Michele Brown, Executive Director

Michele’s education and career has taken her from her hometown in Maine, to D.C., California, Chicago, Cincinnati and finally, to Louisville, KY, where she landed in 2015 as the Administrative Director for the KSBCF. Her experience in non-profit healthcare and global pharmaceutical marketing has given her a unique skill set that greatly supports the KSBCF mission. She holds degrees from George Washington University and Georgia State University, and when she’s not at work, you can find her running marathons, traveling and managing the busy schedules of her kids.


Sheena Ratliff, Administrative Director

Sheena is a passionate Administrative Director who is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the blind and visually impaired through non-profit work. Her years of valuable administrative experience allow her to bring efficiency and dedication to every project. She is a proud parent of two wonderful kids, and in her free time, you’ll find her enjoying the company of her husband, two kids and two dogs. She is actively involved in community and church activities. Sheena is committed to contributing to positive change and fostering a sense of community at KSBCF.
