Kendy Cox, Director Of Community-Based Training Services for the Oklahoma Marriage Initiative (OMI), offers a fresh outlook to Public Strategies and provides steady supervision to a team of project managers, community relations specialists and technical assistance coordinators responsible for developing and growing marriage education services across the state of Oklahoma. It is because of Cox’s effective leadership that Public Strategies has had the ability to expand healthy marriage programs to diverse populations, such as adoptive couples and parents of children with special needs.
Cox manages partnerships with numerous state agencies and organizations, and oversees national research projects focused on serving financially-vulnerable and underserved populations. She has worked closely with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, to document the OMI program strategies, data collection, productivity and lessons learned.
She provides technical assistance to other states, communities and organizations in areas of program development and oversight, public/private partnerships, curriculum adaptation and performance management.
