Prior to founding Agile Outcome Research, Dr. Stensland was a Senior Research Scientist for Eli Lilly and Company where he developed his expertise in observational study methods. His doctoral degree is in Clinical Psychology with an additional specialization in Applied Quantitative Psychology (statistics).

Following his own experience with divorce, Dr. Stensland has found a passion for helping others who experience the same hurdles in life and working to reduce the excess divorce rate altogether.

His goal is to have a meaningful impact on the lives of many individuals.

Make it Last
A little about our team

My passion for Make It Last
Born with analytical gifts and an affinity for puzzles, I can read the meaning behind data and see the impact it could have on our lives if we interpreted it correctly and listened to what it has to say. Make It Last provides an opportunity to have a truly meaningful impact in life by merging my analytical skills and passion for helping others.

My life’s passion
I love to see others grow in their relationships, faith, and understanding. Having the privilege of helping someone grow and improve their life is an experience that can rarely be matched.

My favorite quote
“Love is the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth... Love is as love does. Love is an act of will -- namely, both an intention and an action. Will also implies choice. We do not have to love. We choose to love.” |
- M. Scott Peck

My passion for Make It Last
I have felt the pain and helped others navigate the heartache of divorce and my heart can’t take anymore hurt. I want to use my experience to help others find the tools and information they need to have a successful and rewarding marriage.

My life’s passion
Our path in life is filled with people in need. As I move through mine, I strive to recognize when there is a need and do my best to help in any way I can.

My favorite quote
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” 
– Mahatma Gandhi

My passion for Make It Last
I want to help people find the right partner to help make their eternal commitment last forever. Not every divorce can be avoided, but if we have the proper tools to help enhance marriages, we should be doing all we can to share those tools.

My life’s passion
When I hold a mirror up to myself each and every day, I want to be able to answer “YES" to the question . . . "Did I do my best today?" I expect my best to get better each day and strive to reach my highest potential in all areas, with and for all the people I love and care about.

My favorite quote
"Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside themselves was superior to circumstance."
- Bruce Barton
