Relevant career highlights

I have 20 years of project management and social enterprise leadership experience in Africa and South Asia across multinational, SME, nonprofit and investment entities. My professional passion lies in leveraging private sector approaches and efficiencies to drive transformative social impact. Prior to joining GALVmed, I spent eight years with American multinational SC Johnson, leading the development and commercialisation of innovative social businesses that deliver low-cost malaria preventative products to rural consumers in sub-Saharan Africa.


Exploring beautiful Kenya (the country I’ve called home since 2010) with my family and friends. Cultivating a multicultural worldview in my two young children through exposure to a wide variety of people, cultures, traditions and foods.  Escaping my laptop for the great outdoors as much as possible.
