I am coming from living and working in New York City the business world where I was doing financial planning & analysis in a number of different industries. What is that? In essence helping companies figure out the financial effect of their plans and aspirations. Where does the motivation come from to transition from the business world to humanitarian aid worker? I have to admit that in a world where the political discourse can be so immediately polarizing I have found a need to be involved in direct action in providing care and relief.
I was happy to find that MSF needs volunteers that have my skill set to run the HR & Finance activities of their missions. This is my first mission with MSF, and I am fortunate to have the understanding of my family and friends to give myself to this work.
