Kaylee Myhre Errecaborde DVM Policy PhD candidate, is a veterinarian and policy scholar working to change the way health researchers and practitioners mobilize their skills for global change. Kaylee supports health workers to situate their work within the context of global policies and frameworks (e.g. Global Health Security Agenda, International Health Regulations, etc.) while remaining locally relevant and development oriented. As the Workforce Planning Lead for the USAID One Health Workforce project, and as the Lead for Policy and Partnership at the Center for Animal Health and Food Safety, Kaylee supports health projects in the US, Asia, Eastern & Western Africa and Latin America. She previously worked for the US Congress on global health and food security issues with both the US House Foreign Affairs Committee and later on the US Senate Homeland Security Committee. Her focus on policy began during her graduate work for the US Department of Agriculture in Washington, DC, the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and the Institute of Agriculture Technology in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Kaylee has developed invaluable global perspective and cultural competence from professional work and travel in over 25 countries.
