Bio

Megan Skaggs

Graduate Associate

Though raised in a small town in Kentucky for much of adolescence, Megan’s formative years were spent abroad – from Sri Lanka to Tunisia. This early interest in culture followed her to her collegiate years. In 2014, she spent six weeks completing an internship at an orphanage in Guatemala, where she became intrigued by the role NGOs and nonprofits play in improving educational opportunities for children in impoverished regions. Upon her graduation from Western Kentucky University with B.A.s in both International Affairs and English in 2016, she spent a year as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Esquipulas, Guatemala, where she worked with the Access English Microscholarship Program. Her time there further solidified her desire to explore ways to improve access to quality education for those most marginalized via governmental and non-governmental programs.
At Vanderbilt, she is pursuing her M.A. in Latin American Studies and her M.Ed. in International Education Policy and Management, and works as the Graduate Associate for the Turner Family Center for Social Ventures. Having served in Guatemala and conducted research in myriad countries in Central America, she is interested in how businesses can balance creating a sustainable social impact with a successful business model, and the role that education has as a means to alleviate the poverty pervasive in many such areas. Through her experiences, she has recognized the impact that a successful social venture could have on communities not only in Central America, but across the world.

Niccolo Roditti

Graduate Associate

M.Ed. Community Development and Action '22

Bio

Niccolo Roditti

Graduate Associate

Niccolo’s approach to any project or job is centered around the notion that mutual care is violence prevention. This stems from early interest in violence free living while studying abroad in Paris and supporting refugee housing and food distribution to their most recent work at a domestic violence/sexual assault organization in Durham, NC as a Rape Prevention Education Coordinator. They believe that any action can have unintended impacts on individuals, communities, and systems. Acknowledging what power dynamics are at play and how does that influence action within any system or organization is critical to sustainable changes and outcomes. Niccolo has worked within various coalitions and non profits tackling issues such as gender variance, systemic racism, homelessness, immigration and liberation education.

Niccolo is an incoming M.Ed. Community Development & Action student, as well as, their first semester serving as a Graduate Associate for the Turner Family Center for Social Ventures – with a focus on the Center’s Social Impact Certificate. Having completed an international social enterprise forum through Stanford, they’re excited to bring an intersectional lens on how businesses are analyzing their impact on communities and how to be apart of inclusive social change. The concept of a social venture and their framework used to invest in people through the alleviation of an obstacle or barrier is groundbreaking.

Bio

Esther Yoon

Undergraduate Associate

Esther is part of the Class of 2021 at Vanderbilt University studying Human Organizational Development and Asian Studies with a minor in Engineering Management. She takes great pride in beginning her life’s journey in the Grand Canyon State, Arizona, to which she also calls home, though currently residing in Dallas, Texas. Upon entering college, Esther, like many other incoming students, struggled to find her true interests and passions, but after hearing about the existence of a market-driven enterprise fueled by thoughts of social impact, Esther’s own social impact passions and curiosity were piqued. It wasn’t long until she found herself quickly immersed with the center as just a first-year. She became the Undergraduate Associate at the TFC aiding Megan with various works ranging from creative projects including video creation to operations assistance such as CRM management. On top of her involvement with the TFC, Esther boasts a wide range of activities as well some of which include the Vanderbilt Student Government, Women in Biztech, Circle K, and Chi Omega. Through these assortments of activities, she grew a passion for serving others’ needs as well as making real change in the world. The TFC has been a large part of her maturation during this growth helping her channel her ambitions through the lens of social impact. Her story and testimony stand as a success story for the work of the TFC and their mission.

Jax Collins

Program Development Specialist

A recent graduate of Vanderbilt Divinity School, Jax Collins currently serves as Program Development Specialist for the TFC. Jax hails from the small town of King George on the east coast of Virginia. Attending the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia, she studied sociology and consequently developed a strong interest in institutions, power, and religion. Some of her most memorable experiences as a Wahoo were her time working with the University’s football team as an equipment manager and as an intern for a preservation team of a local historic African American cemetery. While indirectly related, these experiences fostered her interest in the power of storytelling– both individual and communal

Continuing her educational career, Jax moved to Nashville, TN in August of 2018 to begin her Master of Theological Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School. As a part of her field education for her degree program, she partnered with the TFC and Owen to design a student-athlete leadership development program. When the world shifted in March of 2020, Jax leaned into the ambiguity of this space and curated a professional development program specifically for Vanderbilt student-athletes whose summer internships were cancelled due to COVID-19.

Currently, Jax is reimagining Project Pyramid, an Owen course which lays a 15-year foundation for the Turner Family Center for Social Ventures. Jax is using her student-centered expertise as the course’s underpinning to refresh the curriculum and course objectives. Jax is passionate about creating intentional spaces where all voices are heard, welcomed, and respected. Whether that be through higher education, athletics, or local organizing spaces, Jax sees it as her purpose to continue in the work of being with others.

MBA '21

Bio

Hannah Turnbull

Executive Board Chair

I grew up on a farm in Kentucky and have always loved learning about how things work. The first time I attended Vanderbilt University, I obtained a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Mechanical Engineering, with minors in Engineering Management and Studio Art. I applied that knowledge as a design engineer with an architectural engineering firm in San Francisco, CA, and most recently as a manufacturing engineer with Lockheed Martin outside of Lexington, KY. The differences in those two experiences created a deep curiosity about why the two regions in which I had worked looked so different. Why did capital go to San Francisco instead of Columbus, OH or Charlotte, NC? How could the Bay Area be so wealthy, but also host a humanitarian crisis over housing? What were the real and root reasons behind major corporations abandoning states like Kentucky, especially in rural areas, and why hadn’t anything replaced them? These questions led me back to Vanderbilt and to the Owen Graduate School of Management where I am pursuing an MBA and aim to understand the decisions businesses make regarding their clients, bottom-line, innovation, and future, as well as the role of business in identifying and solving social problems.

Over my last year at Vanderbilt and through my experiences with the Turner Family Center, I have learned more about social impact, enterprise, and ventures than I learned in the preceding 25 years. I jumped right in when school started and involved myself with the TFC in multiple ways – committee member, Emerging Impact Leaders Fellow, Board Fellow, and Board Member of Net Impact. The TFC has given me the opportunity for hands-on application of what I have learned in school, while being an avenue to learn skills that aren’t gained in the classroom – how to motivate people, how to lead without power, how to catalyze change, how to effectively delegate. Additionally, I’ve been able to explore the spectrum of social impact careers and see the diversity of the space and its participants.

I’m grateful and excited to take on the role of Executive Board Chair and to think strategically about the future of the TFC and our impact on our local and broader communities.

Daniel Cortez

Academics & Experiences co-chair

I am an MBA student at Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management concentrating in human & organizational performance. Prior to business school, I worked as a human capital consultant at Deloitte Consulting. I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas which makes me a proud Texan and lifelong Spurs basketball fan. In 2015, I graduated from Rice University with a bachelor’s degree in Latin American Studies and Policy Studies.

The TFC was a big reason why I decided to attend Vanderbilt. I have a strong interest in public service and social impact. During undergrad, I was involved in public policy research and worked for several non-profits focused on education in refugee and economically disadvantaged communities. My capstone project focused on promoting civic engagement among Houston’s Hispanic youth. Being a member of the TFC has given me the opportunity to connect with a social mission and grow as a leader. It has also helped me engage with a community of likeminded individuals working towards the social good.

As the Academics and Experiences co-chair, I look forward to helping the TFC continue to put forth programming that connects students with its mission. I am also excited to launch the TFC’s new Social Impact Certificate.

Harry Smith

Academics & Experiences co-chair

I am an MBA student at the Owen Graduate School of Management concentrating in Human & Organizational Performance and Strategy. I grew up in Cary, NC, and after graduating from the University of South Carolina with degrees in Finance and Management, spent three years in finance roles in the banking and automotive financing industries. I came back to school to pursue my MBA to transition into a career in human resources to combine my quantitative analytical background with a passion for empowering others to reach their potential.

 

That passion for empowering others was sparked by the Shelton Leadership Challenge, a youth leadership development camp through NC State University that was founded by former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Hugh Shelton. I spent two summers in high school as a student at Shelton, followed by four more as a mentor, and more recently have helped as a mentor at the National Leadership Academy based out of Denver, CO. My experience in youth leadership development continuously shows me the value of providing individuals with the foundational tools to succeed while empowering them to build on that success.

 

The Turner Family Center’s mission centered on empowerment by using market-driven forces to alleviate poverty resonated with me immediately after arriving at Owen, as well as the opportunity to tackle complex problems with absolutely incredible students from across Vanderbilt’s graduate schools. This past year, I was able to help deliver TFC programming as a part of the Academics and Experiences committee and spent a week in Mexico City partnering with social impact startups through Project Pyramid. I will be Co-Chairing Academics and Experiences this year with my good friend Daniel Cortez as we roll out the Social Impact Certificate.

In this pilot program, Katie discovered her passion for developing people and supporting organizational growth.
Katie’s first interaction with the Turner Family’s outreach was as a Turner Fellow at the Martha O’Bryan Center through her high school Franklin Road Academy. Coming to Vanderbilt for graduate school, Katie knew she wanted to become a part of the Turner Family Center as she explored her professional interests in human capital consulting and corporate social responsibility. Katie worked as a Team Lead for Project Pyramid in Spring 2020 and was able to travel to Guatemala with the TFC to learn more about goodwill efforts in the coffee industry. For 2020-2021, Katie will serve as the annual Social Ventures Summit Chair to create an experience in January 2021 to gather and inspire change-makers.

Masters of Public Health '21

Bio

Lauren Mitchell

Special Projects and Consulting Chair

I grew up about three hours away in a suburb of Memphis, Tennessee. For my undergraduate degree, I was fortunate enough to go to my dream school—Vanderbilt University. After I graduated from Vanderbilt with a dual degree in Medicine, Health, and Society and Religious Studies, I worked in a small medical coding audit consulting firm and later at Vanderbilt’s School of Medicine. Currently, I am pursing a Masters of Public Health, where I also serve as my cohort’s class representative.

Why public health? The health of one person affects the health of everyone else. Public health interacts with almost every arena of our lives, from the economy and the environment to business decisions and personal finance. There is no personal health without adequate public health.

Why TFC? Traditionally, most public health efforts have been massive, government-funded initiatives like vaccination drives and (more recently) social distancing. I find myself interested in how the private sector can come up with sustainable, market driven solutions to public health problems that might be difficult to tackle in the traditional ways.

Why Special Projects and Consulting? Public health and consulting have more in common than you may think. Both center around problem solving and innovation, and combining the two can lead to beautiful things.

If you are interested in either Special Projects or Social Enterprise Consulting, I look forward to working with you!

Sambit Kar

Project Pyramid Chair

I am an MBA student from India and have been very fortunate to experience a unique time in its history – the liberalization of the economy and the subsequent lifting of 300 million plus people out of poverty. Experiencing this gradual yet massive change in action has been the driving force behind shaping my values and perspectives that are centered around empowerment of people and communities

I graduated from IIT Madras in 2009 and worked as a management consultant helping some of  the world’s renowned companies manage their financial risk after the Global Financial Crisis. Quite opposite to the rest of the world, India was teeming with energy and economic activity at the time. Post 5 years of professional and financial success, I decided to take the entrepreneurial plunge and co-founded Sixty Plus – a social enterprise focused on people above the age of 60. Today the organization has 1000+ members and is focused helping them make a smooth transition from full time employment to retirement while remaining engaged with society.

Pursuing an MBA at Owen and being a member of the Turner Family Centre has been one of the most diverse and enriching experiences of my life. I aspire to build on the legacy and accomplishments of Project Pyramid and the Turner Family Centre by working with some of the brightest and most motivated people to help solve problems of poverty and access around the world.

100% Owen Chair

I have had a passion to make an impact in the healthcare industry since my exposure to extreme poverty and a lack of access to healthcare on a mission trip to Guatemala in 2010. This experience sparked my desire to help those less fortunate and drove me to pursue a career in healthcare. After obtaining my undergraduate degrees in Healthcare Studies and Business Administration as well as four years in Federal health consulting, I decided to expand my education so that I would be able to make a direct impact on the lives of others. I am currently working toward my MBA in Healthcare, Strategy, and Operations at Owen Graduate School of Management.

Upon joining the Owen community, I was drawn to 100% Owen’s mission to enrich the Owen experience for students, faculty, and staff through the promotion and organization of community service activities and fundraising opportunities in Nashville. As the President of 100% Owen, it is my personal goal to ensure that all members of the Owen community have the opportunity to leverage their personal strengths and give back to our community in a way that is meaningful to them.

Caitlin Chin

Campus and Community Engagement Co-Chair

I am an MBA student at Vanderbilt University Owen Graduate School of Management concentrating in Healthcare and Operations & Analytics. Prior to moving to Nashville, I spent the last 12 years in Philadelphia. I studied Health and Societies at the University of Pennsylvania. During my junior year, I started volunteering with a non-profit organization called Back on My Feet, which helps people who are experiencing homelessness through running. I absolutely loved the empowerment that our members felt being a part of a team while running through the streets of Philly. I realized that things as simple as human connection and physical confidence have the ability to manifest confidence in other areas of a person’s life. I took a full-time job with Back on My Feet after graduation and then went back to Penn for my Masters in Social Work.

During my MSW program, I interned in a prison and a hospital, which is where I spent the next five years of my career working as a medical social worker. It was during this time that I realized that there is often a disconnect between the work that is done on the ground level and the decisions that are made at a management level. For me, the TFC is the perfect bridge between these two worlds, connecting business-minded people to social impact initiatives. I’m excited to use this opportunity to learn more about the organizations within the city and to connect with the Nashville community.
