Dena Shata

partnership Consultant

Dena is a Partnership Consultant at Root & Rebound. After graduating from Stanford University with a degree in Management Science & Engineering, she went to work in management consulting in Washington, D.C. While consulting, she enjoyed gaining exposure to analytical problems across a range of industries. 

Her passions have always been tied to issues of civil rights and prison reform. Throughout her college and consulting experiences, she focused on pro bono work on related issues as well. After two years in consulting, Dena decided to take a sabbatical to work more closely with communities impacted by the criminal justice system, which is what led her to Root & Rebound. 

In her spare time, Dena enjoys cooking, reading James Baldwin, and listening to podcasts or live music.
