Charli is a Case Manager at Kaplan Hecker & Fink. She graduated from Barnard College in 2018, from which she holds a degree in Political Science and Religion. Her undergraduate focus was in policy research, specifically in political behavior. While at Barnard, she conducted research on topics ranging from the effects of felon disenfranchisement on election outcomes to the efficacy of drug courts in their address of the over-policing of the illicit drug trade and the “collateral damage” of the War on Drugs. In addition, she designed a survey research study that examines the intersection between gender bias and racial resentment, proposing a new measure for the way the field understands bias towards women of color. As a part of her Religion coursework, Charli wrote a thesis entitled, “Chaos Coloring Conservatism: Nathan Wright Jr. and the Religious Politics of Blackness,” in which she engaged in archival research at the Schomburg Center for Research on Black Culture.

Charli’s interest in litigation was cultivated by her various internships at law firms in New York City, including Greenberg Traurig, LLP. Charli is pleased to be a part of the team at Kaplan Hecker & Fink. She plans to attend law school in the future and pursue a career that combines her interests in law and public policy.
