Water & Sanitation Consulting
We provide professional consulting services for the WASH sector. We build capacity to address common pain points that make it difficult for the sector participants to unlock funding opportunities and manage sustainable business models. Our services include business management assessment; monitoring, analytics, and evaluation; strategic marketing and storytelling; and building engaging professional development programs. We also work with the private sector to understand their funding requirements and build their sector knowledge to help connect them to organizations ready to partner in mutually-beneficial relationships.
Edutaining Classes & Advocacy
Studies show awareness-building is critical to nourishing philanthropic movements and global change. With this in mind, we are dedicated to changing public perception of sanitation so that the “taboo” of toilets may be overcome. We believe that this enhanced awareness will result in greater experimentation, more innovation, and heightened interest in transforming sanitation in lives around the globe.

Years later, she was reminded of that love while consulting in India and continued to follow her passion by working in Australia, Kenya, Ghana, and Cambodia. Has also worked for international NGOs focused on providing safe drinking water. She was also a founding board member of a local water organization, NYC H2O.
