Morganne McKinney, MPH

Morganne McKinney, MPH, is an Evaluation Associate who joined LMA in November 2021. Morganne has Bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Therapeutic Recreation-Child Life from The University of Iowa. Her early career included professional experience in provision of clinical pediatric psychosocial care services in large urban centers, as well as field work in research and community-based childhood interventions in low- and middle-income countries. This global health field work and experience working with high need, low income, communities led her to pursue a Master of Public Health in Global Health Program Design, Monitoring, and Evaluation at George Washington University. Since completing her Master's degree, she has had the opportunity to apply this public health program management framework in a variety of settings, including working with grassroots NGO's seeking to deliver trauma-informed mental health and psychosocial services to refugees, providing technical assistance and training in Public Education systems, and recently, managing and evaluating mobile health programs that drastically increase healthcare access to special populations of a Federally Qualified Health Center. 


Ms. McKinney's combination of experience in direct service provision, research, and program management helps her to stay connected to the goal of building sustainable, community-centered programs that are effective and evidence-based. She believes that evaluation is a great tool for organizations of all sizes, and most enjoys working with diverse groups in early childhood, public education, and the public health sectors. She cares deeply about contributing to healthy communities, encouraging others to use critical thinking, and learning more about how to be an anti-racist. 


As a southern Arizona transplant, she enjoys soaking up the desert sun at every opportunity with her rescue pup, hiking, drinking good coffee, exploring quirky small towns, and rooting for the underdogs.
