I am a program manager and public speaker currently living in Reno, NV. I am fortunate to work for a Healthcare company that is raising the standard of healthcare for everyone, everywhere.

I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degree in Public Health with an emphasis on both Global Health and Healthcare Administration. My goal is to pursue a doctorate in Business Management.

Global health and girl empowerment are two of my passions. Growing up in Cameroon and visiting neighboring countries, my loved ones experienced poor healthcare that resulted in fatal medical errors. The need to educate, to innovate, and to build future global healthcare leaders is critical to the change that is desperately needed as citizens of our emerging, interconnected global community.

The lack of programs that mentor young women and young girls in my community inspired me to create A.B.L.E. Women: Ambition, Beauty, Leadership, Equality, a non-profit based in Reno, Nevada. A.B.L.E. Women was founded in the Spring of 2009 and has since supported 500+ women in the community through programs such as Queen in You. Queen in You is an initiative where girls ages 12-17 come together to learn about personal care, mental health, sex education, the importance of an education and being confident in their skin. High school students can participate in a college preparation session where A.B.L.E. Women volunteers encourage and help students apply for colleges and scholarships. Many of these women are attending or have graduated from college, and are contributing members in their community.

A.B.L.E. Women has become a community and network of strong women from diverse backgrounds supporting other women around the nation. For details on how to get involved, please contact cagborbessem@gmail.com.
