About Michelle N. Samuel

I joined Island Innovation in September 2022 as a Sales Executive. I enjoy working there because the culture is so diverse and I get to connect with people who are passionate about making a difference.

I have over 15 years of experience in Sales and Customer Service in the banking, BPO and telecommunications industries. I’m the founder & president of SLUDTERA, a private social enterprise based in and operating in St. Lucia. We run a platform of programs and initiatives for youth, the unemployed and entrepreneurs, with a focus on 6 of the 17 SDG goals.

I’m from and live in the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Lucia, located in the Western Hemisphere. I am a travel enthusiast, thrill seeker and movie lover. I also enjoy spending time with my children, watching movies, watching sunsets, going to the beach, and thrill seeking activities, like venturing out into stormy weather. I was once invited to Buckingham Palace by the Queen to attend a ceremony there.

Surprising fact: I’m featured in my island’s 2018 telephone directory!
