about me

IMG_1934 (1)

I graduated from the joint doctoral program in social work and sociology at the University of Michigan in 2015 and am now a senior policy analyst at the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, where I work to foster research on family economic security and to connect that work to policy conversations. With Alexandra Murphy and Jamie Griffin, I am investigating how transportation insecurity shapes inequality.

Previously, I worked at Mathematica Policy Research, where I was a human services researcher studying TANF, labor programs, and criminal justice. Before graduate school, I worked at Fountain House, an organization serving  individuals with serious mental illness. There, I learned on the job about the importance of meaningful work and strong relationships for individual well-being.
