We’re Celebrating 23 Years, and We’re Thankful
In 1998, Stella SiWan Zimmerman founded ACET, Inc., and began building a strong team. Today, ACET has seven employees and a group of consultants who provide high-quality, culturally tailored evaluation and consulting services.
As we celebrate, we’re grateful for:
1. Our partnership with clients. Through the 23 years, we have worked (and continue to work) with clients in health care, human services, education, workforce development, and more. We’ve traveled with clients for meetings at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and many other federal, Tribal, state, and county agencies.
2. Our dedicated team. We’re thankful for the contributions of each staff member: Amy Gustafson, Ashley Kitchen, Isaac Ezra Jennings, Jolene Roehlkepartain, Lisa Perkins Smith, Rachel Engh, and Stella SiWan Zimmerman. We’re also grateful for our consultants: Carlos Gallego, Karen DeYoung, Mary Ellen Murphy, and Sandy Donovan. Together, we create high-quality results for every client.
3. Our strategic advisory board. ACET has formed an advisory board in 2021, and we’re grateful for the helpful guidance of our board members: Terry Egge, Susan Gunderson, and Gene Roehlkepartain with support from Shauna Crane, our facilitator.
4. Feedback from our clients. One client said that ACET, “effectively planned and implemented culturally responsive and appropriate program evaluation tools and processes.” Another client said, “Their response rate to the request for data was an amazing 85 percent.” Our clients also tell us how much fun we are to work with!
We look forward to doing more projects with our clients—and connecting with prospective clients. Our strong, collaborative team enjoys working with you!
