Born and brought up in Western Kenya, Kakamega County. Maureen is a social scientist by profession having completed her Masters of Arts in Sociology and bachelor’s degree in Social Science (Sociology option) from Moi University. When she was growing up, she dreamed of being a street actor. Maureen now says “Thankfully, my career goals became more aspirational over the years, but I love being strategic and wooing masses – a passion that make me a successful Social Manager”.
Looking back over the last 10 years, Maureen observes “I have built my career on one simple principle: Working smart. I am the kind of person who puts a stop to inefficient procedures, I find ways to streamline them and consistently strives to boost the productivity of everyone around me. This is what has been allowing me to move up the ladder since I started my career and it is what I am doing as the Programme Director of Ngong Road Children Association (NRCA). I try to regularly associate with passionate people who help me push myself, I try to get inspiration from within and get motivated when I can solve challenging assignments.”
Further, Maureen explains, “I believe as the Programme Director of NRCA, I can lead the organization to greater heights. Being passionate about orphans and vulnerable children I want to be their leader and inspiration. By showing them the love they much need they will always appreciate NRCA as their best home while I and my team strive to transform their lives physically, emotionally, cognitively and socially’.
