May ’17: Springtime in DC

This month, I put away my official passport and get to finally settle into this new gig in the Bureau for Food Security at USAID. While I’ve technically been in this position for almost five months, I have spent half of my time on leave or on work trips that have taken me away from the home office. I’m working on reviewing documents and getting used to the norms of this new Bureau. And yes, it definitely has its own character just as the Africa Bureau did. I’m more directly connected to leadership but the technical folks feel pretty spread across multiple sectors. Food security is no simple thing! In addition, I get to enjoy springtime in DC and finally start bending my mind toward ICCB 2017 in Cartagena. I’m organizing a symposium, a knowledge cafe, and of course, facilitating SCB Chapter grassroots leaders throughout!
