As Chief Purpose Officer at Accelerating Social Good, Kerry specializes in collaborating with mental health and suicide prevention nonprofits, social enterprises and CSR initiatives to extend their reach and wrap, enabling them to have a greater impact on those they serve so those who need mental health care get it. Get it sooner. And, get it where and when they need it.
As a savvy strategist and strong empathic leader, Kerry has been getting it done for 25 years, driving innovative solutions to a wide range of business challenges across multiple industries in for-profit and not-for-profit sectors including IT, marketing and communications, fundraising and mental health care.
Kerry is recognized by her peers as a hands-on, thought-leader and change agent in mental health and suicide prevention. She provides nonprofits strategic marketing and fundraising consulting as well as Agile leadership development and Scrum coaching to unleash disruptive innovative solutions. Kerry guides social entrepreneurs with strategic advice on key business and marketing decisions and secures equity investments and corporate sponsorships.

She is a heartfelt believer in Nelson Henderson's quote, "the true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit." And, derives a great deal of personal happiness from giving back and has always done so throughout her life. She took a time out to address a glaring social injustice — inequitable access to mental health care and an alarming increase in suicide rates — taking her case all the way to the FDA.
Kerry is a certified as a Scrum Master by the Scrum Alliance. She holds a Master's Degree from Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government in Public Policy with an Emphasis in Human Services, Labor and Education and a Bachelors of Arts in Economics with Distinction from the University of California, San Diego.

Allié and Jack are not only elevating awareness about so many important social causes but are also enabling nonprofits to raise mission-critical funds so they can accelerate their social impact at such a critical time. I’m also honored that they have chosen to partner with our public benefit company in our cause -- suicide prevention.
