Founder & Head of Operations
Lexie King recognized the power of IMPACT nearly 8 years ago as a former student and intern at UCLA Anderson MEMES where she first connected with Co-founder Felisa Israel. Throughout her career working with some of the largest entertainment brands, artists and sports properties, King understood as a professional the demand in the industry for hard-working, highly trained interns and as a former intern the need for specialized training and mentorship.

Starting his professional career as a student intern, Nathan is a first-hand example of how proper training, guidance & opportunity can impact students in an extraordinary way. Nathan uses this background & the experience gained from teaching summer programs with Felisa at UCLA Anderson School of Management to create relatable curriculum that is tailored to maximize the learning potential of ambitious college students.
