For the past 7 years, my role has been to guide the quality of work of the Foundation’s staff and ensure the Foundation maintains a culture of continuous improvement across its 17-country global footprint. I am a certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence and certified Quality Improvement (QI) Associate with over 14 years international experience in the health and social development sector.
