Matteah Spencer Reppart, MA

Practice Partner Coach

 

For 15 years, Matteah has been designing, facilitating and leading evaluative work, supporting organizational development and providing team-based and individual coaching. She has worked internationally and domestically, with front-line staff to executives from nonprofits, collective impact initiatives, educational institutions and philanthropic organizations. Her project focus areas have included advocacy and policy change, neighborhood revitalization, workforce development, public health, clean water & sanitation projects and more. And yet, it is her partnerships with community-based organizations who are closest to the people and owning their collective power that hold a special place in her heart.

 

Matteah’s greatest joy is to look deeply, ask powerful questions while holding space for the answer to arise – provoking critical self-reflective inquiry. She is grounded in the premise that systems change happens through the transformation of its members and is passionate about supporting greater insight, awareness, clarity, purpose, alignment, and courage for individuals and organizations. Attuned to personality patterns that make us uniquely human and cultural patterns that make us humankind, Matteah is curious about eliciting the implicit value orientations that guide our attention, thinking and behavior. In her work, Matteah is committed to examining the systemic conditions that perpetuate existing inequalities, while exploring new structures and relationships to shift our reality.

Matteah earned her Masters Degree in International Development Administration (Political Science) through Western Michigan University, with a concentration in Leadership and Evaluation. In addition to her formal education, Matteah has studied various personal growth & healing modalities through the Vitalist School of Psycho-Spiritual Transformation, Facilitative Leadership through Michigan State University and Racial Equity Leadership and Liberatory Designs through the National Equity Project.

Above all, Matteah hopes to contribute her energy towards efforts that heal and restore our connections to ourselves, each other, Nature and the Divine. Had she not chosen the path of evaluation, perhaps Matteah would have been a landscape architect (i.e. brick layer, structural engineer, mapper, habitat restorer, conversationist and all things flowers, trees, bugs, birds and bats).
