She has extensive experience in the field of refugee resettlement, having led a yearlong research study on the long-term psychosocial outcomes for refugees resettled in Massachusetts. At EDCD/African Community Center of Denver, she helped develop and oversee adult employment readiness programs that helped prepare newcomers for the workforce in the U.S.

She helped scale their flagship program from one to 18 states in Brazil. More recently, at the Posner Center for International Development, she strengthened a network of 150+ global development organizations by fostering collaboration, leading an innovation grants program, and coordinating organizational development programming.
