I have worn many hats in my career as a nutrition professional, media psychologist, clinician, public health officer, scientist, marketer, researcher, trainer, writer, manager, consultant, analyst, policy strategist and change agent. My technical specialty has evolved to address the changing landscape of health and nutrition, incorporating social sciences to public health programming to reach affected populations and drive behavior change. My work has been mostly focused on the Middle East and North African region. I have served in technical and leadership roles at national and international levels within the World Health Organization and global humanitarian organizations (Action against Hunger, redr uk), including the Syrian crisis, while strategically supporting the regional refugee nutrition response in the Middle East. I have also been involved in implementing programs, projects, and delivering care for patients on behalf of the United Nations, governmental agencies, non-governmental agencies, private practices, pharmaceutical and educational organizations.
