ATC City: Denver, CO

Sally believes that civic activism and social entrepreneurship are key to creating the world in which we all seek to live. Originally from Oregon, she attended Whitman College, and has earned two Masters degrees since (University of Hawaii - Masters in Ed; University of Colorado - Masters in Public Administration). She brings experience in education and business from her tenure with Teach for America Hawai`i and Google, respectively. In 2011, Sally founded Academy 360, an elementary charter school designed to close the achievement gaps and address health disparities in Montbello, an undeserved neighborhood in Denver, CO. She is now pursuing a Renaissance life of writing, travel, entrepreneurship, educational consulting, political activism, and teaching at the university level.
