I specialize in measurement, evaluation, research and learning in the health and economic development sectors. As a versatile and creative problem solver, my development career is built on a deep appreciation for multidisciplinary collaboration. I believe if we are serious about solving the world’s biggest challenges and meeting the Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all – we need to break down institutional and sectoral barriers. We need to work smarter together, reducing duplication of effort and building stronger capacity within local institutions.
My current work on the USAID Preparedness and Response project focuses on building national governments' capacity to prepare and respond to disease events. Using a One Health approach, our goal is to promote collaboration among many disciplines —working locally, nationally, and globally—to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment.
