WaterStep is growing! Last month, we welcomed Kellie Moore to the team. We recently got to know her and her role at WaterStep a little better:
1.What is your current role with WaterStep?
Director of Strategic Initiatives.
- How did you initially get involved with WaterStep?
I first got involved with safe water projects in Haiti after the earthquake and experienced first-hand the powerful change and hope that access to safe water brings. I began volunteering with WaterStep several years ago, helping with various projects and grants. I think I just “knew” that this was the place I wanted to be invested in one way or the other.
- What do you like most about WaterStep’s mission?
I truly believe that all people are more alike than different across the world and want basically the same things. I also know that we ALL have the basic right to hope, health, and life through safe water. This simple, yet powerful belief is the core of WaterStep nation, and I am proud to be a part of this.
- What do you hope to see WaterStep accomplish in the next 2-5 years?
WaterStep has built a tremendous arsenal of innovative tools and a robust network of volunteers across the world who are impacting millions of people with safe water. This impact is beginning to receive international recognition, and I expect that the next few years will see WaterStep partnering with major international organizations to increase access to safe water, disinfectant, and sanitation across the globe. I would like to see WaterStep providing access to safe water to over 100M people in the next five years – improving health and providing hope.
- Will you tell us a bit about your family?
My husband and I live in Louisville and collectively have five adult children and two twin grandsons.
- If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Well, I love to travel, so just about anywhere and everywhere. My favorite destination I have visited is Santorini, Greece!
Welcome to WaterStep Nation, Kellie!
