Division operations manager, SRI Education
Kristen Rouspil, MPH, has been a project manager at SRI for more than 15 years. She has extensive knowledge, skills, and experience managing large, complex multiyear projects and teams to ensure intended outcomes are achieved on time and within budget. She currently manages the operations and policies for SRI’s Education Division and serves as the project manager for an Education Innovation and Research (EIR) study examining the effect of the WestEd Early Math intervention on young children’s mathematics skills.
Previously, Rouspil managed data collection for Project SECURE, a multitiered, evidence-based framework designed to strengthen the resilience of students most at risk for disciplinary exclusion, gang involvement, and trauma. She also oversaw data collection for the Cognitive-Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS) program in large, urban school districts. Before that, she managed SRI’s evaluation services for First 5 San Mateo County, which assessed the impact of a comprehensive early childhood system of care on children from birth through age 5 and their families.
Rouspil’s area of expertise include program evaluation; qualitative and quantitative data collection, including interviews, online surveys, observations, and case studies; data processing and analysis; technical assistance and training; and community outreach to promote health prevention and wellness.
Rouspil holds a Master of Public Health degree, with an emphasis in health education, from San Jose State University.
