She worked with Islamic Relief USA, where she gained an extensive understanding of Middle East conflict and international humanitarian issues. This prompted her interest in Conflict and Peace studies.

She completed the bulk of her research and field work in Somaliland, working with the Academy for Peace and Development, a think tank developing and sustaining peace in the area.
