Senior Program Manager
"For the love of social good"
I am a strategic and innovative thinker and doer driven by a passion for designing and implementing high-impact and collaborative solutions to social challenges.
I build human capital and mainstream social impact as IDEX Accelerator’s (IDEX) Senior Program Manager. In this role I oversee curriculum development for the IDEX Global Fellows Program, manage InvestWISE (IDEX’s women’s leadership development initiative), and build/cultivate strategic partnerships.
Prior to IDEX, my career has landed me in places like the African Union, Aspen Institute, Georgia State University, and Stimson Center. I satisfy my entrepreneurial cravings as the Founder of Kitoko International, an entity consisting of a consultancy and socially conscious enterprise.
I… Am a third culture kid. Became a sci-fi geek at the age of 13. Treat every day like a new adventure. Read everything about everything. Maintain an obsession with southern and African (Senegalese, Congolese, and Ethiopian) cuisine. Am a self-professed music connoisseur. Take semi-decent pictures of my adventures with a camera I have never learned to operate.
