Grace is a wild believer in adventure, community, and love as the fixings for true life-change. She feels most small (and therefore has the most wonder) when surrounded by the great outdoors with no-screens, Snapchat filters, or cell-service. She’s a lover of words, an avid day-dreamer, an ENFP, and a Type Three enneagram (anyone else out there?!). Her heart beats to spend time in the mountains, under pine trees, or biking the hills of Austin.
Born in Chicago, Illinois but a Texas native for 15 years, Grace graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Corporate Communication and a minor in Social Entrepreneurship + Non Profit. She is passionate about using business as an avenue to enrich the lives of others and leave a positive impact on the world. When Grace isn’t shaking things up in marketing at Kammok, she can be found eating tacos at Granny’s, reading in a favorite Austin coffee shop, adventuring with her YoungLife girls, or cooking up something new in her kitchen.
