Summary

I am a qualified and experienced public health professional specializing in planning, implementation, analysis and coordination of programs targeting women and children within humanitarian and developmental contexts. I have a bachelors' degree in Nutrition and dietetics and proceeded to obtain a Master of Public Health. I am currently supporting nutrition interventions in humanitarian context in Adamawa State as a consultant with UNICEF. I have eight years' experience in strategic planning, implementation and supportive supervision of programs aimed at improving the living conditions of women and children. In the course of my work with UNICEF, I have had the opportunity to work with stakeholders at different levels of programing and have represented UNICEF in humanitarian coordination meetings at the sector and inter sector levels this has exposed me to networking skills which have really helped me with achieving results that are linked to collaborative efforts. Supportive supervision to camps and host communities in the state gave me a considerably good view of the economic, political and social trends affecting nutrition situation among children of IDPs in Adamawa State. This information has been used in improving service delivery to better suit the needs of the population. Analytical thinking during my engagement with Food Basket Foundation International led to the conduct of research which was able to redefine the expectations of stakeholders on school feeding program as an intervention. As the project officer of the feeding program in FBFI, I also had the privilege of leading my own team which involved supervising three program officers who report to me, this experience taught me the importance of inter personal relationship in getting team members to give their best at all times. My consultancy experience has wired me to aim for the best quality in discharging my duties. I have a deep commitment to human rights, integrity, social justice and alleviation of human suffering irrespective of cause (man-made or natural disasters). I possess an ability to adjust to diverse cultural settings and I understand the technicalities and emotional intelligence needed in working effectively with people at all levels to achieve needed results. I am result oriented and understand the need to drive for these results with humane disposition. Bio data Sex Female
