Nutritionist with exceptional skills in community nutrition. I have over 15 years experience in nutrition research, extension services and technology transfer with farmers and NGOs. I am a holder of a Master of Public Health and Epidemiology from Kenyatta University, Nairobi, and a Diploma in Food Science & Technology, Egerton University, Njoro, Kenya. Additionally, I hold certificates in maternal and child nutrition, current issues in nutrition, adequate food and nutrition as a human right, monitoring and evaluation of food and nutrition security policy impacts, food and nutrition security in the context of HIV/AIDs, HIV/AIDs and ARVs-Emerging challenges for nutrition security in sub-Saharan Africa from Wageningen, Netherlands. I am a key collaborator on a project that is integrating agriculture and health approach into an existing health project (APHIA II) in Western Kenya to improve the well-being of vulnerable target groups; pregnant/lactating mothers and children below 2 years old. This approach has been designed to deliver technologies (health and agricultural technologies), while encouraging healthy behavior through the delivery of nutrition and health communication messages through various community channels, such as local agricultural extension services, local NGOs, and primary health centers. I have concluded a 2 – year Post-Masters Fellowship under the African Women in Agriculture Research and Development (AWARD) CGIAR Gender and Diversity programme, an opportunity I have used to further achieve my career goals which culminated at Emory University in Atlanta Georgia, USA. I am currently a PhD student at Maseno University, Kenya.
