About Kate Chappell

"And all I offer here is the distilled poetry of my existence..." Claude McKay, Poet Laureate of Jamaica, 1890-1848 I have been a reporter since 1998, covering mainly business and politics. I have also capitalized on the many skills journalism requires to become an all-around communications specialist. In addition to being a professional curious person and communicator, I have a bad case of the travel bug and can't seem to stay put. Finally, I have put my skills to work as a volunteer in the community wherever I have lived. Now, follow me as I combine these compartments of my life in Kingston, Jamaica, where I will be a voluteer with CUSO-VSO. I am working in Kingston with YOU Jamaica, a non-profiit organization that does mentoring and career counselling with the country's youth. CUSO-VSO is an international agency that places professionals in communities where they work to promote sustainable development.
