I am a native of Jamaica, hailing from Kingston and have lived in Canada for almost 50 years.

Married to my soulmate Barry for 25 years who is my rock and pillar. I am a mother of two children, Andre (33) and Felecia (31) and grandmother of Shellyce 14 and Joavin 1 year with one on the way.

Recently graduated with Honors from Trios College, Brampton Campus as a Community Service Worker, I am blessed to be working part-time at the Elizabeth Fry Society of Peel-Halton, Half-Way House as a Support Peer Counselor for women who are in conflict with the law.

My volunteer work started with the Jamaica Visionaries Association Inc. in 1998, I was always passionate about helping the less fortunate in Jamaica and also here in Canada. As a member of the organization I was part of the outreach committee and played an integral part with the fundraising activities like the annual walk-a-ton and other fundraising events to acquire funds for the schools in Jamaica. My event planning background and beliefs in community collaboration has led me to several volunteer prospects and leadership roles within the GTA communities.

My volunteerism has led me to work with an immense cultural capacity, in 2011 I started volunteering with the Olive Branch of Hope, an organization that caters to the women of African/Caribbean descent who are survivors of breast cancer or women who are currently fighting breast cancer, my primary role is working with the fundraising committee organizing brunches, dinners and other fundraising ventures.

Because of my passion for volunteering, giving back and helping the community I was motivated to support a number of other organizations where I am able to provide assistance and give back in one way or the other, whether it is by fundraising, organizing events, selling tickets for events, donating door prizes or designing centre pieces for the dinner tables.

Over the years I have also supported other organization such as the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus Foundation and Canadian Cancer Society by participating annually in their Walk-A-Tons.

My strong belief in commendable work ethics, excellence, achievement, outreach, support and giving back, became the foundation and motivation for my volunteerism. Because of my tenacity I received awards, acknowledgment and recognitions.

As a grounded spiritual woman who always give thanks every day for my blessings and gifts that enables me to serve, help and give back to people in our community, it brings great joy to me knowing that I can make a difference in someone life by just giving of my time.
