Nash graduated from Duke University with degrees in Global Health and International Comparative Studies, and a certificate in French Studies. While at Duke, she received grants totaling $20,000 to conduct in-depth field research on maternal health, child mental health and Female Genital Cutting (FGC) in Togo, India and Kenya respectively. Her honors thesis critiquing NGO-led anti-FGC interventions in Samburu, Kenya received the highest distinction from Duke’s Global Health Institute.
Before attending Duke, Nash spent two years at the African Leadership Academy (ALA), an institution that seeks to transform Africa by identifying, developing, and connecting future generations of leaders from across the continent. At ALA, Nash supported the ‘I am Kenyan’ campaign, aimed at bringing together different ethnic groups in Kenya to prevent a repeat of the 2007-08 post-election violence.Connect on LinkedIn
