Bio

About Me

I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I am a gardener and avid runner. I believe in optimism and leaps of faith and adventure. I believe that whatever you set your mind to, you can do.

I am also an international community development professional with over ten years of experience, specializing in women's empowerment and technology. My field work includes stints in Afghanistan, Myanmar, India and Thailand.

I am passionate about catalyzing meaningful change in the world to enable every person to achieve their full human potential. I believe this can be achieved by scaling local solutions, engaging grassroots women and girl leaders, capitalizing on technology and infusing a culture of innovation within traditional development models. Critical to this equation is building meaningful partnerships between government, private sector, NGOs, foundations, civil society organization and global decision makers to leverage the knowledge, skills and resources needed to achieve transformative scale and impact.

My Vision

A world where every woman and girl is empowered with the tools and knowledge to follow her dreams
