Grace joined LFA in 2015 with a background in public arts programming and education. She is passionate about programs that contribute to strong, sustainable, and vibrant communities. Her LFA project work spans a number of issue areas, including early education, arts and community engagement, and population and reproductive health. Grace has extensive experience designing and implementing high quality research and evaluation tools, and using findings to support clients in strengthening their programs.

Prior to joining LFA, Grace developed and produced multidisciplinary arts programming in New York City, Houston, and Los Angeles. Her background also includes managing special projects for a charter school management organization.

In her free time, Grace loves exploring the outdoors – both nature and the built environment, struggling through crossword puzzles, and cuddling other people’s pets.
