I joined MSF in 2004 and after 11 years, I became the executive director of MSF USA on June 1 2015.
I have an extensive background in crisis and advocacy communications. In my former role as communications director, I oversaw emergency and advocacy communications campaigns on issues ranging from the Haiti earthquake and the West African Ebola outbreak, to global childhood malnutrition and HIV/AIDS.
I have also conducted risk assessments and context analyses in South Sudan and Myanmar for MSF's Medical Care under Fire campaign.
I speak regularly on humanitarian issues, photo ethics, and crisis communications at international conferences and I have had papers published in foreign policy journals on subjects ranging from attacks against humanitarian aid workers to the role of social media in humanitarian action.
