With extensive experience in the design, implementation, and evaluation of community-based maternal health programs in developing countries, I am skilled at working with local teams to create, implement and evaluate innovative programs, both in-person and from across the globe. I have designed programs for new interventions and developed systems for monitoring and evaluating these programs, both within programs and across countries. I am adept at communicating results to all levels of stakeholders, a systems thinker with a fine eye for detail, a self-starter and an effective collaborator, and a team player with strong management skills.
