Associate Director, Communications

What I do at MMV:

I help manage and solidify MMV’s internal and external communications in line with MMV’s organizational strategy. Working on such a well-rounded communications team, we will come up with even more creative and innovative ways to tell MMV’s story, raise awareness and encourage people to support our cause.

Why I work at MMV:

MMV plays a critical role in the field of antimalarial drug research and development, and I am beyond honoured to have the opportunity to contribute my skills and creativity towards a cause dedicated to saving lives. Also, I am inspired by the enthusiasm that I feel from colleagues at MMV across cultures and disciplines. 

More about me:

Before joining MMV, I managed the MSC Foundation’s communication and marketing plan, developing its toolkits for all communication channels and facilitating their implementation and integration in the marketing plans of other MSC Group entities. I hold a B.Sc. Degree in Mass Communication and Public Relations from Rochester University and a MS Degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Eastern Michigan University, both in the United States.

Ask me about:

Communications strategy, storytelling and making complex subjects understandable for all. You can also ask me about music, travel, food, vinyl collecting, yoga and working out!
