Women's human rights and empowerment is something I am very passionate about. I believe that only when women and girls are empowered, will there be true economic development, peace and prosperity globally. I used to work in the eastern D.R. Congo, where violence against women and girls is widespread, and I continue to support entities working to ensure their safety, economic empowerment and health.
I'm the Managing Associate for Social Enterprise and Business Planning at JVA Consulting. My background is in International Economic Development, and I have worked and lived around the world.
