We asked our board members to answer some pretty standard questions without thinking too hard about them. We found that YPAL’s board is made up of some pretty interesting young professionals.

Malissia Milburn is an attorney at Barber, Banaszynski, & Hiatt, PSC. She moved to Louisville after graduating from law school at USC. Malissia joined YPAL and is now our Director of Inclusion where she works with all sorts of organizations around the city. Did we mention she’s fluent in Spanish?
