Quincia Gumbs Marie

2023 Fellow

Minister of Sustainability, Innovation and the Environment


The Honorable Quincia Gumbs Marie was elected to public office in June 2020. In her immediate capacity as the Parliamentary Secretary of Information Technology, Natural Resources, Economic Development, and Tourism, Gumbs-Marie quickly accepted the role as tsar: jumpstarting the economy, hyper-communication, and changing scenes of a world locked down by unprecedented times. Quincia is currently the Honorable Minster of Sustainability, Innovation, and Environment. Minister Gumbs-Marie’s portfolio includes responsibility for thematic areas such as Conservation, Renewable Energy Development, Climate Change, Food Security, and Information and Communications Technology. Her political career has been instrumental in making issues of Sustainable Development and Climate Change household conversations amongst the average Anguillian. The Minister is known and celebrated for her no-nonsense approach and her penchant for sifting through politics and getting on with progress. Despite this, she admits to being painfully aware of the limitations placed on women in politics, particularly in roles not typically reserved for women, such as Agriculture and Fisheries. Minister Gumbs Marie says, “My work speaks for the women who came before me but were denied and the girl who will succeed me and thrive.”
