I'm the director of the Womanity Foundation based in Geneva, Switzerland. I just spoke to amy about FrontlineSMS and the possibilities it offers for the women's radio we started in Palestine. I'm interested to pursue this conversation.

After working for over 18 years with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC, www.icrc.org) as a field-based Delegate in different armed conflicts, and as the main Spokesperson and Head of Public Communication, I entered the microfinance sector as Director of Corporate Communication at BlueOrchard in Geneva from early 2008 until November 2009. As of January 2010, I am heading the Womanity Foundation.
I also sit on the board of directors of "Geneve roule" (www.geneveroule.ch), an organization promoting the use of bicycles and employing asylum seekers and long-term unemployed, and of "Giving Women" (http://givingwomen.ch/), a platform on women in philanthropy. I hold a MSc in Media and Communication from the London School of Economics and a licence ès letters from the University of Geneva.
I'm married, live in Geneva and am of Swiss Italian origin. I practice yoga, love to read and am interested in contemporary art and music. I'm fluent in Italian, German, French, English and Spanish.
