What is your profession?
Social Investment Consultant @ The Moxie Project LLC
Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
I firmly believe entrepreneurship is the answer to many of humanity's most chronic issues including poverty, unemployment, famine, insufficient education, and inadequate healthcare. Social entrepreneurship is the perfect balance between altruism and capitalism. Being a trustee will give me the opportunity to be an integral part of the change I want to see in the world. I also feel Charlotte is growing its infrastructure to support social entrepreneurs, and with my help, Kiva Zip will be part of the development. Considering the prestige and successes of Kiva, I am very honored Kiva Zip has chosen me to become a Trustee for such a noble and just cause.
