My journey from academia to professional career execution has led me to my primary career goal: An inspirational dedicated Public Health and Conservation professional closing the gap in the One-Health approach. Currently, I work as a Health and Conservation Officer, where I am directly involved in Promoting biodiversity conservation, Promoting and advocating for a One-Health, Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) approach, Monitoring and tracking zoonotic disease transmissions between wildlife, humans, and livestock, Empowering local communities. I am therefore excited at the prospect of working with the experts at the WILDHUB which provides space to exchange ideas, and create new solutions. With this opportunity, it would enable me to synthesize what I have learned so far and help me further study the relationships, and develop into the next generation of conservation
