Founder Dr. Emily Krichbaum established Remember The Ladies to help teachers and school districts provide more representative and inclusive histories to young girls and women. (Because, you can't be what you don't see). She is a historian of American women and earned her Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University, where she studied modern American social movements and received the Jane and Cecil Lyman Prize for Best Ph.D. Dissertation. Dr. Krichbaum spent the first ten years of her academic career teaching undergraduate and graduate-level courses at Ashland University and received Outstanding Female Faculty Member of the Year award in 2014 (and was nominated each year following) as well as the Mentor of the Year award in 2012, 2015, and 2017.

Dr. Krichbaum moved to Columbus in 2015 to become more involved with women knowing and making political history--specifically at the local and state level. She has served as an advising editor for women's history curriculum around the nation and is currently working on lesson plans to commemorate next year's 100th anniversary of women's suffrage. She serves on the board of 1girl and volunteers at The Women's Fund of Central Ohio.

When she's not writing about American history, she helps individuals and non profits with branding, marketing, and communications. Dr. Krichbaum looks forward to long runs, the Sunday paper, and the day women comprise (at least) 50% of the legislature. She lives in downtown Columbus with her husband, Brian, and two dogs, Quincy and Harper.
