Why I work at Impact on Education:
As a Louisville native, BVSD alum, and the mother of a soon-to-be public school student, I’m particularly interested in supporting our local education system. However, what truly drew me to Impact on Education was the opportunity to use my talents to help our local community close the opportunity gap. Now, perhaps more than ever, the importance of public education is paramount.
What makes me smile:
Thoughtful design, a great story, Louisville, people who aren’t satisfied with the status quo.
The importance of education:
Growing up, the best advice I got from my father was to “follow value.” My experiences in school influenced my life in ways I didn’t realize at the time, but my desire to learn never faded, and was always something I knew the value of. For me, helping students find and follow what they value is an important foundation to K-12 education.
More about me:
I pride myself on being a hybrid professional – a creative conductor – working at the intersection of storytelling, project management, and design. Working in communications since my early career, my experiences leading marketing for an electric bicycle company and building entrepreneurship programs are what helped me define my niche. I gravitate toward people and organizations that are passionate about making a difference in the world and Impact on Education is doing just that.

Typography, Louisville history, how to make a good cup of coffee, organizing, and why I have a chihuahua named Monkey.
