Nea was born on Tortola and has worked in both agriculture and education in the Territory. After pursuing a B.Sc. in Sustainable Development and Agroecology at Appalachian State University in North Carolina, she returned home, established a small family farm, and began teaching at the Primary level. She has expanded her Full Belly Farm to provide more local, organic produce, and feels blessed to be part of the Green VI team as Garden Coordinator, as the work helps fulfill her dream of bringing together children, education and agriculture in the BVI.
