Molly de Marcellus
Trainer, Evaluate for Change
Molly de Marcellus is an independent evaluator with a background in community development and natural resources management. She has seen how problem assessment, project design, and project implementation, are all greatly strengthened and more effective when all stakeholders are well-versed in monitoring and evaluation methodologies and approach their work through that lens. Prior to working to make her community more pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly, she oversaw performance measurement reporting for roughly 200 nonprofit grantees throughout Appalachia for the Appalachian Regional Commission, and she spent 13 years in international development, living and working in Latin America, the former Soviet Union, Africa, and Asia.
