Jacqueline Deelstra

Technology for Development Associate at Creative Associates International


I am international development professional who recently relocated from Washington, DC to Seattle. From here I am working remotely for the DC-based international development consulting firm Creative Associates International. Creative implements education, youth, economic growth, civil society and political transitions projects primarily on behalf of USAID. For Creative I support business development and advise project teams on the integration of ICT solutions that can improve program efficiency and effectiveness. In the past I have worked for NGOs in Senegal, Ecuador, Benin and Tanzania. I have a master's degree in development economics and NGO management from the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy at Tufts University. I am very happy to finally be back home in Seattle and look forward to engaging in the local international development community.
