Acorn International is pleased to announce the addition of Kerry Ground as a full-time consultant in our Houston office.
Kerry is an environmental consultant with experience in environmental and social research and management for international exploration and development projects. Prior to her arrival at Acorn International, Kerry was working on a study of lessons learned in performing ESIA for megaprojects in the extractives industry to minimize the variance between proposed versus actual impacts.
Kerry holds an MSc (Planning and Development) from the University of Guelph (Ontario, Canada) and has gained international field experience working on various projects, such as a Scoping Mission in India and the evaluation of a CIDA-funded development project in Vietnam. Most recently she completed a study identifying stakeholder perceptions of factors that influence effective implementation of CSR initiatives in the Philippines, the results of which were presented at the International Association of Impact Assessment (IAIA) annual conference in May 2013.
