Morton Capital Management Recognizes Santa Barbara's Teri Gabrielsen, First Honoree in "Women Making Waves" Campaign

Santa Barbara is unique in many ways but most significantly in its fervent desire to give back.

Morton Capital Management, recognized by Barron’s Magazine as a Top 100 Independent Financial Advisor,* announced today a year-long campaign recognizing Santa Barbara women who are making a dramatic social impact locally and abroad. Beginning in May 2015, six Santa Barbara women will be recognized who demonstrate the power of compassion, innovation and collaboration to create new models for improved social outcomes. The campaign will offer inspiration to women pursuing their own dreams.

Morton Capital Management has partnered with Santa Barbara Life & Style Magazine, luxury Montecito boutique Allora by Laura, and Shine Blow Dry Bar to produce bimonthly fashion spreads over the course of a 12-month period that profile Santa Barbara women “making waves” around the world and locally. Representing a diversity of backgrounds and experience, each woman featured will embody the courageous pursuit of challenging the status quo and creating positive social change. Professionally photographed and styled, images will reflect each woman’s individualism and personal sense of style. Stories accompanying the features will describe the honorees’ journeys, offering insights that others might use in their own philanthropic, creative and business pursuits.

“Santa Barbara is unique in many ways but most significantly in its fervent desire to give back,” said Morton Capital Management Co-President Meghan Pinchuk. “As a woman working to grow my own firm and company culture, I believe it’s important to celebrate one another’s successes. There is much we can learn from each other, particularly from those who can think outside of the box to improve our community and world.”

Morton Capital has announced its first honoree, Teri Gabrielsen, in a separate release. Teri is a former educator, wife, mother, and founder of Africa Schools of Kenya (ASK). During a life-changing trip to Africa over 15 years ago, Teri decided to dedicate her time and resources to help the Maasai children in Esiteti, Kenya, obtain access to formal education. She realized that through the power of knowledge, the Maasai people gained a better understanding of health and human rights, allowing them to better their entire community.
