With over 10 years work experience, I have worked with both the public and private sector across different industries such as education, banking, government, health and International Development. My work is driven by the vision of engineering a productive culture and helping others grow.
I am currently the Chief Executive Officer of D!scover; a global consultancy agency that works with business leaders and their teams to create fearless cultures that propel their businesses into the future.
Through D!scover, I intend to help organizations re-discover the human side of their business.

As an advocate for young professionals, my dream is to see young professionals with the agility to develop their leadership skills and be prepared to take on opportunities. I therefore, candidly coach young professionals into sought after leaders in their areas of expertise through expert knowledge in behaviour change.
My focus areas are Personal growth, brave leadership and career development.

My Accomplished Projects
I am part of a collaborative mentorship scheme run by LSE Africa Centre. I am a leadership mentor to Africa’s brightest young minds, collaboratively sharing knowledge and experiences with aims of contributing to innovative solutions in Education for International Development.
I was part of a group of 4 graduate students in International Development from The London School of Economics that designed a mobile technology solution to disaster preparedness and health responses in Uganda and Kenya. Held at The Graduate Institute of Geneva, this edition sought to address the complex issues arising from global health and how to tackle these challenges in order to foster social and economic development.
As a global health enthusiast, I am a collaborator to the World Health Organization agenda of global health governance and disease. I along with my colleagues led a WASH project on the course of our African Leadership program. This health and wellbeing project, a case study of Uganda aimed at reducing enteric diseases through sustainable access to clean water. The project contributed to a bottom-up approach to policy making and increased knowledge on good hygiene practices in preventing enteric disease.
I also managed a research project entitled The politics of vaccination: uncovering the role of politics and finance in hepatitis B vaccination coverage in Uganda. This research contributed to policy formation and practice.
