Professional Experience:
Field Manager

In January 2006, I completed my career shift from the US private sector to the International Development/Humanitarian sectors within the NGO arena. Previous to that shift, I had experience in various roles and capacities as founder, executive, and senior business development professional in numerous successful investor-owned, non-profit and public health care enterprises. My previous experience in the US private sector has proved especially helpful as I transitioned into the development and humanitarian sectors as a senior NGO manager.

Over the past six years I enjoyed a variety of challenging roles in Africa and Asia, including: Field Manager (three positions), Country Operations Coordinator, Project Manager for the MDR/TB Program, Lesotho. I was recently short-listed and interviewed for the Country Director position with Intermon’ Oxfam in the Republic of South Sudan.

Currently, I hold the position Field Manager for Intermon’ Oxfam, Wau RSS. In this capacity I have program and operational management responsibility for the Wau Field Office supporting program initiatives in WaSH, Food Security and Livelihoods and Education in Western Bhar el Ghazal and Warrap States.

Prior to joining OXFAM, I completed several successful years with American Refugee Committee International (ARC), Minneapolis MN. ARC’s base of field operations at the time was Gulu, Uganda. Situated in Gulu as the Area Coordinator, the role encompassed the management responsibility for a large regional operation covering five districts in Northern Uganda.

Special assignments from ARC/HQ followed as: The Interim Country Operations Coordinator, ARC Pakistan, assisting the new Country Director in the reorganization and development of the Pakistan program in three provinces: Baluchistan (western mountains), KPK (northern tribal areas) and Sindh (southern PK.). Later, providing support and consultative assistance to our programs in South Sudan, as an Operations Advisor and Acting Field Coordinator helping establish a new field office, Wau. And again, another assignment in southwestern Uganda as Interim Head of Office for field programs in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement, followed by another Head Office role in Gulu, in the northern districts.

Recruited and Introduced to South Sudan in 2008 from Lesotho, southern Africa by ARC, to a regional program management responsibilities as the Area Coordinator managing the Kajo Keji programs operating in five program areas: Primary Health Care, HIV/AIDS, and WaSH, MED, and contract management responsibilities for the border WAY STATION and Distribution Center for returnees funded by UNHCR. While in Lesotho, I was privileged to work with Partners In Health to assist in the establishment of an innovative MDR/TB-HIV Program as their Program Manager. Prior to my experience in southern Africa I started my NGO calling as the Program Liaison Officer-Health for
