Charlotte is a trained lawyer in the UK where she worked in a city law firm prior to relocating to the US. After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree at Birmingham University, Charlotte completed her law degree and legal training, specialising in regulatory and commercial practice. It was her keen interest in pro bono work that led her to the field of social enterprise where she found her niche at Barakat Bundle – contributing to commercial operations and product development and conducting legal research into safety regulations.
With previous experience instigating a scheme in India to help children obtain retrospective birth certificates, Charlotte is passionate about social justice and the rights of young people. Her pro bono work has included drafting policies and strategies for an educational non-profit in Africa; acting for families of deaf children in the UK appealing local authority school placement decisions and mentoring immigrant women on running small businesses. This is Charlotte’s first venture into the health sector, where as a new mother she is inspired to address challenges faced by other women around the world looking after their newborns.
