Crissie’s background in International Development has given her to opportunity to have lived in various countries such as Kenya, South Sudan, Sierra Leone and El Salvador for over a span of 10 years. During her years abroad, she worked with local partner agencies in the sphere of Public Health with a focus on water and sanitation, gender equality, economic development, capacity building and social justice.
