Maxine Avon McCoy-Moore
Maxine Avon McCoy-Moore was born in St. Andrew, Jamaica on 14th September, 1958 1st child and only daughter of 6th generation Caymanian parents Samson & Mary McCoy “Pioneers in Tourism” for Little Cayman. I have five younger brothers, one daughter and two sons, five grandsons and one granddaughter.
Educated at the Spot Bay Primary School, Cayman Brac High School & ICCI in Newlands where I completed two years of Computer Science/Operations. This enabled me to become the 1st Cayman Brac-ker to sit behind a computer in the 1980’s.
I was the instigator for the very first PROM and GRADUATION for the students of the Brac High School and have many years experiences working with my government and the private sector in Finance, Administration, Bookkeeping/Accounting, Customer Representation, Postal, Teaching, HR Management, Banking, Insurance Broker/Agent, Office Manager etc. I also volunteered my time to help with the setting up of the CICSA Co-Op Credit Union office on the Brac and the Cayman Islands Boys Scouts along with “Fund Raising Events” for the Lions Club.
Every second that I spent at each of these positions I always did my best to spot problems and create the solutions to fix them. All of these jobs have helped me not only meet most of my neighbors at such a personal level, but also realize how important it is to get involved to make our present and our future better. To collaborate and partner with others to achieve better results and to be humble and supportive to meet our most important task and to leave no one behind. Always remember to agree to disagree.
