I have lived on St. John for over 30 years. I started a business - a Ben and Jerry's ice cream store which later developed into a fabulous vegetarian restaurant called Luscious licks which I sold in 1999. Since then I have been in the high end villa management business until I recently retired. I have also been a community activist through the last 20 years ; and sat on boards from our local ACC (animal care center) , Crimestoppers usvi , CBCC (coral bay community council) and JAVI...junior
