Metro Smart Cities Coordinator
Keegan Korf guides the Metro Smart Cities Initiative with a passion for education, advocacy, and inclusion in the Omaha community. Korf’s background is in both communications and in education. She has served in the past as both a high school English teacher, and most recently an instructional technologist for the Omaha Public Schools. Focused on digital citizenship and privacy, Korf’s background in instructional technology and district leadership contributed to system-wide shifts in technology use across the school district and the state of Nebraska.
A Nebraska native, Korf has lived the majority of her life in the Omaha-metro community. She is a proud graduate of the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s School of Communications having later earned a Master of Arts degree from College of Saint Mary, and finally a Master of Education degree in Leadership and Learning from Midland University. She is a graduate of Leadership Omaha Class 40, a member of the Hanscom Park Neighborhood Association, and a member of the Board of Trustees for the Omaha Public Library.
“Omaha is my favorite city in the world and I am proud to live and work here,” said Korf, “…but we have work to do. Having worked in both education and technology over the last eight years, I’ve seen some of the most amazing things that Omaha has to offer, but I’ve also seen the inequity of resources and services provided to the people of our community. We can use technology as a powerful tool for good in shaping the future of our city. I am honored to guide this work in innovative technology and transportation, and to help make Omaha an even greater community for all.”
