Michelle Nunn took over the reins of CARE USA in 2015. Founder of an NGO Hand on Atlanta, which later became Points of Light, Michelle had seen her small initiative grow into an operation that currently operates in dozens of countries across the world.
The 50-year old mother of two graduated from University of Virginia in History and later went to the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. She ran for the US Senate from Georgia losing a race that was closely watched in the United States. Her father Sam Nunn had been a four time senator and served as chair of that Armed Forces Committee. Michelle’s mother worked for the State Department and spent some time with the CIA too before becoming a stay at home housewife.
