Volunteer Spotlight: Meet Keri!

Keri Schneider

EDUCATION/BACKGROUND

I have my undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After working for a number of years in the public sector, I moved to Minneapolis for graduate school, and recently graduated with a Master’s degree from Humphrey School of Public Affairs.

AREA OF WORK

I am the front desk coordinator. I help with logistical and administrative tasks for the office and also provide support to special projects.

LOCATION

WellShare International HQ, Minneapolis, MN

INTERESTING FACT

Before starting grad school, I spent a year and a half abroad house sitting and ran a small hotel on a Nicaraguan island. It gave me an opportunity to live in some beautiful locations, explore the world, and meet so many great people.

WHY WELLSHARE?

I’m interested in international development and wanted to get an insider view of a nonprofit organization. The work WellShare does aligns with my personal values, and I was pleased to have an opportunity to contribute my skills while also learning about the operational side of running a nonprofit.

YOUR FAVORITE PART

The staff! Everyone here has been so welcoming and friendly. The great work environment makes my time here even more rewarding.
