Our Team


Riley Forsythe – Operations Manager

Riley resides in the mountains of east Tennessee with her husband Tanner and daughter Bayler-May. Born and raised as a Hoosier, she attended Manchester University where she met her future husband. RIley started her GiGi's journey as an intern at GiGi’s Playhouse Fort Wayne and went on to graduate with a degree in education and special education. Since then, she has gone on to become our Operations Manager, guiding us through a pandemic and more. Outside of work, Riley loves hiking in the Smokies, spending time at the lake, searching for new and exciting local restaurants and ending the day sitting on her front porch with her family and a sunset.


Molly Brumleve – Programs Manager

Molly has had a love of volunteering since she was a child. She volunteered through middle school, high school and at IU, where she met her husband, Andy. When they started their family, Molly knew she wanted their kids to have the same passion for serving others. In 2016, Molly and her daughter, Hayden, started volunteering for GiGi’s in the early learner program, LMNOP. She then grew her role at the Playhouse to be the Family Engagement Coordinator before joining the Playhouse staff in 2022. Molly loves crafting, exploring nature and fishing with her family, petting all the dogs, and drinking copious amounts of coffee.  Molly and Andy have three kids, Hayden, Theo and Olive, whom you will frequently find volunteering during the summer, and a dog Django.
