Director of Education Strategy
Romayne Levee is a seasoned education strategist who is in her element working with schools. For 15+ years she’s been professionally and personally fulfilled working among schools and colleges that challenge the status quo by innovating teaching and learning, diversifying their communities, affording life-changing paths to under-resourced students, and empowering young women to take their seat at the table.
As the founder of an independent high school herself, Romayne knows all too well the labor of love that it takes to stoke the flame of an educational institution. She sat on the Board of Vistamar School for 12 years as founding Board Chair, and currently sits on the Board of Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.
Prior to joining Mission Minded, Romayne spent a dozen years inside the halls of ad agencies BBDO and Chiat/Day where she rose to the role of Partner managing iconic campaigns for Apple (Think Different) and Energizer (Still going….). Following her agency days, Romayne founded and ran Nice Move, a firm that took a civilized approach to headhunting, before sitting on “the client side of the desk” as VP of Marketing & Communications at AIS/Mercury Insurance.
A graduate of UCLA (BA, Political Science) Romayne lives in Manhattan Beach, California, where she and her husband enjoy take-out dinners nightly now that their nest is empty. During her free time, she can be found playing beach volleyball on Hermosa Beach where the sand is deep and the sun is always shining.
