Simply Strategy Adds Bandwidth

Updated: Jun 3, 2021

As both the breadth and depth of the firm continues to grow, Simply Strategy has added Anna Trainer, MA, MPH, as their new Research Analyst and Program Coordinator.  Trainer brings unique expertise to the firm which will be key in growing capacity for current client projects as well as expanding Simply Strategy’s business development capability.  Dorothy Carlin, Principal, said “I’m so excited to leverage Trainer’s background on our team. Our work is understanding people – and the perspective as well as analytical insight she will bring to our clients’ problems will be invaluable.”

Trainer joins Simply Strategy following the completion of her Master’s in Public Health from St. Louis University. Her diverse experience includes peer reviewed publications in both Public Health and Human Behavior. Her second Master’s degree in Anthropology and specialization in behavioral health communications and epidemiology make her ideally suited for behavioral research and statistical analysis. For Simply Strategy, she will use that lens to focus on project management and quantitative and qualitative data analysis. Trainer’s background in social science research strengthens Simply Strategy’s growing expertise in cultural competency and human behavior. “I am looking forward to applying myself to the diverse array of projects and clients that Simply Strategy serves in St. Louis, across the state, and beyond,” expressed Trainer.

This addition brings the Simply Strategy team to three full-time staff serving clients in more than 19 states, with assignments both domestically and internationally.
