A native of Aruba, Shirley Barrow was educated in Holland. She then traveled the world including Europe and the USA and worked in the Bahamas and South Africa before returning to her native Caribbean island.
Her diverse background also reflects itself in her choice of careers; Shirley successfully managed international gaming casinos. A passionate golf player, she qualified for a World Championship and turned Golf Professional shortly thereafter. As the Golf Pro of Tierra del Sol in Aruba she was recognized by the World Golf Teachers Federation as one of the top 60 teaching professionals in the world.
On her travels Shirley also had the opportunity to sample and study world cuisine and wine pairing which led to her third and current profession, managing fine dining restaurants for over a decade, and putting her multi-talented, multi-lingual leadership style to good use at Aqua Grill, as an excellent role model and inspiration to her colleagues and friends.
