As Senior Policy Analyst in Economics and Entitlements in the Center for Data Analysis, Greszler researches and analyzes ways to promote tax policies and entitlement programs that will optimize individual incomes and economic growth.

Greszler’s research and writing includes analysis of federal tax policies, including cost estimates and dynamic policy simulations.  She also focuses on Social Security and Disability Insurance reform, promoting policies that will preserve these vital programs for those who need them most without extracting excessive taxes on working Americans. 

Greszler has also written on the need for both public and private-sector pension reform to protect pension beneficiaries from massive cuts in promised benefits and to prevent a massive taxpayer bailout.  Greszler also provides commentary on issues related to women in the workplace. 

Prior to joining the Heritage Foundation in 2013, Greszler spent over six years as a senior economist on the staff of the Joint Economic Committee in the United States Congress.  She was also an intern at the Heritage Foundation from 2005-2006.

Greszler completed her graduate studies at Georgetown University, where she earned masters degrees in both economics and public policy.  She also holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Mary Washington.

Greszler, who grew up in a small town in Western New York now resides in Bethesda, MD with her husband and four children.
