In addition to my scholarly work, I have extensive professional experience in the for-profit, nonprofit, and government sectors. I have worked for Deloitte, The Urban Institute, the UK Parliament, The Center for Effective Philanthropy, and The George Gund Foundation.
I am also an avid swimmer. A 1997 NCAA Division 3 All-American and 2020 Athletics Hall-of-Fame Inductee at Mount Holyoke College, I now swim daily for fun and fitness. I also occasionally compete in masters competitions and open water swims. One of my proudest swimming moments was competing for the Gezira Sporting Club (Cairo, Egypt) when we won the 2011 Egypt National Masters Swimming Championships.
