As the founder of YesEM, I have a strong background in leading change in the water, gender equity and tourism sectors. I am the facilitator of the Emerging Water Professionals Program of the International RiverFoundation in Australia. I have worked with Melbourne Water, OXFAM (covering transboundary water governance programs in the Mekong and South Asia), Australian AID (Mekong Water Resources Team), UN International Labour Organisation, Global Water Partnership, and Engineers Without Borders. I serve on the Alliance for Water Stewardship Board of Directors as the Deputy Chair. Alliance for Water Stewardship is a global network dedicated to advancing and deepening the impact of credible water stewardship. Through our collaborative work we inspire water users and managers to be responsible stewards of our freshwater resources.
