She has a PhD from SFU in Canada, and an MBA from Wits Business School in South Africa.

She has extensive experience at major multiñnational corporations developing products and leading product development teams in environments facing numerous social and sustainability challenges. As a case writer, she has written many teaching cases that require students to ëunpackí, understand and grapple with complex problems in which the interests of business and society are intertwined.
