"To that end, she has embarked on a life of public service and the Yale Fellowship should only enhance her leadership capability and capacity to contribute to Jamaica."

She is a Commonwealth Scholar who holds a Master of Laws Degree, with merit, from the University of London, King's College; a Bachelor of Laws Degree with honours, from the University of the West Indies, Barbados and a Certificate of Legal Education from the Norman Manley Law School.
