Executive Director, Only7Seconds
Luke Wall is the Executive Director at Only7Seconds, a non-profit with a vision of a world without loneliness. Luke has a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Master’s in business. After working in the corporate world, Luke transitioned to work at Special Olympics, where he saw firsthand the effects of social isolation in the intellectual disability community, especially during COVID.
In 2018, after a family member experienced social isolation that led to depression, Luke’s mother started Only7Seconds. In 2020, after two additional local youth suicides, Luke began leading Only7Seconds. Since then, Luke has developed a passion for tackling loneliness and its harmful effects on whole person health. Only7Seconds has since been creating programming to address loneliness for youth, communities, and individuals.
