CAB Member

Blair is DQC’s director of communications, leading the organization’s efforts to communicate about its mission to change the role of data to ensure that data works for everyone navigating their education and workforce journeys.

Before joining DQC, Blair was director of media relations for the Collaborative for Student Success, where she led efforts to communicate around the need for high standards, aligned assessments, and strong systems of accountability. Prior to that, she advocated for a high-quality education for each and every student by managing communications around K–12 and teacher quality initiatives at The Education Trust.

Blair received her bachelor’s degree in political science and Spanish from the University of Pittsburgh, and earned a master’s degree in public policy, concentrating in education policy, from The George Washington University. When she’s not advocating to improve education for all students, Blair can be found trying new DC restaurants, traveling, or listening to live music.
