David Edson
Strategic Partnership Director
Project Description

As Strategic Partnership Director at Children’s HopeChest, David’s work includes telling people about how their communities can partner with the awesome children and CarePoints we serve. He started college in Prague at University of New York Prague. Then he shifted course and went to the National Outdoor Leadership School in the Patagonia region of Chile, where he completed an outdoor education/wilderness course and got certified as a Wilderness EMT/Search and Rescue Specialist from the Wilderness Medical Institute. After that he studied Business Management at Missouri State University. Now David works in the world of building partnerships, connecting with people who have a passion for alleviating global poverty. If David was stuck on a deserted island, he would bring the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but he would probably figure out how to be sought and rescued pretty quickly.
