, purposeful data gathering, data analysis, and program implementation; all of which aids to her systems thinking approach to evaluation.
Gifty’s dissertation work exploring the implementation of a school-wide learning technology initiative has solidified her understanding of how to integrate new ways of practice in a system of various stakeholders. She believes that the best approach to identifying solutions and a pathway forward begins with a collaborative mindset that engages traditionally included and excluded voices. Gifty thrives in the space of complexity and enjoys helping organizations use theoretical reasoning to align their activities and programmatic goals. She is a current board member of the Ghanaian Association of Minnesota, and the Ripley Memorial Foundation.
In addition, Scott Consulting Partners draws on a network of talented associates who specialize in curriculum development, technical assistance, cultural diversity, policy analysis and participatory research.
