With over 11 years of experience in large scale industry and humanitarian and NGO projects, Anita is the architect of PeaceGeeks' project management and is tasked with the successful delivery of all major projects.
Anita's work in capacity building, human rights advocacy and engineering solutions has taken her to the Middle East, Africa, India and Europe. A filmmaker/documentarian with experience in investigative journalism field research, her collaborative projects have been screened all over the world. She holds an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and Masters in Environmental & Chemical Engineering. Hailing from Whistler, BC, Anita is an internationally sponsored mountain athlete, frequent keynote speaker and passionate changemaker.
Anita's work with nonprofits is fuelled by the belief that an NGO's purpose is to no longer be needed; more importantly, that the quest to produce a fairer, more just society should become the expected norm rather than an out of the box pursuit.
ANITA GETS GEEKY ABOUT:
Anything fantastically disobedient! And maybe home DNA testing kits or multi-directional clothing
"If you tremble with indignation at every injustice then you are a comrade of mine."
