Margot Plotz

Senior Director

Margot is a highly organized and structural thinker who analyzes the big picture without losing sight of the details. She specializes in project management and business development, supporting client relationships and providing strategic operational expertise at Basis.

Margot is captivated by two things:  history and NASCAR.  When she isn’t pondering the ways historical policymaking affects our communities now and in the future, you might find her at one of our nation’s 23 NASCAR tracks (she aims to visit each one). A native Coloradan, Margot also enjoys spending time camping and skiing/snowboarding with her husband, son, and friends.

Before joining Basis, Margot served as the Learning Systems Director and Development Director at a Colorado education non-profit where she led the vision and strategic direction for strategic sourcing. Margot also served as a development manager with McREL International and as an academic policy officer for the Colorado Department of Higher Education.

We are an independent research firm specializing in policy research & program evaluation, delivering reliable data to inform policy & guide decision-making.
