Overshiner spearheads a grassroots style, charter constituent list-building effort that aims to include all charter school administrators, governing board members, teachers, and parents and maintains the Indiana Charter Action Network (I-CAN), a database of more than 3,500 charter school supporters.
In addition, she actively develops and maintains communication with a broad coalition of charter school supporters by attending parent-focused “back to school” events and coordinating community forums and film screenings that raise public awareness of charters, provide pro-charter messages, and challenge myths and misinformation pertaining to charter schools.

In the summers while attending college, Overshiner also interned for several high-ranking Indiana public officials, including U.S. Senator Richard G. Lugar, Indiana Lt. Governor Becky Skillman and U.S. Congressman Mike Sodrel.
