I am a consultant on international environmental and development programming and fundraising.

I have twenty five years experience in community development and environmental protection. I have worked with the Institute for Social and Environmental Transition-International as COO and Senior Research Associate, the Environmental Health Fund as International Programs Advisor, Global Greengrants Fund as both Program Director and Development Director, Lutheran Refugee Services as Employment Administrator, Catholic Relief Services in many capacities in Africa and the US, and the US Peace Corps in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  Ten of those years were in East and Southern Africa, and the remainder in the United States.

I have designed development and environmental programs, managed budgets from $200,000 to $20 million, raised funds from governments, foundations, and major donors, designed, managed and led evaluations of programs, designed and led training and organizational development workshops, built and managed global networks, and traveled and worked extensively on every continent except Antarctica.

I am fluent in English, French, Kiswahili, intermediate in Spanish, and able to get in trouble in Portuguese. I studied German for six years and wonder what happened to it.

I Have a Masters Degree in Social Change and Development from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, DC, and a Bachelors Degree in Biology and African Studies from Wesleyan University in Connecticut.
