I worked for the Federal Government in the US African Development Foundation for 6 years as a Program Analyst managing economic development grants (cradle to grave) in East and West Africa. I also was a Peace Corps volunteer in Niger who worked on a number of issues. My specialty is really in community development, business development, capacity building, and logistics. I'm very familiar working in more remote, rural areas and the challenges associated with those locations.
