Stuff About Me:

 

I’ve completed a few marathons in the past (very slowly), but since I don't like fundraising, I’ve never run for a charity before.  It’s an indication of how deeply I believe in the Innocence Project’s mission that I feel proud to raise money for the organization this year.

Ever since I first learned about the phenomenon of false confessions, I’ve been troubled by the injustice of wrongful convictions. I admired the Innocence Project’s work for years before I joined the staff, and since being hired as a Research Analyst (dream come true!), I’m even more inspired. On a daily basis, I help collect and analyze data about exonerees and their cases, and I stay up-to-date on academic literature that provides insight into factors that contribute to wrongful convictions. I’m surrounded by bright, dedicated co-workers who are passionate about social justice, and I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some of our exonerees who – while they each have unique experiences and perspectives – never fail to impress me with their enormous strength and grace.

Because of all these amazing people, I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of the Innocence Project’s inaugural NYC Marathon team. Looking forward to wearing the IP logo on race day!
