Originally from the United States (Seattle), I have lived in Sweden since 2010 for graduate school. Prior to this, I worked with five NGO's in four countries. Activities ranged from designing, facilitating and coordinating HIV/Reproductive Health education in Guyana to writing an impact evaluation tool-kit and developing metrics for empowerment programs in rural China.
