Hello! I'm Elle Roberts. Two Thursdays ago, I started in my role as the Social Media and Public Awareness Coordinator at The Milk Bank. My time with the organization has been a fantastic whirlwind so far, from playing peek-a-boo with our office baby to pasteurization training with Kendra and pulling a monthly newsletter together with the community engagement team.
I am an artist, writer, and transplant to downtown Indianapolis, my home of nearly five years. I spent my formative years in The Region, the tiny Northwest corner of Indiana, and hold a B.S. in Organizational Leadership from Purdue University in West Lafayette. My work has centered women, young people, social services, and the cultural arts scene since moving to the city in August 2013, including locally renowned grassroots gender equity project shehive. Over the span of my career, I have served several nonprofit organizations in the areas of strategic communications, program coordination, and community engagement.
When I am not at The Milk Bank, I am most likely writing essays and original music, performing my work in creative spaces across Central Indiana, and spending time with my amazing partner and my favorite six-year-old, Liliana.
I am proud to be the newest staff member joining TMB, bringing my love of the written word, communal connection, and indelible creativity to a fantastic team. I have much to learn about TMB, milk banking, breastfeeding, and parenting and I am excited to serve an important mission, providing safe human milk to every baby in need. In my role, I look forward to engaging and building community to support healthy, growing families.
