She then returned to her hometown of Sacramento and spent four years working for Capitol Impact, a political consulting firm focused on California education reform. Her research interests include the topics of school/district interventions, teacher workforce, and accountability. She is specifically interested in looking at the attraction and retention of effective teachers in underperforming schools, and the effectiveness of interventions, such as school choice and school takeover, on teacher staffing and retention.
