Customer Testimonials

"DataSmith solutions assisted Alaska’s P-20W SLDS team with several governance projects and with facilitation of interviews and meetings related to governance and to stakeholder engagement.  Nancy quickly identified our needs, proposed solutions, and leveraged her substantial experience and expertise to create products that met Alaska’s unique needs.  We have been consistently pleased with the products developed and with how easy Nancy makes it for us to benefit from her extensive knowledge and detailed understanding of the broad spectrum of issues to consider in P-20W SLDS development.  Working with DataSmith Solutions helped Alaska’s project staff establish credibility with stakeholders and with the research and technical communities. It has been a pleasure to work with DataSmith Solutions."

"Nancy has helped spearhead several REL Mid-Atlantic initiatives, including the Data Governance Workshop Series and the Longitudinal Data Use Research Alliance. Her expertise in the technical, practical, and policy issues related to data systems, the high caliber of her work as a whole, and her responsiveness to the needs of the diverse stakeholders in our region have made Nancy a tremendous asset to REL Mid-Atlantic."   

-Teresa Duncan, REL Mid-Atlantic Director

"I have worked with Nancy on several different projects including state site visits on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education.  Nancy does an excellent job representing her clients when supporting their stakeholders. Nancy also provided us with a white paper which required engaging state stakeholders on a complicated data collection topic; ultimately, the paper provided the federal government with a useful product used  to make decisions."
