Debra

I am the co-founder and Executive Director of Beyond Fistula. I founded the nonprofit in 2012 after seeing how much these young Kenyan women needed help rebuilding their lives after recovering from a childbirth injury known as obstetric fistula. I am endlessly motivated by their hope and tenacity in the face of greater suffering than anyone should have to bear. I aspire to help as many women as we can in Eldoret, Kenya, through partnerships with Fistula Foundation and Gynocare Fistula Center.
