"I have spent the better part of my 32 years in the Foreign Service trying to resolve conflicts and promoting development and understanding of the United States in many parts of Africa. During my two years as Deputy Director of the State Department’s Office of Southern African Affairs, I worked to keep Zambia from being drawn into the then-widening conflict in neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo. I was also the coordinator of our efforts to engage the member states of the Southern African Development Community as a group on security cooperation, regional water resource management and in arresting Zimbabwe’s slide toward arbitrary rule."
