Board of Directors Philosophy
We believe the key to running a successful non-profit organization is having a significant amount of diversity amongst board members. We are proud of the fact that our Board of Directors is comprised of a diverse group of thought leaders ranging in age from 18 to 72. As an organization striving to have a positive impact on the next generation of leaders, we believe it's critically important to include perspectives of leaders from multiple generations, genders, races, religions and various other group affiliations. Regardless of the unique life experiences each board member offers whether it be the experiences and perspectives of a CEO, entrepreneur, student, physician, attorney or professor, all of our board members do have one thing in common: they have a strong passion for social justice and equality! If you, too, have a strong passion for social justice & equality and believe love and education are the key to creating positive change and want to learn more about what it takes to serve on a Board of Directors for our 501c3 non-profit organization, please contact us!
Meet our Board of Directors
The Let's Do Better Movement began with a vision from two amazing women who wanted to have a positive impact on the world by teaching our next generation of leaders how to use love & education to serve their communities.
Emily is a co-founder of the Let’s Do Better Movement along with her sister, Danielle. In early 2020, Emily and Danielle found themselves disappointed that it took a pandemic to get people to actually start caring about each other. This planted a seed in their hearts to find a meaningful way to help share God’s love with others. A few months later after observing the nationwide outcry and impact over the highly publicized death of George Floyd and others, they came to the conclusion that America and all Americans have to do better. They wondered what the world would look like if every individual consciously decided to find something that they could do better at whether it was simply showing more kindness, patience, humility, forgiveness, acceptance or love. They believe that the best way to have a positive long-term impact on the world is to use love and education to open the hearts and minds of their peers - the next generation of leaders. Thus, the Let’s Do Better Movement was born.
Emily is currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA studying film production and screenwriting. She is also a member of LMU’s University Honors Program. One of the short films she wrote, What goes Unseen, was selected as “Best in Class” while studying at the University of Southern California prior to attending LMU and was shown at the USC Summer Film Festival. The film dramatized the impact of domestic violence on women.
She is also the founder of Wolflion Studios, a production company that produces short videos for small businesses, non-profits, and individuals.
