I am an emerging policy professional experienced and academically trained in quantitative research, data collection, and analysis.  I have a strong writing background, including a bachelor’s degree in journalism.

Before graduate school, I worked in software and consumer finance. I gained valuable skills from each role including adaptability, time management and building and maintaining client relationships.  

I am a proud Nebraskan, where I grew up on horseback. These days, I travel as much as a I can, run normal distances, and climb rocks.
