    • Mackenzie Moss

      My name is Mackenzie Moss and I graduated from BSU with a Master’s in Public Administration in May of 2021. Throughout my master’s program, I was fortunate enough to hold a research assistant position with the IPI. I learned so much from working with my peers and networking with our large community of clients in my role. It was particularly rewarding to be part of such an awesome team during the pandemic, as we supported each other through a transition online all while upholding our commitment to provide objective research to inform decision making. I am so grateful for the amazing leadership at the IPI, without whom I wouldn’t have my current position as an Evaluator for the Idaho Legislature’s Office of Performance Evaluations.

      Even having come to IPI from a non-research background, first through Boise State’s WorkU internship program, and now as a work-study student, I can say my experience working here has been nothing but positive. Everyone on the team at IPI is encouraging and kind towards each other, as well as passionate and diligent about the research they produce. I truly appreciate the opportunity they’ve given me to get started on my career in graphic design, and I am proud to help assist them in presenting the best version of their work to the community.
