About Me: 

I currently work at WaterAid America -- our mission is to raise awareness and funds in the US about the global water and sanitation crisis in support of WaterAid's 17 country programs in Africa, Asia, and the Pacific. Water and sanitation are primarily women's issues -- and they are not prioritized, in part, because globally, women lack a voice. I strongly believe that when women are healthy, educated, and vocal, communities are better off! I am also a graduate of Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs where I studied economic and political development with a focus on water, sanitation, and hygiene as a vehicle for economic development. Before attending SIPA's Masters Program, I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Moldova where I taught English as a second language and, as a secondary project, engaged in environmental activities with my students. It was in Moldova that I first became aware of what life was like without a constant flow of water coming from the tap.

My Languages:
