Commitment to Water.org

“Having traveled extensively worldwide, I’ve been able to witness first-hand the impact that lack of access to safe water and basic sanitation has on people and communities. Too often we take access to clean water for granted, but the fact is children continue dying at high rates as a result of water-related diseases. I admire the unique approach Water.org takes to address this critical issue, and am thrilled and honored to join their team to achieve the goal of enabling everyone to have clean water and sanitation - in my lifetime.”
