As a Program Director at our Nairobi Studio, Larrissa develops strategies and frameworks that help guide the design work to a clear direction. She works closely with partners, nurturing relationships that help teams better understand their business, operations, and challenges.
Larrissa transitioned from a career in advertising and media investment management into a role that advanced the insight driven communication and marketing strategy for Triggerise, enabling adolescent girls access to information and sexual reproductive health products and services. At Triggerise, she also led the design research in informal settlements in Nairobi, Mozambique and Malawi to address issues around the uptake and re-use of DMPA-SC.
Larrissa received her B.A. in Psychology from United States International University-Africa in Psychology. When she shuts off her laptop, she seeks calm in archery or an energetic boost by hosting cook outs and album listening parties with her tribe.
