Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I was born and grew up in Kenya, I studied in Kenya up to university level and also qualified as a chartered accountant. I worked for Ernst & Young firstly in Kenya and then in Bermuda. Later, I worked for the Central Bank of Bermuda. While in Bermuda I studied and qualified as a certified financial analyst and moved to Ireland in 2011 to take up a role with the Central Bank of Ireland, where I oversee that banks compliance with financial regulations (i.e. they safely maintain customer deposits and have enough money to lend to customer). I joined the board on Aidlink in 2021.
Can you tell us about someone who inspired/inspires you?
My mother is my greatest inspiration. She was a primary school teacher and she was able to raise and educate a family of 7 children, including 2 of my cousins, by herself. My father died when we were young, leaving my mother with young children, with no financial assistance from government or friends.
