Thereafter she has been writing for leading Jamaican online media website. As a major contribution to the advancement of Jamaica and Jamaicans everywhere, she and other prolific writers have provided content for this site.

Anthea takes pride in creative expressions as a journalist and artist when it comes to Jamaica. Her introduction to the legal field was a paralegal course at the Jamaica Paralegal Institute, paid for by a Jamaican attorney. The course was payment for her graphic work done for his business, and the attorney (CRR) who died in 2016 also mentored her successful application to law school.
She also founded OAaSIS International Foundation to network members and supporting members of the creative force in assisting with the development of the creative mind of today’s youth, esp in Jamaica.
Theres no comparison to her experience at the Edna Manley College (former Jamaica School of Art), she says. See more.
