As a true-crime aficionado, Dayna respects the investigative process—from examining the who, what, when, where, and why to solving the case. Fortunately, this interest pairs well with her work, serving as the foundation for her research and analytical methods and critical thinking skills. No matter the topic or project, Dayna takes what she’s learned as a self-appointed sleuth to get the job done. 

At PSC, Dayna employs her investigative prowess to identify, analyze, and interpret data for the firm and its clients on a variety of topics. As a data scientist, she also applies her skills to measure program and policy impacts, support continuous improvement of client initiatives, and develop reports and other deliverables to support data-driven decision making. 

Prior to joining PSC, Dayna worked at the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington, where she supported policy and advocacy efforts on a variety of civil liberties issues at the state and local levels.
