What drew me to Impakt is what makes it unique–Impakt takes a thoughtful, human approach to social change. We aren’t looking for surface-level solutions. Impakt facilitates tangible, lasting, and equitable solutions to incredibly complex problems. And I’m excited to take part in it!
I’ve been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember.
I have worked in global health for a long time, and I strongly believe that health is one of the core foundations of social change. You cannot have quality education without good health. You cannot find a job without good health. You cannot help others without good health. My experience in this sector has helped me appreciate the importance of equitable access to quality healthcare–not just as a human right, but as a door to more opportunity.
