Following twenty years as a career Foreign Service Officer in the Department of State, I have served five times as Chief of Party or Country Director on projects based in the Middle East, Afghanistan, and Sudan. These projects have ranged in size from $22 to $160 million. I have worked on improving governance in fragile or post-conflict states with extensive experience in grants, building infrastructure, civil society engagement, gender, elections preparation and monitoring, working with IDPS, and improving service delivery outcomes.
