Community Heroes Co-Founder, Executive Director and Board President, Community Connector, Soccer Mom: Kala has been on a lifelong quest to figure out what drives people to make their unique positive impact in the world. As a mom to three boys and like many parents out there, she was seeking a way to authentically teach her own kids about gratitude, compassion and service and launched Community Heroes to help drive a cultural shift from "ME" to "WE." She has worked on national and statewide policy initiatives to advance the 3Es (economy, environment and equity) with organizations to put those sustainability values to practice and as a funder to encourage civic involvement and activism. She has a Master's in Public Policy from Georgetown University and a Bachelor of Arts in Government and French from the University of Texas at Austin.
