"Dance like no one is watching"
My first encounter with the injustice of poverty and vulnerability sparked a passion in me. For nearly 10 years I worked in microfinance/ biz development with impoverished women in Latin America before becoming fascinated with the question of how to meaningfully engage the private sector in development challenges. After returning to graduate school and serving as a strategy consultant for Accenture, I transitioned to a large healthcare company to help guide the development of an approach to support local communities lead their own development initiatives.
