Victoria Quinn in Bangladesh
Have you ever heard the saying, "You are what you eat? In working for Helen Keller International, I've come to realize that this simple adage can mean different things to different people. In America, we often say it when we're talking about losing weight. In developing countries, this simple phrase becomes a powerful reminder of the life and death impact nutrition can have on the lives of millions of people, especially young children. No one understands the importance of nutrition better than Dr. Victoria Quinn, HKI's Senior Vice President of Programs. I met with Victoria recently to learn more about her background in nutrition and her views on the importance of nutrition on world health.

16 years in Africa ending with a PhD: Victoria earned her Bachelor's in Nutritional Science from UC Berkeley and her MSc in International Nutrition with a minor in Medical Parasitology from Cornell. She then headed to Nairobi to work as Cornell's program coordinator for 9 years on a joint nutrition program with UNICEF in eastern and southern Africa. Later she moved to Malawi and afterwards to Ghana with her husband and infant son. In Accra she took five years off to enjoy this family time as well as earn her PhD from Wageningen University in the Netherlands. The PhD entailed writing a book on the political economy of malnutrition and hunger in Malawi over the period from 1936 to 1990. After 16 years straight living in Africa, she finally relocated back to the U.S. in 1998 moving to Washington, D.C. where she worked in promoting broad scale infant and young child feeding programs with the DC based Academy for Educational Development. She then joined Helen Keller International in her current role in late 2006.
