Commitment to

“I’ve had the privilege of being raised in a family that believes one’s gender does not limit one’s potential or impact. Multiple trips to visit family in India taught me that access to water limits one’s potential and that too often it is women whom are affected. I was drawn to because of their experience transforming lives with safe water and because of their success in breaking down the barriers that limit one’s potential and impact. I am honored for the opportunity to help transform lives.”
