Kaitlyn Marie Sciarrino
Kaitlyn Marie Sciarrino is the founder and Executive Director of Kindheartedly. At 15 years old, she launched Kindheartedly after participating in a year long entrepreneurship class. Many other students were looking at for-profit ventures, but she was so moved by the girls that she met at Maryvale Orphanage, that she decided that she needed to do something different. She began to launch a non-profit organization that would assist girls in foster care homes and orphanages, and that's how Kindheartedly was born.
