Blue Scarf's principal, Cheryl Kessler, has been evaluating since childhood. In her backyard. Way in the corner, beyond the lawn and fruit trees, Cheryl watched everything.
Fast-forward to 2001. Cheryl is a first-year graduate student in John F. Kennedy University's Museum Studies Program, listening to a guest speaker talk about evaluation. Cheryl's hooked.
A post-graduate internship at the Institute for Learning Innovation (Annapolis, MD) and Research Associate position (2003-2010) built Cheryl's expertise in conducting all phases of exhibit and program evaluation in children's museums, natural history museums, science centers, zoos and living history sites.
Following a move to Minnesota in 2010, Cheryl launched Blue Scarf Consulting and added libraries, performing arts organizations and professional organizations to her growing client list.
