I have a career in both the development and humanitarian sectors spanning over 19 years. I’ve worked in various capacities in programme management and I am seasoned in capacity strengthening, financial management, facilitation, social and organisational development. Notably I have managed a programme on Organisational Strengthening and Behaviour change that was implemented with key East African bodies of the East Africa Commission; Lake Victoria Basin; the International Universities of East Africa and Lake Victoria Fisheries Organisation. I have also been the HLA lead for the East and Southern Africa Region setting the capacity strengthening agenda with a needs-based lens.
In my role as the Head of Regional Centres I am passionate about embedding the HLA strategic vision in partnership with other key stakeholders within the Regions ensuring that a network of skilled, local humanitarians are available to drive quality responses and save lives.
With a background in Psychology and Leadership, I am keen on the welfare and wellbeing of staff members, teammates, partners and among those within my different spheres of influence.
One thing to know
My main mantra is an attitude of gratitude. There are lovely flowers hidden even in the mundane
