Major areas of responsibility: I provide guidance to staff toward improving data collection and outcome tracking, reporting, and analysis of community, client, and resident data.

Relevant background: My areas of expertise are public policy, local government capacity building, and data management and analysis. I served the Ministry of Finance in Colombia where I coordinated negotiations around debt restructuring, and developed policy briefs on energy transition and climate change policies. I have been a small businesswoman and volunteer in environmental endeavors.
