She earned BSc and MSc degrees in biology at the Midwestern State University, and MSc in Natural Resource and Environmental Management at the University of the West Indies. Jeanel has over 15 years of experience in the sciences, 7 of which include work on diverse projects across the wider Caribbean region including climate change impact analysis, environmental and social impact assessments, fisheries and invasive species assessments. One such project was the CARIBSAVE Caribbean Climate Change Risk Atlas which took a multi-sectoral approach to examine climate change risks and the adaptive capacities of key areas including community livelihoods, fisheries and biodiversity.

Mrs. Georges Insalaco's experience spans a range of work environments from the field to the laboratory, classroom, and desk. She is an educator in school settings and during community engagement exercises. Her interdisciplinary background has allowed her to develop skills and abilities applicable to environmental management issues such as climate change communication, and community-based participatory approaches to climate change adaptation and resilience. Jeanel has followed her passion for environmental stewardship by conducting a number of biological studies with the aim of informing policy and developing natural resource management strategies. She believes in the importance of conservation and sustainable management of the environment. Her love of nature extends beyond academic and professional training; she is a PADI certified advanced open water diver and enjoys snorkeling, hiking and other outdoor recreational activities.
