For the last 6+ years, I’ve had the privilege of working with many smart, funny and committed people in the humanitarian sector, primarily with Médecins sans frontières | Doctors without Borders.

Though my main point of contact with the organization is MSF Canada, I’ve collaborated with MSF stakeholders and SMEs around the world – Geneva, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, South Africa and England, to name a few.

MSF and its people continue to inspire me to do my best to help make the world a better, safer and more equitable place for everyone.
