Master of International Policy Studies with a focus on sustainable development. Near-native proficiency in Swahili. Three years field work experience in Tanzania, East Africa; advancing socio-economic conditions via improved irrigation and natural resource management. Team player, yet comfortable with independent projects and responsibility. Highly resourceful and dedicated to the cause of economic equity. I have written research papers on utilizing small-scale bio-digesters to produce gas in Tanzania and Nepal, applications of micro-turbines using various sources of combustion to produce electricity in rural areas and the environmental and socio-economic benefits of utilizing bioenergy in Tanzania. While in Tanzania I worked with an organization whose mission was to contribute to the development of the socio-economic conditions of local communities through improved traditional irrigation. In addition to assisting with the writing of proposals for contracts, I wrote and edited various reports including quarterly reports, as well as internal strategic plans. I participated in conducting Participatory Rural Appraisals and drawing up Community Action Plans and assisted with facilitating numerous capacity-building training courses from gender and development to soil and water conservation. I was fortunate to be involved in several aspects of project implementation and development so I have the added advantage of recognizing the steps involved in successfully managing a project at every stage in its lifecycle. I am fortunate to have found a career that allows me to combine my passion for sustainable development with my personal and moral obligation to contribute to a change in the human condition. I am strongly dedicated to being a partner in efforts to bring about more freedom of choice throughout the world.
