    I am obsessed with making things happen. I am a brand builder, an aggressive project manager and a passionate network architect. After 3 years of my own ventures, I am applying my entrepreneurial spirit in structured corporate environments, with resources where I can make a deeper impact. I am currently based 1/2 in Nairobi, 1/4 in Cape Town, 1/4 in Shanghai.

     

    My first passion is women's spiritual and professional empowerment. I am currently the Executive Director of Phoenix Risen, a global platform bringing men and women together to combat sexual violation. I have consulted for many grassroots organizations in China including World Academy for the Future of Women, Badi Foundation and Eden Ministry. In addition, I founded the League of Extraordinary Women and we have collaborated with Lean In and IPWS, among other organizations to address young women's challenges in Shanghai.

     

    My second passion is global connectivity. I founded the China Africa Tech Initiative to help build peer to peer mentoring, and greater knowledge/technology transfer. As the Outgoing Curator of the Global Shapers Shanghai II Hub, a multi-stakeholder community by the World Economic Forum, I have the opportunity to meet young leaders from 500 different cities.

     

    My third passion is communicating complex technologies into powerful and executable brand narratives, in the realm of IoT, FinTech, Health Tech and SaaS.

     

    I believe that curiosity in large doses is the most important trait anyone can have. With curiosity comes passion, resourcefulness and bravery. With curiosity comes innovation.
