“Play with purpose” is one of the smart ideas fueling Raleigh’s innovation pipeline, with community leaders like Sally Edwards exciting and engaging visitors with big ideas they can take home.
In 2007, she led the merger of two downtown Raleigh museums to create Marbles Kids Museum. Today, the museum and IMAX theatre attract more than 600,000 visitors every year.
Sally grew up in Raleigh, and went on to earn a BS at UNC-Chapel Hill and MBA at Duke University. In addition, she studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and has completed several continuing education programs at Disney.

Before stepping in to create Marbles, Sally worked in strategic consulting after several years in the golf hospitality field and an early career in development for a not-for-profit worldwide outdoor leadership program. An endurance cyclist, Sally regularly enjoys Raleigh’s large network of single-track trails and greenways.
