Brei Cecil-Satchwell
director of program operations

A self-proclaimed travel enthusiast and Anglophile (her husband is a UK native), Brei Cecil-Satchwell is the Grant & Program Officer for the State Robotics Initiative, where she manages the application and funding process for elementary schools across Indiana.

Growing up in a family who encouraged creativity and self-expression led Brei to study Interior Design and Studio Art at Ball State University. After spending her early career in design, Brei switched gears to the non-profit world in Indy where she has successfully managed and improved educational programming, spending eight years at the Indianapolis Art Center and most recently serving as the Director of Education & Community Engagement at the Indiana Historical Society. 

Brei continues to moonlight in interior design, dabbles in art and writing for fun, has a deep appreciation for most music (most especially 90's alt-rock) and enjoys her husband's cooking, red wine, and the great outdoors. She lives north of Broad Ripple with her husband Jake and rescue pit-mix pup, Pearl.
