ARE YOU WHERE you’ve always wanted to be?

I try in life to always relish the moment, live in the now. So I’d rather say I’m where I’m supposed to be.

What is your biggest professional challenge?

Being a perfectionist, sometimes I’m a little too hard on myself but I’m working on it.

What is your biggest life challenge?

Encouraging myself and those around me to practise self-love and constantly remember how blessed we truly are.

When you look to the future, what do you see?

Spontaneous vacations and The Virtual Assistant as a household name.

What is your favourite pastime?

I love to read.

What is your favourite meal?

A good old bowl of Bajan soup.

On Saturday nights, where are you likely to be?

Curled up in bed with a book and a glass of wine.

What upsets you the most?


What is your guiding philosophy?

Nothing changes, if nothing changes.

If you had the chance to manage Barbados for a day, what would you do?

Remove taxes from everything, give Bajans a well deserved break.
