Growing up in India, Geraldine developed a deep understanding of equality and the human/animal bond. From an early age, she’d care for stray dogs in her neighborhood – feeding them and taking them to a local shelter. Later, that compassion expanded using her degree in Sociology which took her to remote villages to study the caste system and women’s empowerment, and then volunteering with those experiencing homelessness. An M.B.A. from the Edinburgh Business School gave her even greater skills, but as a foreigner both in Scotland and then in the U.S., finding meaningful work was a serious challenge. Join us to hear about her journey across the globe and what inspired her to be courageous in the face of adversity.

Maddie's Fund Executive Leadership Team member Mary Ippoliti-Smith hosts the discussion and Q+A. Afterwards, continue the conversation with Geraldine on Maddie's Pet Forum:

The program will be recorded and made available on Maddie's University for continuing education credit for both CAWA and NACA.
