I am a social sector consultant that focuses on global health and global development issues. I'm originally from Missouri, but currently live in Washington DC. I love to travel and meet new people!
I have worked with nonprofits, corporations, foundations, and government agencies to address a range of social issues, including domestic and international education reform, global health, impact investing, and juvenile justice reform. Most recently, I have worked to develop the strategy for a major corporate philanthropic program to address multi-drug resistant tuberculosis in the developing world. I have worked on a key collective impact strategic planning effort, developing a shared vision and strategic priorities for a diverse group of stakeholders across the New York juvenile justice system and leading efforts to create a more robust structure for data sharing across the system. Other clients include the Kellogg Foundation, The California Endowment, SAP, and the Minnesota Department of Health. I am an active member of FSG’s Global Development impact area.
Prior to FSG, my work focused on international development and education reform. I consulted for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, investigating issues of urban poverty and youth unemployment in Africa. I have worked in primary education reform in southern India, assessing the efforts of grassroots NGOs working in government primary schools. I have also worked to provide business support for start-up social enterprises, in London at the Young Foundation and in Chicago, with the Global Engagement Summit.
I hold an MSc in Development Management from the London School of Economics and a B.A. in Political Science and International Studies with honors, from Northwestern University.
