Nicole JollyManager for Data-Driven Policy at the Partnership for Youth Development

Since earning my Masters from UNO, I have applied my degree in serving as the Data Analyst at the New Orleans Juvenile Detention Center and now as the Manager for Data-Driven Policy at the Partnership for Youth Development. I have the opportunity to work with leaders and stakeholders across many different sectors to improve the way we support our young people. The Department of Sociology at UNO provided me not only with the credentials necessary to secure a job and start a career, but the faculty pushed me to build my research and writing skills while providing me with very practical applications and opportunities to connect theory to practice.
