Interests: Criminal Justice, Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Traditional / Customary Justice
I specialize in human rights, access to justice and governance issues under the Administration of Justice Programme at Legal Resources Foundation (LRF), an NGO based in Nairobi for the last ten years. I have participated in formulation, design and implementation of numerous projects around human rights and access to justice including legal aid for indigent criminal offenders.

I possess vast experience in training and facilitation of community paralegals on Alternative Dispute Resolution, Paralegalism and Access to Justice, Law and Society, Democracy and Governance. I have trained paralegals for International Organization for Migration (IOM), Coffey International, Catholic Justice and Peace Commission. I have been a facilitator in training community resource persons for Shalom Centre of Peace and Conflict resolution and Centre for Rights Education and Awareness in 2019.
I participated closely and strongly in pushing through Public Interest Litigation that eventually led to declaration of detention under presidential pleasure for underage offenders unconstitutional in May 2017. I co drafted submissions on a Public Interest Litigation challenging commencement of murder trials at the High Court of Kenya as opposed to Magistrates Courts, a practice deemed to entrench discrimination contrary to Article 27 (1)(4) of the Constitution.

I hold Bachelor of Arts Degree in Development Studies, Diploma in Project Management and Certified Secretary Part II. I am a Certified Professional Mediator.
Lastly, I represents Legal Resources Foundation Trust (LRF) at the Judiciary Taskforce on Alternative Justice Systems since March 2016.
