Mom of Two
Behind every strong independent woman lies a broken little girl who had to learn how to get back up and never to depend on anyone. - Unknown
So what was I missing?
I believe the answer to this rested deep within my heart as I truly never found the one thing that was driving me to be successful. In fact, I was tired, drained and helpless most of the time. It was not until I started questioning why I felt so empty and confused that I realized that I was not doing the things that really made me happy. I struggled for years and years in this rut. When I finally stepped off the corporate bandwagon, I started doing the things that gave me happiness and freedom to be who I truly am. I was able to use my creativity and started my own small business. The freedom from corporate still did not bring the level of happiness I truly desired. I was still searching.
I had invested time in money in pursuing my creativity, then came the dreaded pandemic. With all that going on around me I started searching for and found the things that made me happy. This helped me to avoid the anxiety and stress that came with the pandemic.
To me, this pandemic was a blessing in disguise. I regained my footing through exercise and writing. It just happened, this time I found more of my AUTHENTIC SELF.
Instead of letting the pandemic get to me, I reinvented myself again, embrace all the downfalls and my new life emerged. I have found my place in this amazing world.
I am living proof that nothing can stop you from pursuing your goals despite the challenges one may face. I am truly and now unapologetic about being my AUTHENTIC SELF.
The girl that loved to dance, skip, teach, dream was back. I found the peace in the stillness of ocean and beauty in the earth that surrounds me.
I also found happiness and the joy of unconditional love. It was like I finally woke up to see what I have been missing all along.
I finally understood that happiness comes from within ourselves and it is not created from things. It is a feeling deep inside that brings you joy when you remove everything else that holds you back from experiencing life.

A bit about my professional background...
Changing a career is never easy, particularly when it’s something unrelated to your career path. Coming from a background in Finance, it was no easy task as I am also a Certified Professional Accountant (CPA) and holds a Master of Science Degree with Merit in Financial Services Management.
Although this was my chosen career, I was very unhappy for a long time doing the things that I thought I needed to do to be successful. After all, we were taught that the glass ceiling is where most women should aim for in the corporate world. As a woman struggling for success, I encountered many stumbling blocks and even though I managed to get through and over them it still was not enough. I was in a field which was primarily dominated by men and also trying to balance my personal life at the same time.
I left my homeland to finish my education and to pursue better opportunities in Canada. This allowed me to worked at some major corporations before moving back to the Caribbean. I moved across the Caribbean in pursuit of the dream that many aspired for. I had a great family, a decent job and I was making it as many would say.
