I have 15 years’ experience working with humanitarian and development issues. In 2016, I provided technical expertise on women’s economic empowerment and entrepreneurship on behalf of CARE Norway and CARE’s global women’s economic empowerment team. I first joined CARE in 2005 in the Indian Ocean Tsunami Response Programme in Indonesia. I’ve managed a rural development programme for CARE in Timor-Leste, and responded to numerous emergencies and development challenges throughout Asia and the world with various organisations.
I am intrigued by people’s ability to survive, absorb and adapt to the most challenging environments. I am dedicated to helping to find the key to unlock our will and capacity to stop growing inequality and environmental destruction. In 2017, I will move into work on poverty reduction, gender equality and social inclusion within the shift towards a greener economy.
