My work with SEED is a natural continuation of my career in a non-profit sector.
Prior to joining Schlumberger, I worked for a number of different non-profit organizations that had different missions. One helped refugees with their new lives in the United States, another assisted low-income families in launching and developing small business enterprises, and still another included a store that promotes international fair trade. I also did numerous cultural presentations at local schools. While living in California, I worked as a medical interpreter at Stanford University Medical Center.
Right now, my favorite activity outside work is flamenco. I love Latin American dances, Spanish language and literature, contemporary art and crafts, museums, ballet, opera, traveling to not-so-famous tourist places, independent and foreign movies, and taking care of my lovely dog Syd.
