Team: Programmes and Policy team

Profile:

After 10+ years working in the development and humanitarian sector I remain passionate about putting disaster and conflict-affected people at the heart of humanitarian response, security and disaster risk governance.

I really enjoy what I do: the creative problem-solving, the people management, the relationship brokering both within and between agencies, government, communities, UN, media, etc. I enjoy the community-engagement and working together to deliver effective programmes on the ground. The true policy wonk within relishes researching technical and political innovations across the sector, and my West Wing side revels in developing and delivering the political strategies for change.

I am inspired by creative arts, continue to be involved in writing and film projects, and am honored to be on the board of Ice & Fire www.iceandfire.co.uk exploring human rights through theatre and performance.
