Role: Senior Humanitarian Advisor

Team: Humanitarian team


I am CARE UK’s Senior Humanitarian Advisor on Gender and Protection. I have recently returned from Uganda where I was meeting with South Sudanese refugees to assess the impact of the humanitarian response. At CARE, I also work on Syria and Yemen, and provide technical advice on gender and protection to different country teams. Having previously worked in CARE’s policy and advocacy team, I also work on cash and women’s economic empowerment in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.

Prior to joining CARE, I worked in programming for the United Nations and NGOs, such as running a protection response in Northern Iraq within the combined Syrian refugee and Islamic State crisis. Areas I’ve covered include: gang violence with the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti, the reintegration of armed groups including the FARC and paramilitaries in Colombia, and reconciliation among ethnic groups in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

I have written for The Independent, Huffington Post and Thomson Reuters.
