Ibie is a Civitas Child Law Fellow J.D. and M.P.P. Graduate from the Loyola University Chicago School of Law. After law school, she worked for Common Cause as their youth organizer and state outreach engagement manager on democracy campaigns. In 2019, Ibie became the Chief of Staff for State Senator Robert Peters of the 13th District. She built his office based on radical transparency which led to continual listening sessions throughout his district. Ibie believes that people are surviving not thriving and the disinvestment black communities endure daily is something that cannot be ignored. Since then, she has been working for the State's Office of Minority Economic Empowerment (DCEO) supporting the economic efforts of small minority owned businesses. She is currently a proud member of the South Shore Works Board and serves as Secretary.
