Prior to joining trepwise, Palmer worked and interned for a variety of non-profits in New Orleans. Most recently, she worked at Covenant House New Orleans, a program for homeless, runaway, and at-risk youth. At Covenant House, Palmer gained experience in marketing, communications, event planning, and donor cultivation. In addition to working in development, Palmer led a significant expansion of the volunteer program at Covenant House.
Palmer graduated magna cum laude from Tulane University with a triple major in Political Science, Sociology, and English. While at Tulane, Palmer engaged with the New Orleans community through a women and youth mentoring program and through her internships at Eden House, a program for survivors of human trafficking, and the ACLU of Louisiana. After graduating, she knew she wasn’t ready to leave New Orleans, and was delighted to stay in the city and begin working with homeless youth at Covenant House.
Prior to attending Tulane, Palmer majored in dance at a performing arts high school in Houston. She has kept dance close to her heart and is a company member with the Mélange Dance Company. When she’s not dancing, you can find Palmer outside – whether it’s by the bayou, exploring a national park, or just enjoying the New Orleans sun.
