I am a Brussels-based independent consultant with over eight years of experience in developing policy, advocating and campaigning on the EU political scene. My academic background in international relations, coupled with my passion for promoting social justice, equality and a rights-based approach to policy allow me to excel in getting messages across to decision makers.
I have represented organisations such as Amnesty International, Marie Stopes International, Front Line Defenders and the International Planned Parenthood Federation European Network (IPPF EN) in their day-to-day dealings with the EU institutions in Brussels.
My areas of expertise are: EU foreign affairs and development policy; human rights and international humanitarian law; fundamental rights in the EU; asylum and migration policy; gender equality, women’s rights and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
