Chief Officer, Education & ICT
I started school in Mwarandinda Primary school, Sokoke ward , Ganze sub county, then proceeded to Maryhill Girls High School Thika and thereafter was admitted in Moi University where I pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Cultural Studies majoring in Anthropology.
I started a master’s degree in Anthropology after graduation at the same institution but differed after securing a job with the office of the president as a District Officer. Two years later I enrolled at the University of Nairobi to do a Master’s degree in Gender and Development Studies.
My ultimate target is to complete and hand over all projects started by H.E Governor Kingi administration. I also want to see that learning conditions have improved for both ECD’s and VTC’s through provision of adequate facilities and learning materials.
We are a team of multi-skilled and multi-disciplinary open minded professionals who are committed to the promotion of quality and relevance in pre-primary education, vocational training and ICT service delivery.
