About Me
After a twenty year career in the financial services industry, I obtained a Master's degree in Public Health. In 2015-16 I worked in East Africa advancing development of Ethiopia's public health insurance program and, more recently, in Tanzania supporting a 'first 1000 days' initiative. Other interests include gardening, tennis, hiking and travel.
