Hi, I'm a Senior Programme Officer as part of the International Programme Unit at VSA. In my role I'm exploring ways in which our systems, processes, practices and strategy toolkits can make for an impactful volunteer experience.
Before landing at VSA I spent several years at the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFAT), starting out at the New Zealand Embassies in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. More recently I worked on the New Zealand Aid Programme for two years before swapping aid for trade to coordinate the implementation of a number of New Zealand's Free Trade Agreements.
I love working with interested and interesting people to find creative and best practice solutions to wicked, hard problems. At VSA I get to do just that.
