I would describe myself as a highly positive, innovative and entrepreneurial individual who thrives on consistently raising the standards of partnerships and sustainable development, providing solutions to critical social protection challenges such as economic empowerment and access to finance. With over 13 years of history of advancing equity, diversity and inclusion, I constantly seek new opportunities to marshal resources from both private and public-sector operators and actors. The projects I engage in contribute to achieving sustainable development goals wrapped around employment creation and livelihood enhancement for people and communities.

I have proven expertise in project management for:

My hands-on working style celebrates creativity, resourcefulness and innovation, combined with a firm commitment to always putting my best foot forward to deliver outstanding service to my project beneficiaries and clients. I am free-spirited, fun and love to travel the world, so the world does not escape her.


Our voices are only as loud as the partnerships we form.
