I am versatile, a team player, result-oriented, focused, computer literate and able to surmount any challenges that I come across due to my self-driven nature. Despite my employment at the Judiciary, I have continued to be engaged in arbitration and ADR trainings as a guest lecture and tutor in various fora and participated in the drafting of Mediation Rules that have been enacted for the High Court of Kenya Commercial & Admiralty and Family Divisions.
