Billi Shaner

Sr. Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Advisor

Billi discovered her passion for education through various roles in the U.S. public school system but transitioned to the field of international education six years ago to focus on education research. She believes research and evaluation is most beneficial when it inspires behavior change in program participants and leadership, and she enjoys supporting clients in this work through high-quality design, analysis, and data visualization.

Billi came to InformEd in January 2019 after working at World Vision International as a M&E Specialist on the Global Education team. There she participated in evaluation projects of early grade reading programs throughout Africa and Asia, leading in-country and virtual data collection training and data analysis of student assessments. As InformEd International’s Senior Advisor for Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning, Billi works with clients to develop monitoring and evaluation frameworks that lead to learning among stakeholders and meaningful change in future programming designs. She holds a Master’s in Intercultural Studies from Fuller Graduate Schools, a Bachelor’s in International Studies from Pepperdine University, and a Graduate Certificate in Education Research Methodology from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

When she isn’t working, you’ll find Billi at a playground with her kids and enjoying all the family-oriented activities Seattle has to offer.
