My specialisms include impact measurement and reporting, ESG performance assessment, audit and assurance, commodity supply chains, responsible sourcing, as well as training, capacity building and stakeholder engagement.
For the last nine years I have been working with the private sector, NGOs and international institutions on social and environmental challenges. I started my career in the NGO and government sectors, working with organisations in the US and in developing countries on improving community development outcomes and environmental rights. Since relocating to the UK and finishing my graduate studies here, I have changed my focus to supporting the private sector in contributing more positively to society.
I have worked with companies in all stages of the corporate responsibility journey – from helping companies understand the landscape and best practices, supporting materiality assessments and goal & target setting, to helping companies innovate their social impact strategies and adopt cutting edge reporting and stakeholder engagement practices.
In particular, I have extensively worked with mining companies on resolving social responsibility challenges related to community development, local content, human rights, stakeholder relations, resettlement, supply chain traceability and others. Through this work I have been fortunate to travel to Rwanda, Namibia, South Africa and Mongolia.
Client and Project Experience

Person I most admire
My grandparents – who have lived through wars, regime changes, and chaos - and still were the kindest, most generous, loving and supportive humans I know.
