Wilsona is a result-oriented leader with invaluable program management experience. She has formulated and led the delivery of projects with government institutions at national and district levels to support their initiatives in low- and middle-income countries, including Sierra Leone where she worked with the President’s office and the Freetown Mayor.
Wilsona is working with the Lives and Livelihoods Fund (LLF) in The Gambia, supporting the Ministry of Agriculture's Project Management Unit for the Regional Rice Value Chain Development Project. The project seeks to transform the lives of smallholder farmers, the private sector, and the country as a whole by enhancing agriculture, a key source of livelihoods in The Gambia.
As the Technical Lead at the Directorate of Science, Technology and Innovation in Sierra Leone, Wilsona worked with the President’s office to develop the country’s first Human Capital Development (HCD) Incubator. The incubator exists to generate and test innovative ideas for solving the nation’s greatest HCD challenges in health, education, and agriculture. Before Wilsona left to begin graduate school, she raised an additional $1M to ensure continuity of the Incubator’s Education Innovation Challenge (EIC), a promising government program that involves piloting creative ideas in schools across Sierra Leone to improve learning outcomes. She also worked on Sierra Leone’s COVID response in 2020 and Ebola response in 2015, where she led on the establishment of effective data systems to inform both response strategies.
