Candidate's Perspective:

Over ten years ago, I joined a movement to bring sustainable development to the constituency of Salybia and its environs – an area collectively known as the Kalinago Territory. Today, the struggle for economic freedom and justice for the people of my constituency has reached a tipping point. I stand firmly as a candidate to represent my people in Dominica’s House of Assembly in the 2015 election.

I attended the Salybia Primary School and St. Andrews Secondary School, before pursuing a certificate in Education from the University of the West Indies. I went on to obtain an advanced diploma in Human Resource Planning and Development and a Certificate in Physical Education and Sports from the Macolin Sports Institute in Bien, Switzerland. I was awarded a Fullbright Faculty Development Scholarship in 2011, enabling me to pursue a Master’s Degree in Economic Policy.

My career has included teaching sports and mathematics at the primary and secondary school level, economics at the Dominica State College, and working with the government’s ministry of sports, in addition to representing my community in a number of sporting competitions.

In 2005 I was appointed senator in the House of Assembly, a position I maintained until 2011 when I went to pursue my graduate degree. As a member of parliament I will work at the highest level of government to boost agriculture, tourism and education in the Kalinago Territory.
