A lawyer by training, Evelyn also practiced law with private law firms for several years and covered crime/judiciary policy for a decade on Capitol Hill (serving in a variety of positions, including as a U.S. Senate Legislative Director & Chief Counsel, as General Counsel to the chairman of a subcommittee of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, and on the staff of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee). During her tenure as a congressional aide, Evelyn authored numerous successful anti-crime measures as well as two child passenger safety laws on behalf of Members of Congress. Before joining the NFCC, Evelyn also served as a vice president at RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) for four years, where she conducted research on barriers to reporting sexual assault, privilege laws protecting the confidentiality of victim-volunteer communications, mandatory reporting requirements for rape crisis personnel, and sexual assault on college campuses. While at RAINN, Evelyn also testified before a U.S. Senate committee concerning crime on cruise ships, testified before the U.S. Sentencing Commission regarding penalties for sexual offenses, and advocated for the enactment of legislation to federally authorize crisis hotline services and authorize federal funding to reduce backlogs of untested DNA evidence at crime laboratories across the United States. Evelyn received her B.A., magna cum laude, in government from Harvard University and her J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law.
