I lead an organization called For Evansville that brings people together to solve our city's most pressing needs. We do this by convening leaders, cultivating collaboration among them, storytelling about a better city, and navigating paths forward. 

We pursue a city where every person:

  • experiences love and gives love

  • prioritizes the holistic wellbeing of all people

  • has work that provides community value and individual purpose
