Ken Ghalambor joined Ross Strategic in 2011. He has more than nine years of experience in natural resource management, environmental policy, and program design and evaluation projects, with significant experience providing project management, facilitation, research, and analytics support. His primary area of focus since joining Ross has been multi-stakeholder collaborative processes related to watershed restoration and recovery, most notably in the Chehalis Basin and Puget Sound.
Ken’s recent work is focused on the Chehalis Basin Strategy, an integrated approach to substantially reduce damage from major floods and restore degraded aquatic species habitat in the Chehalis Basin in southwest Washington. He also supports the McKnight Foundation to connect measurement, evaluation, and learning systems with program strategies for their Mississippi River and Collaborative Crop Research programs.
Ken holds a master’s degree in public administration with a focus in environmental policy from the University of Washington’s Evans School of Public Policy and Governance, and a Bachelor of Arts in urban studies and planning from the University of California, San Diego. In his free time, Ken enjoys being outside, meditating, reading, and eating delicious food.
