Area of Expertise:
  • Administration, Management, Accounting/Finance, Procurement
Professional Experience:
From 2017 to 2019 I was Senior Advisor Finance and Operations and conducted short-term technical assistance and consultancies for John Snow, Inc., JSI Research & Training Institute and Chemonics International in Ethiopia, Ghana, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia. I assisted in project startup, budgeting and finance, procurement, establishing a grants program and provided general support for all aspects of project finance and operations.

Previously, I was the Deputy Chief of Party for SPRING/Ghana, a project that reduced community-level malnutrition and anemia in northern Ghana through a holistic approach that encompassed WASH and agriculture interventions as well as nutrition. I oversaw the financial and operational systems in the head office and in 15 satellite offices. Prior to my work with SPRING, I served in similar capacities with USAID-funded projects in Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Mali and South Sudan, among other countries, working on HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, maternal/child health, pharmaceutical supply chain and agricultural research projects. Throughout my 25 years of professional experience, I have successfully managed large, complex projects with multiple offices and stakeholders during start-up, project implementation, and close-out and have directly supervised large teams of project staff. I understand the critical link between technical and financial/ operational activities to ensure project success.
