Kelowna native wants wealthy to give to women

A former Kelowna resident wants more wealthy women to give to less wealthy women.

Jacki Hoffman-Zehner was born and raised in Kelowna's Rutland neighbourhood and when she left the Okanagan, she became the youngest female trader to be made partner at Goldman Sachs.

Then, she had enough of the high paced world of finance and decided to follow her passion for helping women.

She is now the CEO of the non-profit organization "Women Moving Millions", and her work has garnered her The Global Fund for Women's Philanthropy award.
