Design // Learn // Lead

As a Public Health consultant with a decade of experience in community-based and global programs, I provide a range of support to nonprofits to further their mission and impact including organizational development, program design and management, grant writing, and impact evaluation. I am skilled at working with 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.
