I have diploma's in both occupational therapy and comprehensive nursing, that I completed in NZ. Latterly, I completed a Bachelors degree with a double major in Cultural Anthropology and Public Relations. Currently, I am undergoing my Masters in Medical Anthropology and Sociology. I have developed and delivered a course on Training and Communication Skills, to health workers in Nepal and Ethiopia. For my upcoming research I plan to undertake a primarily literature based search on Health Promotion Efforts towards improved Sanitation – how effective are they in achieving desired behaviour change? The focus will be on a project in Nepal that is aiming to prevent the practice of Open Defaecation.
