India Nixon-Lyon

India has worked in education and youth leadership for 15 years. She began her journey as a case manager for a youth support program for children of incarcerated parents. She earned her teacher’s license and became a high school community service learning teacher and from there began a fulfilling and rewarding career at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum. During this experience, she transitioned from the programming side of non-profit work to the operations side. More recently, she’s worked as a small business owner. She credits her grandmothers for her life journey, as they always instilled the importance of life-long learning as well as investing in young people. When she’s not at work you’ll find her exploring Philly with her husband, playing peek-a-boo, reading, and singing silly songs with her son.
