Kaylee Myhre Errecaborde, DVM PhD, is a policy researcher and a veterinarian. Kaylee supports health workers to situate their technical work within the context of global policies and frameworks (e.g. Global Health Security Agenda, International Health Regulations-Joint External Evaluations, Sustainable Development Goals, SPS Agreement, among others). As a Technical Consultant with the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland, she supports member countries to build capacity for collaborative, One Health preparedness and response for zoonotic disease and antimicrobial resistance. As faculty at the University of Minnesota she served as the Workforce Planning Lead for the USAID One Health Workforce project, and also leads policy and trade capacity programs at the Center for Animal Health and Food Safety. Kaylee continues to support health, security, and trade projects in the US, Asia, Eastern & Western Africa and Latin America. She previously worked for the US Congress on global health, border health, international trade, 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 WHO in Geneva, Switzerland and the Institute of Agriculture Technology in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Kaylee has developed an invaluable global perspective and cultural competence from professional work and travel in over 30 countries.
