Experience before YEP
Before YEP, I spent most of my time on construction sites, interning at Richards Engineering Inc. and on the civil team of APM Terminals Liberia Ltd. I also went on to become project supervisor at Saab Supreme Construction and Maintenance Contractors. I later joined Eco-Ship Incorporated, an environmentally focused non-profit that utilises innovation, education, entrepreneurship and leadership to drive environmental change and foster sustainability, as Director of Operations until the outbreak of Covid-19 in Liberia. I then joined Emergi and subsequently, YEP.
