Ann McQueen, Ph.D. - Operations and Policy Analyst

"I love my job. I have the benefit of working on a variety of policy, programs, and special projects related to helping older Oregonians achieve independence, and dignity and to have as many choices about their lives as possible. My time at the IOA helped me to understand the value of research, to be a smarter consumer of research, to ask better questions, and to think strategically. The contacts I made at the IOA and during my graduate school years have been invaluable when I’ve needed references, advice, and partners in collaboration.  IOA gave me the unique opportunity to combine work on a large research study with challenging coursework and real-life experience. The integration of all of those pieces has given me flexibility and skills that I can use almost anywhere."
