Ingrid leads the education planning programs at Strategy Arts. She helps education-related organizations set and meet ambitious goals in their pursuit of improving public education. From her first experience as an educator – as a Teach For America teacher in Baton Rouge, LA – to more recent work as the Director of Strategic Planning for KIPP Philadelphia Schools, she has operated with the philosophy that broad access to high quality public education is a necessity for a strong society. As a Program Director with Teach For America and a Director of Teacher Training and Development with The New Teacher Project, she has had extensive experience recruiting, hiring, preparing and supporting teachers who enter into incredibly challenging urban and rural public school classrooms. She has worked at the classroom, school, district, and national levels in her efforts to promote quality in education.
She is currently focused on supporting and facilitating strategic planning efforts and staff retention at high performing charter management organizations and has a particular interest in both process- and product-driven group training and facilitation.
In addition, she has recently worked with nonprofit and corporate clients to analyze and realign workflows, conduct market research, and facilitate stakeholder interviews and meetings.
Ingrid earned a dual masters degree in Education Leadership and Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania and a BA in French Studies and Anthropology from Smith College. She has served on the Alumni Steering Committee of Teach For America in the Greater Mid-Atlantic Region. Ingrid is an active community member of Old City, Philadelphia, and is a committed runner, cyclist, dragon boater, and crafter.
