Annah Margarita Montesa is a registered nurse in the Philippines pursuing public health with a Master Degree in Occupational Health.
Annah has come a long way from wearing the white nurse’s uniform in a hospital to the red branded shirt of Save the Children working as a Project Officer in a community of 1.6 million.
Currently, she is the technical focal person for a maternal, newborn, child health and nutrition project with focus on the first 1,000 days of life. Through the support of Johnson & Johnson, the project aims to reach 15,000 beneficiaries, comprised of pregnant women and parents with children aged 0-2 years old, as well as children under 5 years.
She also commits her time for yoga to calm the mind and motivate the body to fuel her passion in helping the marginalized.
“As a change maker, I innovate in my work and take different approaches in different situations. Taking the road less travelled as a nurse, I now find myself in public health specializing in occupational health and safety. I will change the world through my contribution in developing health programs within the workforce. Driving safety, health and wellbeing to create high job satisfaction and increased productivity.”
