Julie Gilbert is a skilled evaluator who maintains (audaciously!) that she can meet any measurement challenge. Her training in epidemiology and health services research serves her well in designing meaningful evaluations and impact assessments. Julie’s philosophy is to balance rigour with reality. She approaches projects pragmatically and applies the best tools for any given context. Julie has over 25 years of experience in health services and policy research. She has worked in the public and not-for-profit sectors, mainly in the areas of healthcare and social services.
Currently, Julie is an independent consultant, providing organizations with strategic measurement advice and support. Her passion is to guide clients through thinking about their goals, what success looks like to them, and how to measure outcomes and impacts. She often brings new perspectives and solutions that help teams see through the complexity of measurement challenges.
Julie has an M.Sc. in Epidemiology and a Ph.D. in Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, both from the University of Toronto, where she now lectures and holds an adjunct appointment. She has over 30 peer-reviewed publications and has co-written one book chapter.
