Hailing from the Isle of Spice Grenada, Roxanne Halley joined the GGO in June 2015 as the Finance & Logistics Assistant for the team. She is no stranger to IUCN as she has been with the organization for almost 4 years as the Finance & Administrative Assistant for the IUCN DC Office, working closely with the Director, Senior Finance Officer, and also the HR & Membership Focal point.
She is a 2010 Graduate of the historical Howard University in Washington DC, receiving a BBA in the field of Accounting. In the summer of 2007 she interned with PricewaterhouseCoopers in her homeland, gaining financial experience from a Fortune 500 Company. She returned to the US to continue her studies and also to work as the Business Office Assistant for the University’s bookstore (reporting to the Accountant & Operations Manager) for the remainder of her academic life. In addition to juggling a part-time job and a full-time study grind, Roxanne also volunteered at The Messenger – WPFW 89.3fm here in Washington DC, where she hosted a 15-minute program called “The Pulse” reporting on Caribbean news and also interviewing Reggae & Dancehall artistes live on-air and in concert. In her quiet time she enjoys music, reading, writing, and spending quality time with her boys (2 sons and partner) at home.
