We asked our board members to answer a handful of pretty standard questions without thinking too hard about them. We found that YPAL’s board is made up of some interesting young professionals.
Brian Walter was born and raised in Louisville, which has helped develop a passion and love for his hometown. Outside of his job at Humana, he spends time with family, working out, or catching a show/concert.

WHY YPAL: YPAL offers me the opportunity to give back, and highlight the amazing things that young professionals are doing all around Louisville.
