As Senior Partnerships Lead for IDEO.org's Global Health Practice, Cady shapes relationships to imagine a world where everyone—regardless of who they are or where they live—has access to the services they need to live a healthy, vibrant life.
Prior to joining IDEO.org, a global public health field study took Cady to KHANA, the largest HIV/AIDS NGO in Cambodia. There she revised KHANA's Monitoring and Evaluation guidelines, led qualitative research with youth who self-identify as 'entertainment workers,' and consulted on HIV/AIDS innovations with PSI and FHI360. Previous to her work in Cambodia Cady was an HIV Peer Test Counselor, a clinical volunteer in San Francisco General Hospital's Level 1 Trauma Center, and spent nearly a decade in the bean-to-bar craft chocolate industry.
Cady holds a BA in Psychology with Honors, from the University of California, Santa Cruz, an MPH in Global Health from Touro University, California. Outside of work Cady is a mom, a jewelry designer, and is in pursuit of the perfect 100% chocolate bar.
