| WHO WE ARE
As Principal at Threlfall Consulting, Valerie Threlfall helps mission driven organizations develop and refine their strategic plans and performance measurement systems. She brings deep expertise in data-driven decision-making, complex data insight gathering, and developing organizational competencies for systematically listening and learning from clients, or those organizations are seeking to serve. The majority of Valerie’s clients work in the youth and education space.
Prior to starting her own firm, Valerie was founding director of the Center for Effective Philanthropy’s (CEP’s) YouthTruth project—one of the first national efforts to gather comparative feedback from students about what’s working and not working in their schools. Under Valerie’s leadership, YouthTruth surveyed more than 125,000 students from 210 schools.
Prior to joining CEP, Valerie was part of the core business team that built the successful start-up biotechnology company, Momenta Pharmaceuticals (publicly traded, $750MM at peak). Valerie holds a joint MBA and MPP from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
