My name is Paulette Lewis. I am a highly competent and well-respected leader, manager and nurse adviser, with extensive experience acquired in a number of senior management positions in nursing over thirty five years. My effectiveness in leadership and motivational ability is evident in delivering quality outcomes, resulting in national and international awards. I have utilised my transferrable skills to support charitable organisations locally, nationally and internationally and is highly sought after to trouble shoot. As president of the Nurses Association of Jamaica UK I have forged links with international health ministers in Jamaica and Chad and have presented on health topics in Austria, Philippines and UK. I work closely with the High Commission in the UK and have a very close tie with Jamaica and the Jamaican community in the UK where I am well recognised as an active advocate and community leader. My strong points are in leadership, organisational development, finance management and communication. I think I have much to offer as a member of the Jamaican Diaspora Council.
