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 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 conduct research and analysis for the firm and its clients on a variety of health and human services topics. As a research associate, she also applies her skills to support the health team with data analysis, evaluation, and writing to provide high-quality deliverables.

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.
