When she is not at work, you will find her spending time with her family and friends, traveling to a sunny destination, dancing the night away, playing mas in a carnival, and when she gets an extra minute, she fills her time finding ways to fulfill her creative side by making costumes, refinishing furniture or finding an event to plan. She volunteers as a member of the Grenada Cultural Association of B.C.
