Dr. Veronica Evelyn is a strong proponent of marketplace evangelism and applied Christianity. A consultant sociologist and former social worker and guidance counsellor, for the past 25 years she has had the unique privilege of working with a wide cross section of individuals, groups and organizations at all levels of Caribbean society both in the secular world and Christian community. Her work includes social action research, training and counselling. It extends from hands on counselling to training of trainers at a national and regional level; from analyzing the effects of microwave society, to technical consultancy regarding intergenerational poverty; from routine family life issues to interventions with substance abusers, sex workers, HIV positive individuals and other vulnerable and at-risk populations. Dr. Evelyn considers this strategic positioning to be God’s purposeful investment in her life so that she can be salt and light in her sphere of influence. Her interdisciplinary training and work experience includes Sociology, Sociolinguistics, Social Work, Addiction Studies and Emotional Intelligence. She is particularly interested in human behaviour and the dynamic interplay between the individual and society.
