Danyel Moosmann (she/her) has been a part of the TIER team since January 2016. She joins together her organizational skills, knowledge in families and child development, and advanced quantitative psychology skills, to manage projects and lead data analyses that are aimed at helping organizations learn how they can better provide services to underserved families, children, and youth. A couple of her most recent projects include managing a statewide needs assessment for the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and leading data collection and analysis on a national scan of home visiting programs that work with parents who have been involved in the criminal justice system.

Before moving to Boston, Danyel completed her doctoral training in Family and Human Development at Arizona State University (ASU). During her time at ASU, she worked at the Prevention Research Center, studying Mexican American families focusing on relationships between culture and adolescent adjustment, including their academic achievement and romantic relationships. Prior to ASU, Danyel attended California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB), where she completed both her BA and MA in Psychology with a concentration in Child Development.

During her time at CSUSB, she managed several research projects, including one that examined the impact of early trauma on inmate women’s adult psychological functioning, as well as one that examined the association between preschoolers’ cortisol levels and their kindergarten readiness skills. Throughout her graduate years at CSUSB, Danyel worked as a substitute teacher for the Ontario-Montclair School District. Prior to attending CSUSB, Danyel received her AA from a community college in her hometown of Rancho Cucamonga, CA–Chaffey College. During her free time, Danyel enjoys hiking and traveling with her husband and rescue Yorkie. Email Danyel >
