Grace has been working for Progress Missouri in Jefferson City since 2014. She studied history and economics at the University of Missouri and learned the ins and outs of the Missouri Legislature while live streaming committee hearings. She enjoys writing and working to make Missouri a better state to live in for every citizen. Her hidden talents are: cribbage, being left-handed, and waltzing. If not on twitter or facebook you can find her in Columbia ignoring her cat, Toulouse.
Sheela originally interned at Progress Missouri in 2012, during her last semester at Mizzou. After graduating with degrees in statistics and international studies, she moved to Sri Lanka on a Fulbright Fellowship, and the year after, to Kolkata, India to work at a technology social enterprise. Sheela is back in Missouri specifically to work in good governance, and when she isn't busy getting up in arms about #MOLeg tomfoolery, she's either doing math, eating, or running.
