James Connery, MBA

Senior Research Analyst


James came to ASR in 2010 and has contributed to Community Assessment Projects throughout California and Alaska by collecting secondary data and collaborating with members of communities to develop data that otherwise would not be available.  In addition to his work on community assessment projects, he has worked on needs and assets reports of children ages birth through five in nine regions of Arizona. He has also worked on homeless census and surveys for Monterey, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Riverside, Orange, Sonoma, and Riverside counties.  James provides support to the human resource department in the areas of billing and payroll for the three ASR offices.  James is an avid Bay Area sports fan and loves to see how statistics are increasingly used as an integral part of sports performance evaluation.  James is always interested in finding new and creative ways in which data are presented and used. When James isn’t working, he enjoys playing recreational league softball, and spending time with  his fiancé and their golden retriever.  James graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Arts in history with a minor in art education.
