Faith Kohler, J.D, is a graduate of Marquette University Law School and Wellesley College. A former federal agent who worked extensively in Milwaukee's high crime neighborhoods, Faith discovered film as a powerful vehicle to bring awareness and social justice to a variety of audiences. Throughout her law enforcement career and during her work in the Fortune 500 private sector, Faith served as a volunteer within Milwaukee's homeless community. Her interest in understanding poverty and researching solutions led to the creation of BatPowered Productions and the idea for 30 Seconds Away: Breaking the Cycle, which was filmed between 2009 and 2015.
