Essence Carter

Essence Carter joined SCF in June 2018. Before joining the Foundation, Essence worked as the executive assistant for a historical and cultural nonprofit in St. Croix. Essence is from St. Louis, MO and visited St. Croix in 2015 to intern with the St. Croix Landmarks Society. Through this internship, Essence curated her first exhibit and learned about the unique culture of St. Croix. After Hurricanes Irma and Maria, Essence decided to take a broader approach for supporting the arts and culture sector of the community. “St. Croix has embraced me unlike any other place I have lived. The resiliency of the residents after the hurricanes and the devotion of individuals to raise awareness with minimum resources is truly what keeps me here.”
