I managed the migration of the management information system across a three-country network. I led 11 team members that included both local staff and external software developers. Additionally, I supported donor relationships and reporting requirements for Aga Khan Foundation USA and the US Department of Agriculture.
There was a small local vegetarian spot in Ouagadougou, that offered all of the local cuisine without meat. From tofu brochettes to tô to riz gras and fufu, I enjoyed experiencing the vegetarian versions of Burkina’s cuisine.
Work hard and make the most out of this unique experience. Collaborate with the local team. Listen first.
I am currently the Executive Director of the Pecaut Centre for Social Impact, which operates within The Boston Consulting Group. Also, I have designed and currently teach a course in microfinance and impact investing at the University of Toronto.
