Dr. Cuffy returns to give back to Dominica and the region

Dr. Cuffy

Dr Violet Vyline Cuffy, who has read for her doctorate at the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom, graduated earlier this year and is now on the island to show gratitude to those who contributed to her success.

Accordingly, a thanksgiving mass and cocktail celebration was held over the weekend at the Redemptorist’s St. Clement’s House in Belfast.  Present at the event were a cross-section of interview participants, research assistants, family, friends and well-wishers.

Dr Cuffy, who is currently engaged in post study international professional work in the United Kingdom, is a visiting lecturer at the University of West Minster.  Concurrently, she has also launched her own consultancy company, The RosEd Training Centre and hopes to begin working on projects in Dominica and the region.

She is now focusing on publications from her thesis.  Dr Cuffy hopes that her work will impact the quality and structure of tourism education and training, not only in Dominica, but in other heavily tourism-dependent small island states.

In her words, her accomplishment was as a result of being focused, hard work, discipline and the tremendous support obtained from a wide cross of persons at home and abroad.  In that regard, Dr Cuffy wishes to say thank you to all whom in one way or another contributed to her success.
