A poster featuring the person's image and the answer to two profile questions.

Where is home/where did you grow up?

Home is Dominica, the beautiful nature isle of the Caribbean.

Proudest accomplishment while at the University of Rochester?

I had the opportunity to present my science at the NERM ACS Conference!

What do you like to do when not in the department?

When I'm not in the department I enjoy singing on Sundays with the St. Monica Gospel Choir!

An inspiring book/movie /show? We are really curious as to why!

That movie would be Blue Miracle. It has taught me that no matter how bad the situation may seem there is always something good which can come out of it.

A holiday that rocks? Care to tell us why?

In my opinion the best holiday is the Independence season in Dominica. It is the time in which we celebrate our rich heritage with music, dancing, tasty dishes and numerous colorful events such as Heritage Day, Creole Day, and Market Day.

Fun fact or quote:

Dominica is #1 on the Forbes list of places to visit for 2023!

Ask me about…

Playing volleyball or Netball!

The goal of this initiative is to highlight the diversity of backgrounds and perspectives in the Department of Chemistry and help our community develop stronger connections and synergies. You can think of these spotlights as the beginning of a conversation that we very much hope you will continue in the corridors of Hutch and beyond.
