Profiles

 

dgBasseterre, St Kitts; 8 September 2012:  Mrs. Victoria Gavin-Richardson was born in Manchester, south central Jamaica.  She attended the Carron Hall High School, a boarding institution for girls in the eastern parish of St. Mary.  Like her fellow Jamaican, the legendary Mary Seacole, she chose to pursue the nursing profession, and trained at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica. She worked as a nurse for a number of years until she made a decision to leave the profession, so that she could dedicate her life, from the mid-1960s into the 1980s, to being a wife, and mother to her three children, Grace, Howard and Michael.  She caught the teaching-bug and did a short stint at the renowned Jamaica College (J.C.) where she taught Spanish.
