About Lindsay

Welcome! My name is Lindsay Morgia, and I am the founder of MRS. My work is about helping nonprofits build their capacity for high-quality data collection, analysis, and reporting to show their positive impacts on communities. I do this through project planning and implementation, data analysis services, and embedding data education into my work with clients.

Before becoming a consultant, I spent 13 years in the nonprofit and public sectors. Like so many in these worlds, I wore many hats: program manager, event planner, database guru, research analyst, and policy advocate, to name a few. But as I grew in my career, I realized that I am best suited to work that involves collecting and analyzing data for problem-solving, such as:

  • Conducting an in-depth needs assessment for the Massachusetts Child Fatality Review Program to identify core challenges and create solutions to improve outcomes

  • Designing  and implementing a survey for the Massachusetts Childhood Trauma Task Force to identify the types of screenings, assessments, and interventions providers offered to children who have experienced trauma

  • Facilitating dialogues to transform data collection and reporting for the Massachusetts Office of the Child Advocate

  • Gathering and sharing insights regarding the barriers homeless youth face when trying to access services with the Massachusetts Appleseed Center for Law and Justice

Now, as a consultant, I bring these experiences, values, and research skills to nonprofit organizations across the country that know they need to use more data but do not have the time or expertise to do it on their own. I specialize in:

  • Providing data analysis services, including quantitative and qualitative analysis

  • Teaching nonprofits how to clarify their questions and choose the right tools to find the answers

  • Developing data strategy plans for nonprofits to help them build their capacity to collect and use data over time

While I'm currently based in Colorado, I work with organizations across the United States. I honed my research and problem-solving skills through the University of Massachusetts Boston Public Policy Ph.D. program. I received a Master’s in Urban and Regional Policy from Northeastern University, a B.S. in Special Education from Boston University, and a B.A. in Linguistics from Boston University. When I’m not diving deep into data, you can find me at my local powerlifting gym, trying to break 235lb on my deadlift, or watching horror movies with my dogs, Penny and Lucy.
