Karley graduated with a Master’s in Public Policy from the University of Michigan’s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, where she studied social policy, program evaluation, and information policy and ethics. Prior to graduate school, Karley spent four years conducting workforce development research and strengthening links between employers, social services, and educators in metro Detroit. She also volunteered with community food and education initiatives. Karley aims to increase the effectiveness and accessibility of social and employment supports by improving the technology and information infrastructure they rely on, and is especially excited to join the Digital Corps to strengthen those skills. She also holds a BA in Economics and Mathematics from Western Washington University. Karley likes to spend her time playing bassoon with a community band, running, gardening, and rock climbing, as well as relaxing in the sun with her cat and tortoise.
