Amy McLaren is CEO & Founder of LadyStrength, a growing community of driven, entrepreneurial women who aspire to make a positive difference in the world.
This busy mom of two splits her time between working with her LadyStrength community, growing an Airbnb business, and being a hands-on CEO of Village Impact, the charity she and her husband, Stu McLaren, founded more than a decade ago. Village Impact partners with communities in internally displaced people camps in Kenya to provide access to quality education and youth entrepreneurship opportunities. To date, Village Impact has built 14 schools that deliver education to over 8,000+ students on a daily basis.
