After my dads passing my world collapsed. I had no idea what I would do. The company I worked for had new management and they said I had to retire my position to attend my dads funeral. My husband said leave the job if you are not allowed time to grieve and I did that for an extended period. I grieved 2 losses. So when i blended to soothe my pain and researched to make the days go faster I had no ide that Skin Ethiks would be birthed.
Skin Ethiks consumes an indelible portion of my life. It’s my lifestyle and now many more are engaging into total transformation. In two short years I’ve had the opportunity to be affiliated and support many charities like the Jericho Road and Love Shouldn’t Hurt Domestic Violence Organizations, been honored at Unlock Your Dreams 2015 and Best for NYC 2015, Mentored by John Maxwell coaches and BNP Paribas Bank. Host amzing events and empower women with Sisters of Excellence and Mastermind Entrepreneur Exchange. Another great accomplishment is to be Board Secretary of the Caribbean American Leadership Foundation and working in tandem with WhereItzAt Magazine, both sponsors for the Business Innovators and Game Changers Awards.
Sharing as the skin/beauty columnist has been quite a challenge for me to explore and identify my skills. It has brought me some amazing opportunities and I have gained knowledge from some prominent trail blazer intellectuals. Friendships have been formed and my metamorphosis is continuous. I am entirely grateful!

Teeing up a fantastic future!
Moments Golf Club continuously drives great shots with the youth in our community! On Tuesday July 17th, 2016 I had the privilege to attend the Moments Golf Club Annual Golf Tournament representing WhereItzAt magazine. For almost a decade Moments Golf Club has been awarding scholarships to young men and women, sowing hope and encouragement that aspirations are worth the effort and will always be rewarded. The weather was immaculate and the guys dress code for golfing was impressive. To put it simply, I can be out on the green every day. What’s better than being one with nature, enjoying a calm atmosphere and hitting a ball off the tee all day long to implement scholarships for college graduates all day long?
Oasis in the City
Owning a small garden or homestead is common in the Caribbean and a necessity in the United States, especially where there is limited space. The Monsanto and GMO reign is prevalent so we cannot guarantee what exactly is in our foods, how fresh it is or even how substantial it will be after modification and storage. We consume wax, ethylene gases and formaldehyde as a new normal. Planting our own fruits and vegetables for self-sustenance should be mandatory.
