Prior Experience

Prior to moving into consultancy work, Ray was the Deputy Country Director for DKT Tanzania, one of the world’s largest family planning organizations. She was charged with creating and implementing the organization’s annual strategic plans and overseeing all operational departments, including Logistics, Sales, Marketing & Communications, HR & Admin, and Service Delivery.
