It started over sushi.

Carolyn Naseer and Erin Spencer, My Change Agent Co-Founders, both have personal missions that include having a positive, measurable impact on their communities…

As fate would have it in 2005, the two women moved to Raleigh-Durham at the same time based on the lure of a wondrous life in the Triangle. Little did they know what would happen when their lives crossed paths.

Having built their own vocations on creatively bridging gaps and disrupting expectations, Carolyn and Erin found themselves at a crossroads. They realized that they could continue applying their skills in-house, or use them to impact other industries and organizations.

After sharing many sushi lunches together, a partnership emerged—one that involves applying kindness and compassion to the business world.

The rest is history.
