Analissa has over 12 years of experience in environmental management at national, regional, and international levels. She spent the majority of her career at environmental consultancies (local and international) which specialize in coastal/marine effects assessment and management.

More recently she works with an organization that focuses on hazardous chemicals and waste management through the implementation of regional projects which will positively impact their sustainable management.

Her career in environmental management has been at the technical and coordination/strategic levels and she has garnered experience in conducting environmental impact assessments, strategic environmental assessments, and conservation-related assessments. As a result of these and other projects, she has had significant engagement with stakeholders, conservation bodies, non-governmental organizations, and the public. She has a Bachelor of Science degree (UWI) in Chemistry and a Master of Science (Bournemouth University) in Coastal Zone Management.

Analissa hopes to contribute to the continued development of the Centre’s conservation program and innovation management of the Centre to encourage national awareness and appreciation of Trinidad and Tobago’s environment.
