Hire San!

Globalization is creating new vocation-models that I embrace with passion , and I see my vocational life as a series of entrepreneurial 'Me' projects, including the times when I was an employee. 

Perhaps because I believe in individual empowerment and the dignity of each human life (read my vision and mission here), I think I am a great hire because I am highly motivated to perform well, for myself. My awards and testimonials are indicative of my professional performance. In addition to managing organizations or projects, I love consulting, teaching, and speaking, so I offer services in these three areas.

Testimonials

"San is one of the most creative, intelligent, and talented colleagues with whom I have worked. We have worked together in many contexts including the University of Washington's Evans School of Public Policy, World Vision, and at a technology conference in California where we did a joint presentation. She is an outstanding thinker and strategist, completely dedicated to humanitarian causes and related policy issues"

John Reid
Former Vice President of Strategy, World Vision


"San came into Serbia and worked with the Serbia Media Assistance Program to help us review the strategic position of a long term partner. She quickly analyzed the situation and helped us get a clearer picture of some of the issues that we did not have a good handle on and as importantly, helped us see things that we already knew if a new light. I have been working with this partner since 1997 but she presented her findings in easy to grasp charts and graphics that better prepares IREX to help this partner move ahead into a changing political, economic and technical environment."
