Profile: Program assessment and evaluation from a purely qualitative lens

requires understanding how people work independently and together within

that arena. Each environment is a culture unto itself and maintains its own

norms and ways of creating both meaning and change. Coming to understand

these processes and describe them demands the ability to know when to step

in and when to let others step up to the plate themselves as narrators of

their own story. Good qualitative research requires constant reflection

while working with people in common situations and getting to know them -

hearing their words, and their silences, and understanding what they are

asking for. It is my firm belief that successful qualitative research

design comes about more by asking, listening and facilitating those within

the setting, than it does by telling, directing, and deciding from without.

Excavating the essence of what is happening in an environment or culture

involves not only coming to understand that setting, but also learning to

become part of the meaning making within it. I appreciate the total

commitment that is required of a participant researcher in this kind of

role and love the full effort it both requires and allows. My approach as a

qualitative researcher is one of dedication to experiential effort, which

has evolved using tools grounded in both theory and the field. That said, I

am most interested in finding out how I can use my training, and life

experience, to help others avoid having the devastating life experience I

had.
