Director, Major Gifts
Pooja joined STE in 2019 with 14 years of fundraising experience at organisations in the US and Australia. However, her first passion has always been the protection of wildlife. She has a Bachelors in Zoology from Ohio Wesleyan University and a Masters in Wildlife Conservation from Macquarie University.
Pooja has travelled extensively around the world and sought out volunteer opportunities at various wildlife rescue and conservation organisations. This includes stints at the Elephant Valley Project in Cambodia and Elephant Conservation Centre in Laos. So it seems like no accident that she found her way to Nairobi to join us at STE.
In her own words, Pooja feels like she has been prepping for this role her entire life and is thrilled at the opportunity to contribute to STE’s important mission.
