Meet Keri from YAO-New York
Hi! I'm Keri and I'm a marketer with experience helping brands like Adidas, Campbell's, Fox Home Entertainment, InterContinental Hotels Group, Target, UPS and Yahoo!. I am currently an account executive with SS+K, a creative marketing communications firm. Previously, I worked with Hill+Knowlton's consumer marketing team on international and domestic clients. I graduated from Liberty University in 2012 with a B.S. Communication Studies and originally hail from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
I first read about Opportunity in an article written by Carly Fiorina about her One Woman Initiative, which works in partnership with Opportunity. I was driven to get involved with this nonprofit because of its faith-based mission, sustainable operating model, army of advocates and contrast from my day-to-day professional work. Through my involvement, I've met bright and passionate professionals of every stripe, heard incredible stories of YAO's impact on impoverished lives around the world, and been convinced of microfinance's power as a solution to global poverty. As promoter of YAO-New York, I support the board's Outreach Committee in gaining visibility and interest in our chapter and organization.
