Bethany Eigenfeld

Country Director - Syria and Dohuk Operations Coordinator

I have a BA in Islamic Studies from DePaul University and a MA in Food Studies (Food Security and Sustainable Food Systems with a concentration in Humanitarian Development) from The American University of Rome.

I have worked as an intern at the UN World Food Programme for six months and have come directly to MH from there. This is therefore my first year in the humanitarian field. With WFP I worked on market and trader assessments for food security. 

I have trained in disaster relief, peace-building, food aid, emergency livelihoods and emergency medicine.
