Polly grew up in the Pacific Northwest and moved to the Bay Area from Salem, OR in September 2012. She just finished up a year of service as an AmeriCorps VISTA working with high school-aged youth trying to integrate into higher education. She is excited to get going as the new Community Education intern; particularly the opportunity to interact with students who are pumped up about microfinance! Having been a Kiva lender for several years, and spreading the love by giving loans as gifts, it is so fun to now be a part of the team, working to inspire more young lenders. Polly studied Political Science, Spanish and Social Justice at the University of Portland and graduated in 2011. She loves to travel, read, play would-you-rather, and dance!
