Happy Thursday Friends, Clients & Colleagues,
We hope our brief (3 minutes) #ThankfulThursday reflection finds you well.
This week, Marile zooms in on Kristi House CEO Amanda Altman in her debut feature article on SocialMiami | #TheLopezLens ( Go Deeper –> ).
In Miami’s philanthropic community, there are many great individuals supporting incredible charitable organizations but at the moment, I am applauding Kristi House CEO Amanda Altman.
Amanda not only advocates for several causes here in our South Florida community – yes, while unstoppably directing Kristi House she volunteers with the American Red Cross – but she’s also an accomplished litigator. To take her current position, she left a successful and lucrative career.
“I am an advocate for those that need me,” she says. “Kristi House is where I am needed to help fight for those who — like me — once couldn’t fight for themselves.”
Yes, a victim-turned-advocate made her as host of the Kristi House Silver Lining Gala’s theme — from trauma to triumph — all the more meaningful. The occasion also happened to mark the organization’s 25-year anniversary.
