I joined the Rotary Club of Brampton South in the late winter of 2013. Rotary allows me to connect the world of 1.3 million Rotarians that does good both in my local community and internationally. Since my school and university days, I have had a passion for Rotary and organized Quiz Competition for organizations like Rotary, Inner Wheel, etc. By joining Rotary, I had a great decision in my life, it has changed me and how I see the world.

I am a wife and a mother of four children. I am Jamaican, a graduate of the University of the West Indies with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, along with further training and experience as a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA). This formal training has equipped me with the ability to critically evaluate the goals and objectives of our club and understand the responsibility we have as a service organization in supporting our community and the residents on an ongoing basis, especially during this pandemic. In honoring our commitments, we were able to support our partners during the crisis.
