In the past, I worked for international organizations and multinational companies such as the United Nations and Nestlé amongst others, on the ground but also in Geneva and Brussels.

Currently, I am leading strategy and philanthropic relations as Director at We Share Forward Foundation, a philanthropic foundation that funds social entrepreneurship and education through the revolving funding model; based in the Hague. 

I am a Trustee and Supervisory Board Member at the Centre for Access to Football in Europe, an organization working to improve access and inclusion for disabled people in football and the main CSR partner of UEFA. I am a BMW Foundation Responsible Leader and ambassador for the Erasmus+ programme by the EU Commission.

I completed the Executive Program at Said Business School, Oxford University in Impact Investing. I graduated with a Master's in International Affairs from the Graduate Institute of International And Development Studies in Geneva. 

Currently, I am exploring the power of impact investing and venture philanthropy through blended finance and co-funding strategies, steering a consortium of 16 funders and impact investors addressing access to healthcare in Subsaharan Africa through blended finance.
