Ms. Jennifer Pooler

Ms. Pooler (M.P.P., University of Southern Maine) is a Senior Research Associate at IMPAQ International with nine years of experience conducting social science research and program evaluation for a wide range of federal and private clients. She has applied her expertise in quantitative and qualitative evaluation, data collection, and analysis in a variety of topic areas, including maternal and child health, nutrition education, and the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).

Before joining IMPAQ, Ms. Pooler served as the project director for the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Epidemiology and Statistics Program funded by the HRSA Maternal and Child Health Bureau, which served to improve data capacity and dissemination of MCH topics in state and local MCH programs. She also led a study assessing prevalence of postpartum depression among WIC mothers from a nationally representative sample of new moms, and contributed to multiple WIC studies, ranging from participant acceptance of changes to the WIC food packages and WIC benefit use, to studies of improper payments to vendors and state agency cost-containment practices.
