Alice has always been passionate about International Development and is excited to be finally applying her skills with The Muskoka Foundation. Her background spans careers in finance and strategy consulting, in for-profit, pro-bono and non-profit companies. Having worked on the trading floor with currency and interest rate flows and on project finance transactions on Wall Street and in Asia, Alice rounded out her development work preparation with Bain & Company Southeast Asia working on corporate strategy specializing in supply chain and logistics, consumer products and commercial banking. Alice spent significant time working in Thailand, India and China and worked and traveled pretty much everywhere else in Asia.
In the social sector, Alice started with a short stint at the World Bank in Asia, followed by heading up Bain's pro-bono consulting practice in Singapore culminating most recently in a manager role with The Bridgespan Group in San Francisco working on education. With her experience and degrees from Columbia College in East Asian Studies and Economics, political science from the Stanford Japan Center in Kyoto and an MBA from Harvard Business School in hand, Alice is now FINALLY starting to feel more qualified to make a positive difference! Alice anticipates that most of the learning and impact of Muskoka will happen through the work with our ground partners and local communities, where our approach is to listen first and learn what really works as we go.
