I was born and raised in the Land of the Hummingbird, Birthplace of the Steelpan, Home to the greatest Carnival on Earth, the beautiful twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. I grew up with an appreciation for the enjoyment of life and a love for the beauty of diversity. As a proud American, I love my life in the most amazing country in the world, and I'm committed to giving America my best.
Married to my best friend, mentor, and coach, I am totally in love with my amazing husband of 15 years....and counting! Together - we explore all the beauty this wonderful life has to offer, and spread real happy vibes all over the world!
Over the past 25 years, I've advised Prime Ministers, Ambassadors, CEOs, and Young Leaders from around the world, and helped them to navigate serious challenges and volatile situations. My strategic communications expertise, including political campaign management, media relations, speech writing, advertising, and message development, is always grounded in one central truth - that the most effective messaging is AUTHENTIC, because people love authenticity. Just be YOU!
Together with my amazing husband, Luis, I founded and own CariBeat - a company that produces Caribbean-style gourmet products. All handcrafted and made with fresh fruit and vegetables, CariBeat's signature PEPPA products bring Caribbean warmth and happiness to the tables of our consumers around the world.

I was raised and mentored by two of the most beautiful women in the world - my mom and my mother-in-law. These two phenomenal women taught me about the power of the human touch. Here's what I know for sure:
the HUMAN TOUCH - love, warmth, laughter, empathy, and generosity - is the MOST powerful tool for solving any problem. If we invest more time in BEING HUMAN and teaching others HOW TO BE HUMAN, the world would be safer, healthier, happier, and more prosperous.
My Purpose is to use multimedia platforms to encourage, inspire, and support people around the world to ENJOY LIFE! No matter who we are, where we live, what we've done, or how old we are - WE ALL DESERVE TO ENJOY OUR LIVES! Making a commitment to enjoying our lives sometimes requires an entirely new mindset, a new environment, new friends, a fresh start or a whole new life path. Whatever your reason or season - THE ENJOYMENT OF THIS AMAZING JOURNEY OF LIFE IS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT!
