Since 2015, Courtney Boudreau has been a member of the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Team at Pathfinder. As a MEL Advisor, she worked closely with project teams to collect and use data to improve project performance. In 2018, she took on the role of MEL Manager for the Act With Her project, which takes a holistic approach to support Ethiopian adolescents as they move into adulthood. Courtney leads the design and management of the project’s monitoring and learning systems, allowing us to better understand and respond to the needs of adolescents and their communities.
In addition to her work at Pathfinder, Courtney is a second-year doctoral student in the Department of Population and Family Health at the Columbia Mailman School of Public Health. Her research interests are prevention of sexual violence against children, gender, social norms, and organizational behavior.
Prior to Pathfinder, Courtney spent four years conducting health research, including an inquiry into the contraceptive needs of female sex workers in Kigali, Rwanda, and an analysis of the correlates of disclosure of sexual violence among Kenyan youth. She holds an MPH in Global Epidemiology from the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University and a BS in Behavioral Neuroscience from Northeastern University.
