My Story

During the day, I work with my amazing small team on a Financial technology startup called Tilly Intelligence! I serve as the Director of Operations. We have received 500K USD in pre-seed funding to utilize AI and Blockchain to make the credit and lending ecosystem in Africa fairer for all.

Outside of work, I love to write. I wrote my first two novels, Afrotistic and The Worst Saturday Ever in 2021, and plan to write at least one book a year for the next few years.

In my free time, you can catch me reading a good book, relearning the piano and how to paint, and going on walks with my husband.


To summarize, I worked in Psychological and UX research settings in well-known institutions around the world. I’m an avid mentor and volunteer, and will always have time to advise marginalized youth and youth living in the global south.
