Social Legends is Growing with our Clients in Mind

Social Legends is growing! Last year, as we evaluated our strategic priorities, client needs, and potential projects, it became clear that we had an opportunity to increase our capacity to better serve our clients. As we imagined the ideal person joining our team, we knew we wanted someone with passion, drive, and broad nonprofit experience. We found that in Annie Cornett, who joined our team in January. Our team strategically serves clients by aligning and assigning projects with each of our unique gifts in mind.

As a professional in the nonprofit sector, Annie continually found herself wondering how she could amplify her impact and enhance the lives of those in her community. Expanding her own reach and touching more lives became the driving force behind her professional career choice and led her to understand the significant impact potential that comes with helping others achieve their own mission-driven initiatives. Driven by this passion, and inspired by the challenges it presents Annie joined the Social Legends team in January of 2016 with the desire to help professionals and organizations find significant and relevant ways to make an impact in their own missions and communities.

Annie’s blend of business and nonprofit experience provides added value to clients. She has been involved in the nonprofit sector since 2005 serving in roles ranging from volunteer to staff member and consultant. She is known for her expertise in direct service, program development, program implementation, special event management, grant writing, fundraising, and corporate philanthropy. Currently, she serves as a volunteer with the Indiana University School of Public Health Alumni Board.

As a volunteer side-walker and certified riding instructor, Annie developed a deep love of horses and their ability to heal. She adopted her own horse, Bubba, off the track and competes in Dressage.

Having received her Master of Science from Indiana University in Recreational Therapy, Annie’s early attention towards supporting individuals with disabilities and improving their quality of life continues to inspire her daily work. Her clients have taught her that no challenge is insurmountable when the passion and desire to succeed is ingrained in one’s heart.

It is with these ideals and unique gifts that Annie aspires to live her life as a Social Legend while empowering others to do the same.

Please join me in formally welcoming Annie to the team!
