Currently, she works with the Washington State, Office of Public Defense (OPD) as a data analyst on their Blake v. State triage team.  Her close connection with OPD allows her to see a closer look at the work happening on the ground level. She is able to talk and connect with not only lawyers and staff at the office, but she additionally talks with individuals that were previously incarcerated including those that are represented in the Black Prisoner Caucus and those affected by the Blake v. State case. With her closeness to these organizations and other non-profit organizations that work towards a better criminal legal system, she is able to get a closer look at the effects and struggles in the criminal legal system. Her ties to OPD and the organizations have and continue to heavily influence her research agenda.
