Candidate's perspective

I have willingly embraced the opportunity to serve my constituency by heeding their call to stand as candidate for minister of parliament of the Wesley constituency.

Growing up in the village of Wesley, I attended the Wesley Government School, the Dominica Grammar school and subsequent the St. Andrews Secondary school, where I completed my secondary education.

I hold a degree in property and casualty claims adjusting from the American Institute for CPCU/ Insurance Institute of America, and diplomas from Crawford Learning and Resource Center in Atlanta Georgia in the field of liability claims adjusting and in automobile appraisal. I also hold certificates in fire surveying and claims condition as well as motor claims management from the St Lucia Insurance Institute.

My career has included working as an agricultural extension officer for the Wesley/ Woodford Hill district with the North East agricultural program before gaining employment with American Life Insurance Company and Life of Barbados as a life underwriter. I went on as manager of DOM waters in Antigua, and was later employed as supervisor at Insurance Consultants Ltd agents for American Home Insurance Co. Nemwil and Barbados Fire and General.

I was appointed managing director for Mc Breadston Foods (Perkys) and is now a director of The Resource Management Service and the claims manager of First Domestic Insurance Company Ltd. I have served as general secretary to the Tipper Truckers Association of Dominica and was involved in a number of groups at the Wesley Catholic Church and the St Andrews High School. I also chaired the General Insurance Institute of Dominica, which brought the largest group of underwriters for a conference of the Caribbean, to the shores of Dominica.

I embrace any opportunity to care for others, which is what fuels my commitment to restoring the pride and respect which the people of Wesley and Woodford Hill once cherished.
