Miscellaneous Information

Miscellaneous Information:

Louise spent thirteen years studying and working in the UK before returning to the Islands in 2011 as the Heliport Supervisor at Cape Dolphin during the oil exploration phase of the North basin. She has a background in education and management and has enjoyed a varied career. Louise has worked in the private sector in the UK and in the Islands and most recently in the public sector as a member of the Policy Unit of the Falkland Islands Government, providing high level-support to the Corporate Management Team. It was in this role that she developed her knowledge and understanding of economic development in the Islands and the Economic and Rural Development Strategies.

Recently Louise stood as a candidate for Stanley in the General Elections, and although unsuccessful, the hustings process provided an excellent opportunity to engage with the private sector. She intends to build upon this experience and the positive relationships forged in her role as a Development Officer for FIDC.

Louise is a mother of two children, who utilise most of her free time with their own hectic social schedules. The family try and spend as much time as possible at Elephant Beach in the North Camp, which they consider to be their true home.
