I am a lawyer whose work focuses on human rights, democracy and governance. I am the new Director for the Legal Empowerment Fund. Prior to this, I was the Technical Lead – Africa for the Center for Reproductive Rights, a global legal advocacy organization dedicated to advancing reproductive rights. Between 2014 and 2019, I served as the Chief of Party (Kenya) for Public International Law & Policy Group (PILPG) a global pro bono law firm that that provides legal assistance to states, governments and civil society organizations. Before taking up my position at PILPG, I worked for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Kenya. Prior to joining the Supreme Court of Kenya, I worked on immigrant and human rights issues in Washington State at Microsoft Corporation, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and Columbia Legal Services. I am very interested in environmental justice and look forward to connecting with people and organizations that are working in the legal empowerment fora. Above all, I am a perpetual idealist and global citizen and fiercely passionate about building a better, more just and inclusive world.
