Sebastian is gaining his postgraduate degree in Crime and Risk Analysis by distance learning. He was brought up in Jamaica and France and spent nine years in The Life Guards and served in Germany, Northern Ireland, Canada and the first Gulf War.

Now with the United Nations as a civilian, he has worked for over two years in Kosovo as a security officer and is currently in Northern Iraq.

Elizabeth is gaining her MBA in Educational Management by distance learning.

She began her teaching career at the tender age of 15 and went through the ranks as a pupil teacher through in-service training with examinations. In 1979 she successfully completed a two-year teacher training in the West Indies and subsequently gained a Certificate and then a Diploma in Educational Administration. She is currently the Acting Principal of a large combined school in St Lucia.
