I was born on the beautiful Caribbean island of Trinidad and spent much of my childhood in Trinidad and St. Vincent before my family immigrated to the East coast of the United States. After finishing my undergraduate degree in Ithaca NY, my husband and my daughter and I moved to New Mexico where we have now lived for over 14 years. It has been a great journey raising three children and enjoying the state of NM. I enjoy the outdoors, music, traveling, and learning about cultures from around the world.
