I am a creative, energetic, inspired and determined woman of Trini-Niger descent. I am a business woman, a writer and an development economist by training.
I am Author of a book "Spirited Women: Lessons in Living." Self-published 1997, reprinted 2005. Currently writing 2nd book to be published 2010.
I worked as an development economist for 6 years, firstly, three years in Namibia working for the Ministry of Trade and Industry, then a further 3 years working for a private consultancy firm based in the Docklands, but working on assignments in South Africa, Barbados, The Bahamas and Jamaica. I then worked for a couple of years as an independent consultant helping small start-up businesses, writing business plans, market research and business organisation planning.
By chance in 2002 came into contact with a fantastic natural body care product- Nubian Heritage form the USA and became determined to market it in the UK....so Nubian Natural was born.
