Petit Anse Beach in Guadeloupe

The coconut that fell on the concrete...

Wes is a self-proclaimed "city-raised island girl". Born and bred in the Bronx, New York she developed a love for all things sunny & sandy at the tender young age of 7 when she went on her first cruise to Bermuda. At age 10, she received the blessing of being able to travel to the caribbean yet again, this time on a 10 day cruise to 5 islands. A wanderlust had begun to brew, "...as the ship left the port of St. Thomas, I remember everyone being sad because we were heading back to New York. I knew I'd be back though... I told myself I would definitely be back". 

Wes has since been back to the caribbean countless times, and plans to visit every island in the Caribbean. She’s a middle school teacher by day and a group travel planner by night (specializing in group travel for women who are tired of waiting on others!). Wes currently resides in Queens, New York with her son and husband (who just so happens to be from St. Lucia)!
