Anne is a mental health counselor and doctoral student researcher at Colorado State University. Recently recognized as a doctoral fellow of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, Anne offers both practical experience and academic insight. She has provided evidence-based mental health care in carceral settings, problem-solving courts, and community reentry programs through a number of treatment modalities. In addition to working with justice-involved people in these spaces, she has designed and delivered trainings and workshops on trauma-informed practices for correctional staff. As a researcher, Anne focuses on the relationship between gender, marginalization, and the criminal justice system through participatory methodologies. She explores alternatives to incarceration by collaborating with diverse stakeholders, including justice-involved individuals and their families, to gain a deeper understanding of how impacted communities experience the criminal justice system. Anne is dedicated to ensuring that research is not only relevant and accessible to a broad audience, but also instrumental in advancing more equitable and effective justice practices.
