Portsmouth Secondary School, Dominica State College and Hugh Wooding Law School.
Former attorney in government of Dominica in 2006; former legal advisor to the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank and currently practices at a private firm.
I have always felt a need to give back to the people of the Paix Bouche constituency for the values and experiences they have instilled in me, shaping me into the woman I am today. My goal as minister of parliament will be to focus on the development of youth and to re-establish the traditions, ambition and drive for economic independence that once existed in this community.
Growing up in Dominica, I was very active with youth groups and spent a lot of time learning from the members of my family and community. By witnessing their hard work, I learned to apply myself and focus steadily on my education. I attended the Portsmouth Secondary School, Dominica State College and later, the Hugh Wooding Law School. I have always treasured my upbringing, so when I was called to the bar in 2006, part of my speech highlighted my desire to contribute to my community and to give back in whatever way I can.
Through grit and determination, I gained a position as an attorney with the government of Dominica in 2006, and a few years later, the opportunity to work at the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank as a legal officer. I now practice law with a private firm.
I am painfully aware of the stagnation in the Paix Bouche constituency and recognize that it is time to take a stand to be resilient and make changes for ourselves. This is my home, it is the place that has given me my happiest days, and I therefore intend to be proactive, to inspire change and help propel growth for my people. By May, 2015, I hope to be sworn in as minister of parliament to represent my constituency in Dominica’s House of Assembly.
