I was a journalist for a couple of decades before running off to join the humanitarian circus in 2006. Since then, I've worked with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) / Doctors Without Borders in various roles and places.

I’m now the executive director in New York following several years as director of communications and fundraising in our operational headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. I've also worked as a country representative and project coordinator, managing operations that provided aid to refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Mauritania, South Sudan and South Africa.
