About me

Hello everyone! I am excited to join the Wikimedia Movement. Previously I worked at Thoughtworks as a Principal Consultant advising both nonprofit and for-profit clients on how to define, structure and build the organizational and technical capabilities needed to implement modern digital strategies. I have spent the bulk of my career at Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF). I began my work with MSF in 2006 in Sierra Leone, having previously worked in marketing and strategy for technology companies, start-ups, and the Fritz Institute. In the years that followed, Kassia worked extensively in a wide range of projects with MSF and as Country Director in Guatemala, South Sudan, and Syria. I am currently an elected member of MSF USA’s Board of Directors.

I currently live in San Francisco. Salsa dancing is my favorite way to relax and I am an avid foodie.

My work

Excited to join the community resources team and learning about the Wikimedia Movement and Community. Aligning the grant making strategy to the vision of Knowledge Equity is a priority this year.
