First, think. Second, believe. Third, dream. Finally, dare.”

  • Achievements: With a Teacher of English as a Second Language certification recognized by TESL Ontario and TESL Canada, I have worked internationally as a teacher for over 20 years. I have operated several hotel chains in the Caribbean and lead projects for hospitality training, including strong involvement and support as a Subject Matter Expert for Tourism HR (former Canadian Tourism Human Resources Council). I am also a Certified Hospitality Trainer by the AH&LA (American Hotel & Lodging Association). 
  • Extra-curriculars: Aside from my teaching experience, I work as an international consultant for Human Resources Development within Canada and the Caribbean. My hobbies include road-tripping, and playing badminton. In my free time, I also practice Journaling.
  • #HansonHighlight: I am passionate about learning and teaching, and I am pleased to be a part of the Hanson family for more than 10 years! My favorite thing about Hanson College is that we care and believe in the success of others. I love the working environment, where, on a daily basis, you experience and practice inclusivity, respect and diversity.
