BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE

Consultant

I've been working in consulting in the GCC for the past three years, mostly in education policy and healthcare. Before that I worked in political research, writing and event planning. During my time in college, I had the chance to intern in Bahrain with the Supreme Council for Women, a green NGO in Berlin, and Deutsche Welle in DC. I also worked as a research assistant while at school at the  for Contemporary Arab Studies.

ABOUT ME

I may be a consultant in profession, but I am a bit of a chameleon when it comes to my interests. I love art, pottery, and film, but I also love to run, cycle, hike, do handstands, and any other activity I get my hands on. I bring in a little bit of creativity to every deck I build for work, and I keep it light hearted always no matter how fussy clients get. I'd say talk to me if you need to know how to stay sane and be yourself while selling your soul to the corporate world.
