CV/Resume English (DOC)
A journalist by training, I'm currently a Communications Manager for the Institute of Empirical Research in Political Economy (IERPE) in Benin, West Africa. Besides generating content for the Institute's website, I also translate contracts, reports, surveys, and press releases. I also teach English as a Foreign Language to the professional staff and elective English courses for the students in the Master's in Political Economy and Applied Statistics program.

I have spent four and a half years living and working in Francophone countries, including Benin, Guinea, Niger, and Vietnam.

I have a M.S. in Journalism from Columbia University in New York and a B.A. in English and International Studies from West Virginia Wesleyan College in Buckhannon, WV.
