I'm so glad you're here.

I am a creative writer whose work focuses on mental health, education, healthcare, gender equality, community development, faith, and Caribbean lifestyle/culture. 

For more than a decade, I have worked with transformative brands in the Caribbean region, the United States, and the United Kingdom in the areas of public relations, marketing communications, social media strategy, and strong storytelling. I have worked in the fields of higher education, healthcare, finance, and government relations.

To this day, I am still curious about incorporating fresh ideas and unpacking meaningful angles in stories and campaigns. I still get excited about championing people and brands that are changing our communities. I still am focused on elevating the heart of every story, feature, and campaign.

Currently, I am a communications consultant using integrated communications to lead global change. I am looking forward to working with more clients who are taking care of our communities in one way or another.
