Arienne began her studies in London Ontario, majoring in International Development & French. Her university career allowed her study abroad opportunities in France, Panama and the United States. In between her Bachelors & MSc., she took advantage of a teaching opportunity to Michoacán, Mexico.

She moved back to Dominica in 2006/7 and accepted a position at the Discover Dominica Authority as a Marketing Executive responsible for France, French West Indies and The Caribbean. This was an ideal segue into her current role as Manager of Castle Comfort Lodge/Dive Dominica, a family owned and operated business. She served on the DHTA Board in 2012/13 and her role as Secretary in 2014 immediately led to Director responsible for Tourism Services and now First Vice President and President Elect responsible for Marketing & Air Access.
