I am a Deputy Director on Knowledge Management for the CARE USA Food and Nutrition Security team focusing on ways to better learn from and share implementation experiences on eradicating poverty through empowering women and girls. I love spending time designing systems to capture and share information across many sources. With four-years of on-the-ground experience in West Africa and academic publications on community engagement and the human element in food security in Africa, I am especially interested in community-lead development. My work focuses on making sure that we can learn from communities and how to make our work better for them, and that communities can engage in their own development for sustainable, appropriate results. I'm fluent in French and Dogon, and has experience in food security, nutrition, health, governance, and gender programming.
