In 2003, after seven years working with nationally-recognized criminal justice research organizations, Dr. Kelly Dedel formed One in 37 Research, Inc. and began working as an independent consultant. Concerned about the individual, family and societal impact of the nation's criminal justice policies, Dr. Dedel is committed to minimizing the negative consequences by promoting evidence-based practices. 

Dr. Dedel has a reputation for providing high-quality work, on-time and within budgetary constraints. Her broad exposure to the various components of the justice system and to a large number of juvenile detention and correctional facilities creates an unusual capacity to transmit best practices and to put her work in a national context. 

Located in Cody, Wyoming, Dr. Dedel travels throughout the United States to provide her services, but is also able to manage projects and sustain high levels of productivity remotely. Prior to founding One in 37 Research, Inc., she was one of the founders of The Institute on Crime, Justice and Corrections at The George Washington University, where she managed several large-scale, multi-site federal grants. Prior to that, she was a Senior Research Associate at the National Council on Crime and Delinquency where she pioneered the Council's work on education in juvenile correctional facilities. While completing her doctorate in Clinical Psychology, Dr. Dedel provided individual, group and family counseling to youth on probation and also counseled survivors of sexual assault.
