Passionate About Your Professional Growth in International Development
Over 35 years of international development work I have helped refugees find asylum and homes in new countries; built a national US advocacy organization for the UN Refugee Agency; brokered post war political agreements and managed elections and reconstruction in post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina; piloted local economic development in post-Milosevic Serbia; supported stabilization and better government services in the most rural parts of Afghanistan; strengthened governance in Iraq; and conducted conflict resolution and planning for relief and development programs in South Sudan within an increasingly violent environment.
Now I’m dedicating my time to what I enjoy most and do best: helping international development volunteers and professionals thoughtfully construct and manage their careers.
My experience includes international development and diplomacy, governance, conflict, post-conflict, stabilization, reconstruction, and economic development projects on behalf of the United States Government (Department of State and USAID), the International Organization for Migration, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the Office of the High Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina, major international non-governmental organizations, foundations, and US development companies such as Tetra Tech Management Systems International and ARD. I have worked in New York, Washington, DC, Geneva, Cameroon, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Georgia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and South Sudan.
In each assignment recruiting, training, coaching, and watching national and international professionals improve their skills, compete, and succeed has been my highest priority and greatest joy.
My broad development experience gives you insight into the international development system, not just one organization.
Think about it. Decide to take charge of and build your international career. I'm here to help.
Best wishes for your success.
