Lisle Bertsche Kehr


King County Grants Manager

Lisle manages data, evaluation, and grants administration for the Best Starts for Kids Initiative to further tell the story of the impactful programs that support youth in King County.

Lisle came to SOWA after spending four years with Sprockets in Saint Paul where she supported and advocated for high-quality expanded learning for youth through storytelling, data, and evaluation.

She feels fortunate for the opportunities to learn from young people through her roles in environmental education, teen leadership, and civic engagement programs. Her interest in putting data to use for continuous learning and improvement drives her work with the Best Starts for Kids initiative.
