I was raised in a rural village named Tabaquite on the edge of the Navet Dam in Trinidad and Tobago and found my calling in the water sector very early in life. I’ve completed tertiary studies in Water Resources Management and Technology while engaged in academic work in the field of Agriculture, Climate Change and Rural Development and Planning. Currently, I am finishing up a MSc. Project Management. The last 17 years of my life was spent working at the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA). I have also spent this time participating in the Water and Sanitation sector around the Caribbean region. Eventually in 2016, I was elected to serve as the Secretary on the Executive Council at the CWWA. Through this organization, I have worked on policy development, governance, capacity building mechanisms and various other project for the Caribbean Region in water, waste management and climate change and resilience. Outside the water sector, I have a passion for agriculture, youth development, gender equality, body positivity and Caribbean culture.
