Kerry Newton joined the 1% for the Planet team in January of 2012 with a focus on maintaining brand integrity. With her newest role as Membership Manager, Kerry also focuses on building relationships with existing businesses and nonprofits, and works to engage new businesses to join 1% for the Planet.
Prior to joining 1%ftP, Kerry received her Bachelor of Science from the University of California, Davis. She’d always wanted to attend veterinary school but upon completing her undergrad, was presented with an opportunity to join a prestigious equine hospital back in her native New Hampshire which she couldn’t refuse. With her passion becoming her career, it was time to explore another passion — marine conservation. While working on a boat tracking whales, she discovered 1% for the Planet and was inspired by 1%ftP’s role in arranging partnerships with businesses to create environmental change.
After relocating to Vermont from the New Hampshire seacoast (yes, the whopping 13 miles of it), she can (still) be found playing in a body of water, bombing through the trails on her Warmblood gelding, and spending time with family.
