Lynn Overmann

Vice President of Criminal Justice, Arnold Foundation
Lynn leads the Foundation’s data-driven justice project, a continuation of work that she started as senior advisor to the U.S. chief technology officer in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. The effort helps governments use data to identify those who are frequently involved with local criminal justice and health care systems, and assists jurisdictions in finding ways to better serve this population while reducing taxpayer costs.

In addition to her distinguished career in the federal government, Lynn worked as a civil rights and criminal defense attorney. She began her work in criminal justice by serving as a public defender. Lynn graduated from the New York University School of Law and received her bachelor’s degree from Bryn Mawr College.
