About me

Hello WMF community, I am a passionate digital communications & engagement strategist. I believe that online movements can be used to trigger actions on the ground, and positively impact people’s lives. I had the chance to experience that firsthand in the past 26 years of my career. I organized and participated in communications activities in some 100 countries. I worked with 20 organizations and businesses, including the African Development Bank Group. I collaborated with international institutions such as the UN, the World Bank, and other MDBs. I grew up thriving to become a versatile leader. I have been building expertise in several fields including, IT, project management, web, social media, analytics, marketing, communications, community management, international development, and more. When I am not working, I like to invest my time in experiences and self-development; travel, movies, concerts, cooking, Disney parks, and more. I look forward to connecting with each of you in the coming weeks and months. I am interested in learning about your passion, your purpose, what you think should change as it relates to the Foundation's web channels, and how together we can make it happen. I am confident that we will meet and exceed expectations. Let's Connect!

My work

I am the Foundation's Web Manager. In this role, I am the lead strategist and advisor on and other websites owned and operated by the Foundation (excluding Wikis). I will help better leverage these channels to reach and engage key global audiences with the Foundation’s mission and work.
