My name is Elisa Urbinati and I joined MSABI a few months ago as the In-Country Program Manager.
I came to Tanzania to climb the Kilimanjaro and travel around. I had been here before, have friends living in the country and was on a career break. MSABI came around unexpectedly – I have got to know the organization through a friend who knew Dale Young, the founder. They were looking for someone for this position and… here I am in Ifakara!
My background is in Oil and Gas, sector in which I have been working for over 12 years, in different positions and several countries. My last 5 years were in Luanda, Angola, so I have a relevant experience in this continent.
I have a long team and project leading experience, which I hope will benefit MSABI in the course of the coming year.
One of my biggest passions is travelling and I have visited many African countries over the last few years. I love the outdoors so I am looking forward to being able to go camping in the wilderness around the Kilombero river valley as soon as the rain allows!
