Brief History After receiving her Bachelor of Laws Degree with Honours from the University of Liverpool (United Kingdom) in 2000, Miss Gayle returned to Jamaica and briefly worked for the National carrier, formerly Air Jamaica now known as Caribbean Airlines. In 2002 she enrolled at the Norman Manley Law School and in 2004 obtained from the Council of Legal Education a Legal Education Certificate (Jamaica) and Certificate of Enrolment (Jamaica) from the Supreme Court of Judicature (Jamaica). In December 2004 Miss Gayle pursued a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration from the School of Technology and Management (London) and a Master in Business Administration (International Business) (London). Whilst in London, Miss Gayle worked for Barbara Ledgister and Company (Attorney-at-Law/UK Solicitor) in the areas of Immigration Law, Conveyancing and Probate and Administration (Estate Law). She was also involved in Community related activities with the Jamaican High Commission (London). Upon returning to Jamaica in December 2006, Miss Gayle commenced working in her family's Law Firm, Pamela Shoucair Gayle and Company where she was involved in the General practice of Law, particularly in the areas of Conveyancing, Estate and Litigation (Criminal and Civil). Between 2007 and 2010, Miss Gayle worked for the Government of Jamaica at the Administrator General's Department where she was charged with administering the Estates of persons who died Intestate, leaving minor beneficiaries. In 2011, Miss Gayle worked in the private Sector as the General Manager, Corporate Services and Head of the Real Estate and Auctioneering Unit at La Maison Property Services Limited. In May 2012, Miss Gayle returned to the Government Sector and commenced working at the Coffee Industry Board as the Legal Officer/Board Secretary. She is the Manager of the Licensing/Legal Department and is engaged in the practice of Intellectual Property Law, Contract Law and the provision of general legal advice to the organization.
 
Outlook for the Jamaican coffee industry Miss Gayle hopes that the Industry will rebound and production levels in both the High Mountain and Blue Mountain Region will return to increased levels, thereby diminishing the need for the importation of coffee, legal or otherwise. Concomitant with this is greater spending power for all Industry stakeholders, thereby contributing ultimately to Jamaica's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
