My name is
Charity Wanjiku Nyaga
I am a sister, daughter and friend, and also an aunty to two lovely twin girls (and several others out there). I am a firm believer in God and I draw my confidence from knowing that God’s got it…everything! I am a resilient girl who is never too shy to ask for help when needed.
I love to travel and explore the world, find peace and balance in running, make deep connections with cool humans and I love freshly brewed coffee. Whilst Forbes has recognized it too, I describe myself as a shining star and a work-in-progress all at the same time. Read up my thoughts on women in leadership and finding a place at the table here.
Architect and Project Manager
I am a motivated, results-focused, transformative Architect and Project Manager with expertise in all aspects of leading projects in the building, construction, and energy industries. Adept at facilities and design management, feasibility studies, BIM, mixed-use development and affordable housing concepts.
As an outstanding independent consultant, I also work in partnership with other thought leaders in the same fields to deliver projects that satisfy my clients. Confidently delivering projects on time, within budget and of high quality.
