Born and raised in California, Grace moved to Colorado in late 2005. After finishing high school in 2010, she left to study biology at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She volunteered with multiple philanthropic organizations, including Manna Project International, Alternative Spring Break, and Dance Marathon. She graduated in 2014 with a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology, four years of research experience, and a year as the Internal Director of Dance Marathon under her belt.
After graduating, Grace worked at the University of Colorado Anschutz School of Medicine. She also volunteered as Marketing and Development Intern for SpayToday, NeuterNow! She is ecstatic about her return to the nonprofit world, especially because she gets to protect and support the state she calls home. In her free time, Grace likes to watch documentaries, dabble in nature photography, read, hike, and pet every dog she sees.
