Get to know Vivian

Vivian realized early in her career that ensuring the food her community eats was safe, was a critical, and often ignored issue in Africa. She is the Founder and Managing Principal of Food Health Systems Advisory Africa (FHS Africa), which works towards improving food safety systems. Trained as food scientist, she worked for a time in quality control and quickly realized that there were few real protections in place for the public. She started an online resource in 2012 called the SafeFoodNigeria Initiative, which has now evolved into an advisory firm, FHS Africa. She also serves as a project director at Young Bright Minds Africa (YBM Africa). Prior to this, Vivian served as a health promotion lead at Nigeria's premier health insurance firm Hygeia HMO, where she advised corporate clients on disease prevention.  She is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in International Health and Tropical Medicine at the University of Oxford, UK as an ExxonMobil scholar.
