Elizabeth Atkins joins New Kind
It is with great pleasure that I announce that Elizabeth Atkins has joined New Kind as Relationship Manager. She is a recent graduate from American University in Washington, DC with a degree in International Economics and International Studies.
Elizabeth brings a very unique perspective to New Kind. In high school, she was a spirited debater, sparking her interest in international affairs and economics. While working for a non-profit in Colorado founded by an “entrepreneurial philanthropist” she completed extensive research in corporate self-regulation and the business costs of piracy in Somalia.
While in Latin America, she completed research examining the effects of different economic and political models on the region’s history and people. In Chile, she worked with a Chilean non-profit on gender issues. And, she also worked on Capitol Hill as an aide to Congressman Cao from Louisiana during the time while Congress was considering major health care revisions.
The most interesting thing about Elizabeth is not “what she did”, but rather the fact that she did all of these things before she was 22 years old. She has covered a lot of territory in a short period of time.
So, welcome to New Kind, Elizabeth! We look forward to your ideas and contributions to the success of our clients and New Kind.
