A Framework for the Equitable Caribbean Blue Economy

This is me

I am an award-winning Caribbean based ocean advocate, recognized by the Ocean Awards 2020 as a leader on marine conservation issues within the Caribbean through my Non-Profit Organization Fish 'N Fins Inc.

My transitional 20 years from employee at a law firm, to eco-fashion freelancer, to serial entrepreneur, consultant, ocean advocate, and sustainability ambassador means I have A LOT to share and I would love to work with you!


brand building

I will enhance your brand positioning and ensure you are
front of mind with decision makers and key industry
stake-holders in the Caribbean.  I can also support you in developing new business opportunities and generate leads with key stakeholders across the

speaking & workshops

I run workshops, moderate panels, and give talks on topics related to advocacy, entrepreneurship, innovation, sustainability and an equitable blue economy.


My work as an events speaker and workshop facilitator has taken me to academic institutions, global youth advocacy groups, local community groups, and the World Academy of Art and Science (WAAS)-United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG).


Contact me for more information about the early engagement of youth in ocean stewardship, and supporting long term youth commitment to marine ecosystems.


I offer consulting services that design marine education programs for schools, governments, and NGOs. You can be inspired by my work at Fish ‘N Fins Inc. – Global Ocean Awards Finalist 2020

Over the past 10 years, I have worked with scientific and local communities engaging and immersing island communities in ocean conservation, blue economy, and climate change.

There is a lot of work to do here, and I’m looking forward to doing it with you!


INNOVATION - I help develop relationships, prototyping tools and training workshops with small island communities–increasing their  capacity to implement and maintain oceanography and ocean exploration programs of their own.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP - I provide ongoing support for teams developing projects /campaigns to stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation in island communities, specializing in innovations that demonstrate that both sustainability as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion are at their core.

JUSTICE - I also design environmental justice campaigns; while identifying  opportunities for longer-term strategies for organizations to engage in conservation management and reform.



I advise companies, NGOs and governments on conservation initiatives
and campaigns
