Sadie-Ann Sisnett, BScH, MSc. Dip - Born July 9, 1983 in Barbados, West Indies. I became interested in the the environment and especially the ocean, at a very young age and after graduating secondary school, attended the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada for 4 years (2001 - 2005). I majored in Marine and Freshwater Biology ad graduated with Honours in 2005. I returned to Barbados hoping to find a job in my area of study and instead, began working in tourism from 2007 at Atlantis Submarines (Barbados) Inc. During that time I decided to pursue my first Masters degree part-time in Natural Resource and Environmental Management at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus in Barbados and graduated with a Masters Diploma in 2011. In March 2013, I began a new job at the Coastal Zone Management Unit as Research Officer in the Coastal Planning section where my main duties are the assessment of development applications and public education and awareness. In September of 2013, I began to pursue my 2nd Masters degree, this time in Project Management and Evaluation, where I hope to gain the knowledge to be able to assist the Unit in the efficient execution of its projects. I believe that an effective marriage of sustainable development (especially in the coastal environment) and project efficiency, will be able to set Barbados apart from the rest of the region and to become an example to other Small Island Developing States. I am due to graduate in October 2015.
