Bio

I am an American corporate responsibility and sustainability consultant with an interest in international development. With over 10 years of multi-sector experience, I enjoy building dynamic partnerships that leverage partner strengths for social and environmental impact. I completed a Masters in Public Affairs magna cum laude at Sciences Po Paris (France) and a Bachelor of Arts in Public Policy with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (USA). I have a Credential of Readiness certificate from Harvard Business School – HBX (USA) and a Financing for Development certificate from the World Bank/edX.

Mission at New Angles

I contribute to the New Angles mission – change business for good – in two ways: by identifying opportunities for companies to create more sustainable business practices and by supporting and managing New Angles development and operations. In both roles I focus on integrating purpose and inclusion to support company leaders in the transformation of their business models and strategies for positive impact.

Vision

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals reflect the changing role and expectations of the private sector in social and environmental development, and today, principles of sustainability and inclusion are increasingly common across sectors and industries. Integrating sustainability means acknowledging profitmaking as important but short-term earnings as shortsighted; it means putting stakeholder dialogue into practice and impact pioneers into leadership positions. This work takes continuous and deliberate effort, guided by best practices and custom-tailored tools and solutions.
