A citizen of Dominica by birth, Mrs Le Blanc-Sahlu initially trained as a Registered Nurse in Dominica, and for a time was employed at the Princess Margaret Hospital before emigrating to the United States of America. She continued personal development there, graduating with Bachelor and Master degree in Nursing from US Universities.
