A local entrepreneur is one of 36 Virginia residents selected to participate in a 10-month leadership program.
Natalie Miller-Moore, founder and CEO of Moore Than Words Health Communications, was chosen from a pool of 85 applicants to be a member of the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership at the University of Virginia’s Political Leaders Program Class of 2016.
The program is designed for residents who wish to become more active in public service as either political or community leaders.
“These individuals from throughout the state are strong representatives of both major political parties, as well as independents, and are leaders in their communities,” said Bob Gibson, the Sorensen Institute’s executive director. “They will spend time together discussing public policy issues and ethics and how to restore more trust, civility and respect to Virginia’s political life.”
Miller-Moore, who also co-founded of the creative co-working space Work Nimbly, is a 2013 graduate of the LEAD Historic Triangle program, a Board of Trustees member for the Williamsburg Regional Library, and a volunteer with Beyond Boobs! and Hands Together Historic Triangle.
The first meeting is slated for the weekend of March 17 in Williamsburg, Miller-Moore’s hometown. The classes, which occur once a month through December, will rotate to different regions throughout the state.
