Affiliations and Achievements:
Reference from my Director Tony Jansen, United Purpose.
Maria thrived in a complex working environment with different challenges from donors,
various HR issues, external threats to the program with finance implications, managing
gaps in core cost recovery. Maria was able to work with relevant staff under her supervision and the country director to successfully navigate and resolve each of them. She worked very well in a cross cultural context with the right balance of friendship and respect while holding team members to their responsibilities. She left the country program and its finance and administration systems in a strong position for the future.
I do not hesitate to recommend Maria for future employment that requires strong financial analysis and oversight skills, working in a developing country or headquarters context, and that requires a flexible, problem solving orientation and team based approach.
