Over the past few months, JG Research and Evaluation has added five new employees to our team: Lisa Curry, Logan Beskoon, Mike MacDonald, Stephanie Cole, and Steven Fuller. To learn more about our new coworkers as humans outside of the work space, we asked each new employee: What is your ideal [Montana] day off? And, Where would you be getting ice cream on this day off? To learn more about their degrees and career interests, follow this link to our team page.
Adding yet another avid mountain biker to our team, Lisa Curry joins JG as a Research Manager with a strong inclination toward research and a background in child care services and vulnerable populations.
Another Sweet Peaks fan, Logan Beskoon jumped in as a JG Data Quality Analyst after receiving his master’s degree in Business Analytics from the University of Montana in May 2022, and might be the most musical of our team.
Mike MacDonald, who has a background in water quality data and joins JG as a Data Engineer, might be the only JG team member to think of someone else when asked where he would be getting ice cream…
Adding another river-fanatic to our team, Stephanie Cole grew up in Yellowstone National Park, dodging bison on her way to and from elementary school. Her background in harm reduction and public health makes her a great fit as a Research Manger at JG.
Steven joins JG as our new Research and Communications Associate, and zooms in from North Carolina to give us a great understanding of what one does without access to Sweet Peaks or Genuine ice cream. His answer sounds a lot like a team trip to Goodberry’s!
