I am a proud Jamaican who possesses an active social conscience. I have used my position as an industry leader to highlight some of the major social issues facing Jamaicans and have been privileged to work alongside some of the country’s foremost subject matter experts in crafting strategies to address these challenges. 
My philanthropic footsteps have led me to…
  • serve vulnerable women in underserved communities through Dress for Success Jamaica, an organisation that provides support to women through wardrobe assistance and self-development programmes.
  • and at the Jamaica Cancer Society where I advanced the organisation as a Centre of Excellence through the development of key strategies such as Research, Advocacy for public policies, the procurement of equipment, increased access to cancer screening and treatment, and the development of regional and international partnerships to advance the mission of the organisation.
  • I also serve on the Past Students Executive of my alma mater, St. Jago High School and was honoured by the Past Students’ Association in 2019 with the Outstanding Alumni Achievement Award for unstinting service to Jamaica.
  • I currently serve on the Board of the Rotary Club of St. Andrew.
Why Rotary?
From an early age, I was influenced by my mother whose spirit of philanthropy and unflappable dedication to shaping the minds of some of the nation’s children and to community development knew no bounds.  I was blessed to be born in a family of hard-working women who modelled strength of character, courage and sacrifice - women I could emulate.  Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self” was inculcated in me from my formative years.
I joined Rotary for two reasons.
  1. I wanted to access the networking opportunity among business leaders who could assist me in advancing the mission of the Jamaica Cancer Society.
  1. I wanted to build on my commitment to community development in a more relaxed and fun way other than fighting a disease that claims the lives of so many.
I deeply appreciate the values of Family, Fellowship and Diversity that exist within the institution of Rotary.  The Rotary Club of St. Andrew is a melting pot of talents and personalities who are passionate about giving back to Jamaica and advancing economic and social development.  In this classroom I have gained so much academically and socially and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to serve alongside these honourable men and women.
My Vocation
In June 2020, I decided to pivot and pursue studies to become a Life Coach.  I enrolled in Erickson Coaching International in Toronto for seven months and my life has not been the same!
It was Rumi who said, “Yesterday I was clever, I changed the World.  Today I am wise, so I am changing Myself”.
Self-Discovery is an important element of a Life Coach’s learning experience.  The more we understand about ourselves, the more authentic and empowered we become.  Finding inner peace and clarity about the direction of my life resulted from this classroom I shared with 10 other men and women from Canada and Europe who were also on a journey of change.
As a Certified Life Coach, I provide my clients with a safe space of trust and commitment where there are no judgement or biases. The coaching sessions are solution focussed and through the use of specific core competencies as approved by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), I provide support in the following areas:
  • Goal setting
  • Developing strategies to increase productivity and performance 
  • Overcoming obstacles, fears, and insecurities
  • Transforming and strengthening relationships
  • Achieving value and finding balance
Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen described health as "One of the most important conditions of human life and a critically significant constituent of human capabilities which we have reason to value".  It is one of my goals to use my vocation as a Life Coach to advance Rotary’s mission on disease prevention by educating and inspiring Rotarians to make healthy lifestyle choices to reduce their risk to chronic diseases such as diabetes.
My Philosophy
I live my life according to three main principles.
  • I am responsible for the choices I make and the resulting consequences.
  • Remaining in a space of gratitude equip me to love myself and love others around me. 
  • There is absolutely no reason to feel defeated when a goal is not realised, if I keep moving forward purposefully.  Never letting a good life keep up a great one!
