Sheila Walsh

Operations and Evaluations Manager

Sheila joined CCNB in 2018 to design and manage the organization’s data and evaluation systems. This helps CCNB use information about corpsmembers and their experiences in the program to better support corpsmembers on an individual level and for organization-wide decision making. Sheila also guides CCNB’s participation in external evaluation projects, such as the Listen4Good national study to help nonprofits gather feedback from their participants and use that data for program improvements.

Sheila previously spent 10 years as an external evaluator, providing consulting services to nonprofits and foundations in the Bay Area and around the nation. Through this work, she realized the importance of working within a nonprofit to develop strong data tracking systems that balanced gathering key pieces of information and making use of that information without overburdening staff.
