Guest Profile

Mavis Bauman M.s.

The desire to build understanding across all kinds of people, cultures, and lines of difference has powered Mavis’ passion since her early 20’s.

Raised in a large family in a farm town in Nebraska, Mavis graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and then did her master’s coursework at The Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy in Medford, MA. Her areas of concentration were international business relations, international finance, and private international law. After graduate school, she served as a writer and fundraiser with the United Nations Association in Washington, D.C. After eight years in compliance at J.P. Morgan in New York City, Mavis left corporate life and built a freelance writing and photography business in northern New Jersey.

In addition, Mavis formed and now serves as the president and visionary for SEED A Better Life, a non-profit that supplies food, medical care, and tuition for orphans and vulnerable children and young adults in Rwanda, Africa. She was struck with a passion for Rwandan genocide survivors during her first visit there in 2008.
