With the establishment of the new Department of Medical & Occupational Safety and Health, it is our aim to build strong links and also make sure mechanisms for staff to report back to us, any Medical, Health and Safety issues that adversely affect the staff in the field.

We strongly believe in an organisation that is accountable for the health and wellbeing of its staff and we intent to give these matters the highest priority.

There cannot be any compromise when it comes to the good health, safety and wellbeing of the international staff of the UN Peacekeeping operations.

More than 25 Years working in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations all over the world have attributed to the creation of a multicultural, multifaceted, multi-skilled and creative problem solver, that finds technology solutions to address any challenge. Applying innovative approaches to improve the way things are done, never accepting the status quo. I love technology and am a pioneer and early adopter, finding ways to have technology make us do things better and help improve the world is my passion. My diverse life and work experiences have created an open-minded leader that is never afraid to try something new. I love to network and connect with like-minded people and consider myself to have great inter-personal skills. I am a strong communicator both verbal and written.
