I joined the Wikimedia movement back in early 2014, through a pro-bono consulting case done with the PEG program in Grantmaking, looking at historical program footprint and impact. I enjoyed working with the Foundation so much that I wanted to join in a wider capacity. While my professional background is in Strategy and Management consulting, my undergraduate and graduate degrees are in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research.
As strategist, my role generally includes defining strategic direction for different grants programs, and building out the corresponding structures and plans to implement that strategy.
