Mindy Hightower King, Ph.D
Founder and President
Mindy has supported evaluation and measurement efforts for more than 80 different non-profit organizations, schools, foundations, and state and federal government agencies since 2000.
Prior to founding Limelight Analytics in 2015, Mindy served in research faculty positions at Indiana University (in the School of Education and in the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community) and was the Director of Research and Policy at the Indiana Youth Institute.
In addition to evaluation & measurement consulting work, Mindy holds adjunct teaching appointments in the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs and the Hamilton-Lugar School of Global and International Affairs at Indiana University, Bloomington.

Mindy’s approach to evaluation consulting begins with listening and learning from the client. Understanding each client’s perspectives, objectives, and expectations is critical to building a strong professional relationship where all parties can be candid and committed. Regardless of the client’s current capacity for evaluation and data collection, there is always an opportunity for learning and growth.
