What made you want to get into global health impact consulting?

Having worked primarily in the resource-limited NGO and public sectors, I entered global health consulting in order to counsel the private sector on how to better leverage their resources and invest more effectively in global public health while reaching populations in most need.

What is your favorite aspect of Rabin Martin and the work you do?

My favorite aspect is by far the thoughtful, kind, intelligent people I work with every day, who are all passionate about global health and driven to advance health equity through their work.

What is your favorite Rabin Martin value?

My favorite Rabin Martin value is accountability. It underpins the work we do for our clients and the way that we challenge each other every day to promote true public health principles and serve populations in need, inside and outside of work.

What are your biggest interests outside of work?

Outside of work, I am an avid reader of Spanish and Arabic literature as well as a piano player. Whenever I can, I try to spend some time by the water – beach, pools, rivers, you name it. I also enjoy (trying to) learn new languages when I have the time – so many languages, so little time.

What is the last book you couldn’t put down?

I recently finished reading Crime and Punishment, which I hoped to do for some time!
