FOUNDER

The Culture Lab was founded by a Navy veteran turned middle school math teacher. While working in education she came to the realization that the world that many of the people in her community were trying to succeed in was designed for them to succeed, and she decided it was time to build her own. She is driven by a cause much larger than herself - to create a personal and professional haven for creatives in her community.
