Chelsea Marburger, Executive Director
Following in the footsteps of Caroline J. Farrar, Chelsea Marburger was appointed Executive Director of the Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association in January of 2018
Marburger’s tenure in the music, hospitality and events industry was in tandem with her founding of Project Purse Indianapolis, a 501(c)3 dedicated to the empowerment of women through the “power of the purse.” The organization provides purses packed with toiletries, feminine hygiene, first aid and more, to vulnerable women throughout Central Indiana. In addition, Marburger serves on the Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana Young Leaders Board as well as the CHIP (Coalition for Homeless Intervention and Prevention) Young Professionals Board.
“Filling the shoes of a powerhouse like Caroline Farrar is going to be a full-time job,” said Marburger. “I’m looking forward to learning from her during the transition and bringing my passion of all things Indianapolis to the table.”
In addition to Marburger’s community service, she also served as the Director of Civic Engagement for the Indianapolis City Market for a number of years under Executive Director Stevi Stoesz. Through thoughtful programming, successful grant procurement and event production, the mighty, three-person staff ushered in a new era at the Indianapolis City Market that continues to grow and cater to the ever-changing needs of the community.
