Education data matters to me because of its ability to empower educators, parents, and policymakers in service of student learning.


Jen provides general support to the team by conducting project-specific research, writing, and outreach. Her experiences tutoring and mentoring students in Baltimore and DC Public Schools inspired her to pursue a career in education policy so that every student has an equal opportunity to achieve success. DQC’s commitment to leveraging the power of data to improve results is what made Jen want to join the team.

Before joining DQC in 2016, Jen worked as a consultant for Hope Street Group, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works on jobs, education, and health. In this role she worked primarily on the application and selections processes for the National and State Teacher Fellowship programs. She also worked as an undergraduate intern for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Jen earned her bachelor’s degree from Loyola University Maryland and went on to earn a Master of Public Policy degree from The Trachtenberg School at George Washington University. In her spare time, she enjoys finding new things to do in the Washington, DC, area and attending concerts and sporting events.
