Jordyn (she/her) is a Research Associate with JSP. She received her Ph.D. and Master’s degrees in Criminology from Florida State University and her Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Criminal Justice from the University of Georgia. Her research uses quantitative methods to study the effects of childhood victimization and disproportionate minority contact on juvenile reoffending amongst justice-involved youth, individual and neighborhood factors that contribute to the non-reporting of intimate partner violence to police, and racial and ethnic disparities in GED/HSED program completion amongst an incarcerated population. Her dissertation, entitled “An Examination of the Mediating Effects of Negative Emotionality on the Relationship Between Childhood Victimization and Juvenile Reoffending,” used official juvenile justice data to study the mediating effects of negative emotionality on the relationship between victimization and subsequent juvenile reoffending. Jordyn’s research interests focus on social justice, the causes and consequences of victimization and criminal justice system involvement, social stratification, and disparate outcomes in the criminal justice system.
In Jordyn’s free time she enjoys reading, knitting, art, hiking, and spending time with her significant other and friends. She likes to experience new places/things and eat food along the way. She currently has one rescue dog and would like more.
