Education:
I attended the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, School of Nutrition and obtained a MA in Humanitarian Assistance. The course was designed for professionals to take time out of the field to review the work and learn from experiences of others.

My work focused on providing humanitarian assistance in emergency, transitional and developmental environments. I studied how other countries / agencies developed and implemented appropriate interventions in complex emergencies. I also took time to review the work I had done in the past and thought about what was successful,unsuccessful and how to improve interventions in he future.
