What I Do
I am a writer, a keynote speaker, a leadership coach, a global health consultant, an advocate for Alzheimer’s disease awareness and an occasional poet. My superpower is making complex ideas understandable to everyone.
I have more than twenty years of experience in global health. I’ve built and led large teams across countries, managed high value portfolios, and built my expertise in health system strengthening. I’ve worked closely with host country governments in challenging situations. And I write proposals that consistently get funded.
My substack, Last Mask Standing, looks at the ongoing COVID epidemic from a systems perspective and builds community among people who know COVID is still a threat.
As a leadership coach, I ask powerful questions to help individuals and groups uncover their own truth. I help people love their work and find work they love.
