Director, Digital Collaboration

What I do at MMV:

As Director, Digital Collaboration, I’m responsible for driving information management initiatives to facilitate knowledge exchange across work streams.

Why I work at MMV:

I have always had a passion for health and well-being. Working in Uganda for a year and seeing many of my friends and colleagues fall ill with malaria opened my eyes to a different reality than I experienced growing up. I'm proud to work with such a dedicated and talented team at MMV and to be a part of the mission to reduce the burden of malaria in disease-endemic countries.

More about me:

With 15+ years of experience managing intranets, websites, and a variety of other digital platforms and communications tools, my career path has taken me on a journey across three continents, through various positions with humanitarian and non-profit organizations including the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Médecins Sans Frontières, Right to Play Uganda and the YWCA of Vancouver.

I hold certifications from the Nielsen Norman Group in UX (user experience) and from the Association for Intelligent Information Management in Enterprise Content Management, Information Management with SharePoint/Office 365, Business Process Management as well as Taxonomy & Metadata. Always eager to upgrade my skills, I have completed courses in Intranet Usability, Mobile Usability, Persuasive Website Design, Usability Testing, Stakeholder Engagement, Design Thinking, Lean UX and Agile as well as Web Analytics.

I also hold Professional Diplomas in Digital Marketing and Social Media Marketing from the Digital Marketing Institute (UK), an Associate Certificate in Marketing Communications from the British Columbia Institute of Technology (Canada) and a Bachelor of Human Kinetics from the University of British Columbia (Canada).
