Seeing the World as a Network – Kate Mbaire

by on September 5, 2013

The next time you get a chance to talk with Kate Mbaire, ask her what historical novel she is reading. She loves historical fiction and mysteries. She has a mini library of them in her house and on her Kindle. She also enjoys nonfiction history on the History Channel.

Kate grew up in Nairobi. She is the eldest of 4, with 2 sisters and one brother. She has a bachelors degree in information systems and a masters in population studies. She joined MEASURE Evaluation last year and she currently works on the Kenya Associate Award (MEASURE Evaluation PIMA) as Senior M&E Associate for the referral systems program; and as the moderator for the PIMA community of practice. With her attention, the community of practice has grown by 70%.

Before MEASURE Evaluation, Kate worked with the Kenyan Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) as a data manager, with FHI as an M&E officer, then with ICF, also as an M&E officer.

Kate: I will admit to having a few books on my shelves that I plan to read but haven’t yet. One you might be interested in is Imperial Reckoning, about Kenya’s colonial days.

Now a word about the next few weeks. During the summer, I attended to the home base while others took their vacations. Now they are back and it is my turn. I will be away the rest of September. It will be a real vacation, so I won’t be writing SWN emails. I will return to them in October. I’ll see you on the other side.
