Head, Asset Management, Caribbean Banking
Personal & Commercial Banking
My job is to oversee the management of or clients’ wealth. What I like best about this job is the fact that no two days are ever the same. I like the challenge of knowing that no matter what I do I can never be perfect at my job - this keeps me interested and motivated.
Balancing family, intellectual pursuits as well as a full-time job has always been difficult for me. I get through it by taking one day at a time and giving myself permission to be tired, sad, angry or whatever particular emotion I need to feel at the time. Once I do this, I am then able to get over it and move on.
Find your passion. It’s hard to fail at something you love to do so take the time necessary to discover what that is.
I am passionate about so many things but at heart I am a very nurturing person so I think I would work with children or animals in some capacity, perhaps a teacher or pediatrician/veterinarian.
Definitely shopping is my #1 hobby but I also enjoy and appreciate just having time to think.
Both my grandmothers never had the opportunity to get much past a primary education, however they were both innately so intelligent, bright, lively, talented. I always wondered what they could have been if they had had an opportunity to develop their skills and I think this sense of loss I felt on their behalf made me determined to make the most of my talents, my opportunities, my time.
I think it is important to be brave and trust your instincts. I think women by nature tend to spend a lot of time questioning their greatness and usually this just results in wasted time and effort. Accept the fact that you are great and spend your time and effort determining what you want to do with it.
