A Little More...

My brother, two sisters, and I grew up on the north side of Indianapolis. I attended Indiana University to study Law and Public Policy, graduating in 2019, and began at the Foundation in 2020. It is fantastic to see the organizational growth and accomplishments in my relatively short time at the Foundation.
