Co-Founder & CEO
I have been passionate about social entrepreneurship, leadership and development since age 14, when my peers and I co-founded Teens for Technology, an organization dedicated to improving computer literacy. Five years later, we raised $1.2M, funded computer literacy training on 100,000 computers throughout Jamaica, hired a local staff that is self-sustained today, and expanded to 2 other countries. In addition to my responsibilities at The Global Good Fund, I teach entrepreneurship to nurses as a George Washington University Adjunct Professor. I’m the Co-Founder of Blu2Green LLC, employing people with special needs to produce environmentally-friendly accessories made of recycled hospital waste. I co-authored the book “Sustainability for Healthcare Management: A Leadership Imperative,” featured in Handelsblatt’s Top 5 Business Books List in 2013. I also mentor a man with special needs developing his own social enterprise and have been supporting my neighbor to build a community helping elderly live independently.
