Regina is one of our Student Analysts, working on the center’s engagement efforts both internally and externally. She is also supporting the center’s work on Pay for Success and thinking about smarter governments for social impact.
Regina is a rising junior in Georgetown’s School of Nursing and Health Studies majoring in Global Health with a minor in Economics. On campus, Regina is a consultant for Innovo Consulting, a student-run non-profit consulting group that serves DC start-ups and non-profits. She worked with the Society of Children Orphaned by Aids (SOCOBA), a DC based non-profit that is constructing a youth education center in Mabule, Botswana for children orphaned by Aids. She assisted SOCOBA in the development of their business and growth strategy, and devised a fundraising plan for them to commence the construction of the center. She is also the Vice President of the African Society of Georgetown.
At the center, Regina hopes to learn more about financing mechanisms that reap social benefits, such as Pay for Success contracts, social impact bonds, development impact bonds, results based financing among others and how these mechanisms can be effectively used in the financing of health care delivery in low to middle income countries. She finds the work the Beeck Center does in thinking about how innovation and outcome driven processes can lead to better results and impact very exciting.
