Finance Director & Principal Consultant
Background: I am currently focussed on supporting Africa’s plans to boost agriculture and improve food security. My work enables strong and coordinated engagement by development partners, the private sector and Non-State Actors.
With a degree in International Development and an MPhil in Social Change, I have also worked on issues as varied as HIV/AIDS in Zambia, reconciliation in Northern Ireland and Sri Lanka, education in Malawi, humanitarian response in Pakistan, ethical consumerism and sustainable enterprise, and racism in the USA. The consistent theme through all this work is asking how to unlock the capacity of people and organisations to drive positive change.
I am the Chairperson, Finance Director and one of the founders of Wasafiri Consulting. I was Executive Director until 2015.
