Hiya, my name is Shane Gaffney, and I live in nearby Westport, Connecticut. I grew up here and went to school at Staples High School. I am currently an undergraduate at the George Washington University and am going to graduate in the fall with a B.A. in Economics. After that, my goal is to get an MBA in either finance or accounting.
I am currently working on updating the business plan for LEAP, Inc, as well as modeling a microfinance program for a group of 9 women and 1 man in Uganda. One of my most memorable experiences here at LEAP was when we met with Moses, who was the point of contact for those 10 people in Uganda. He had actual on the ground experience that has really helped me understand how we at LEAP can best help entrepreneurs in Uganda. He communicated to me that a trusting partnership is the best way to move forward on combating poverty and promoting entrepreneurship.
While it may surprise you, I also have a life outside of LEAP! I am an avid runner and exerciser, and I particularly enjoy the teachings of Tony Horton, creator of the P-90X series. I also enjoy playing video games, mostly of the PC variety. In addition, I enjoy bulldogs and going to the beach with my girlfriend.
