Hi! I'm Nana!

I am the co-founder of Fourth Phase after-birth care boxes. I’m a social entrepreneur and seasoned humanitarian with a strong commitment to advocating adequate and accessible health care for all under-resourced women, children, and families. Fifteen years prior, after my dad suffered a heart attack in Ghana, I founded African Health Now (AHN), a global public health organization, to provide information and access to primary and maternity health care to women, children, and families living across Sub-Saharan Africa.
Before AHN, I had a successful career in media, working for women’s titles such as HoneySuedeEssence, and Seventeen, as an Assistant and Bookings Editor, respectively.

After founding AHN, I transitioned into the non-profit sector to better understand how to run a non-profit. I worked for companies such as the New York Mission Society and The Clinton Global Initiative Foundation as their events, marketing, and community relations manager. It paid off.

To date, my work with AHN has serviced over 30,000 people in Ghana and Nigeria who are in need of basic health services readily available in America.

Over the years, I was recognized for my philanthropic efforts: World Remit named me as one of their 2020 Top Influential Africans; the Center for Social Innovation awarded me their 2018 Agent of Change Fellow award; The National Council of Ghanaian Associations named me their 2017 Humanitarian of Year; in 2016 I was given a New York State Senate Proclamation for Commitment to Health Advocacy, and in 2009 I received the Andrew Heiskell Humanitarian Award by Time Inc.
I speak English and Twi, the latter a language native to Ghana, and my husband and I are the proud parents of a beautiful, eight-year-old girl. When I am not working on Fourth Phase, I am in DIY heaven making balloon garlands, resurfacing furniture, and watching HGTV.
