Amber Ivey is a manager at a DC nonprofit where she helps make the nation’s civil legal system more accessible and affordable to the public by working with courts and stakeholders to modernize systems with the most promising technologies and tools to assist self-represented litigants and improve court efficiency. In her previous role, she worked on a team that explored the many ways that states use data, focusing specifically on how data analyses are being used to help make policy and budget decisions to improve programs and services to citizens. Prior to Pew, Amber worked for Maryland StateStat—a performance-measurement and management office created by former Governor Martin O’Malley (D). She also analyzed agency data to improve state government performance at the Governor’s Office of Performance Improvement under Governor Larry Hogan (R).
Before joining the State of Maryland, Amber was a logistics manager for a Fortune 50 company where she used data to drive efficiency, productivity, and profits. She switched from private to the public sector to use her skills in service of government efficiency. She is currently obtaining her Juris Doctorate and is excited to serve at the intersection of data, technology, public policy, and law.
