Vicki Zimmer

Research Associate

Vicki joined the Via Evaluation team in 2020. Prior to joining Via, Vicki discovered the world of program evaluation when she began working for an evaluation firm that specialized in supporting state and federal education grants. In addition to learning evaluation best practices, she developed her skills in quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis and data visualization.

Vicki received her B.A. in History from Nazareth College and her M.S. in Library and Information Science from Simmons University. She has worked and interned in a variety of library settings, including public and academic libraries and archives.

A Rochester native, Vicki is happy to be back in Western New York after time in other states and is enjoying exploring all that Buffalo has to offer. She is very excited to continue to learn and expand her skillset at Via Evaluation, and is eager to support schools and organizations in Western New York to use data to guide decision-making and program improvement.
