All clients come to me with a problem that is not getting the attention it deserves. I work with the client to hone in on the question they want to be solved, and then co-design a solution to help them answer that question. Here are some sample projects that showcase this approach:
Solution: Amy worked with Safe States Alliance on a project to answer this question by
1) Conducting an environmental scan of current partnerships; 2) Designing and facilitating a virtual convening;
3) Writing a Roadmap document summarizing next steps for business and public health partnerships; and
4) Co-creating a web-based tool for users of the Roadmap.
Solution: Amy worked with Safe States Alliance, the United States Coast Guard and the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators to develop a new set of recommendations for boat injury surveillance. Amy designed and facilitated four virtual meetings and an in-person Roundtable to gather information for the final recommendations document.
Solution: Amy is currently working with Safe States Alliance, the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, and the United States Coast Guard on designing and facilitating virtual injury surveillance workgroups to examine the recommendations put forward in Tier 1 of this project (listed above).
Solution: Amy worked with Health Care Education and Training (HCET) on improving their training and technical assistance offerings through surveys and focus groups with their reproductive health grantees.
The deliverables are not public-facing.
Solution: Amy is currently working with an academic-community partnership comprised of a major health system, a government organization and a non-profit organization to map user experience for older adults and their caregivers in order to re-design a system of care oriented around the caregiver + older adult dyad.
Solution: Amy worked with Health Care Education and Training (HCET) to design and facilitate two virtual focus groups and develop discussion questions for HCET and their funder, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, to consider when developing a marketing plan for Title X clinics in Wisconsin.
The deliverables are not public-facing.
Solution: Amy worked with Safe States Alliance, with funding from the Joyce Foundation, to design a virtual convening that brought together funders, program staff, and stakeholders of the NVDRS system to consider the policy priorities for the next legislative cycle. The deliverable included a prioritized list of policy recommendations.
Solution: Amy worked with SafeKids Wisconsin to conduct interviews with the staff leaders of each of Wisconsin's local SafeKids coalitions to understand the challenges and facilitators of their work. After summarizing the results, she designed and facilitated a convening of the leaders to begin developing work plans that were individual to each coalition, yet coordinated across all coalitions in their approach and problem-solved how to address common barriers.
Collaboration is what AES Consulting Firm is all about! In that spirit, Amy often collaborates with other consultants on projects looking to add her facilitation, evaluative-thinking, and qualitative data expertise. Here are some sample collaborative projects:
Amy partnered with Gromoske Consulting to develop an annual stakeholder report for a local child safety and injury prevention group.
Amy partnered with Gromoske Consulting to conduct an environmental scan of mental health consultation services and designed and facilitated advisory board meetings to inform the development of a business plan for a comprehensive mental health consultation program.
Amy partnered with Gromoske Consulting to perform qualitative interviews with members of HCET staff to understand the development and evolution of a program designed to increase colposcopy services in publicly funded clinics in Wisconsin.
Amy collaborates with Genesis Health Consulting bringing her public health and evaluation expertise to improve child health and well-being.
