HUSTL WORKS, co-founder, entrepreneur community (e-courses)
January 2019 - Present
Having business and IT as my specialties, it only seemed right to package my knowledge together in an easy to digest format. Helping others, who may also be in the 9-5 and passion project hustle, quickly and efficiently get their business built in less than a month and under $1000! A passion project curated together with my boyfriend, Sanjay Pinnock (he’s a creative director, check out Sanjay’s profile).
Curlshoppe, founder & ceo, curly hair product brand
January 2015 - Present
CurlShoppe is a curly hair brand with naturally-based products that cater to all curls, kinks and coils. Owned and operated by 2 curly hair women of colour (myself and my best friend Rowan McAnoy) based in Toronto; we even did a podcast episode with the eProject. This business is my baby, and really catapulted me into the world of entrepreneurship and have opened up many doors. Still not paying ourselves (always reinvesting), we work hard to continue to grow this ecommerce business into a Canadian household name for curly hair. If CurlShoppe fits with your brand, let me know if you would like to collab as we are always looking for opportunities to build in the curly community!
rbc, it project manager, business initiatives and strategy
December 2018 - Present
Since graduating in June 2014, I jumped right into my career within Business Technology and joined RBC. I was so happy to have gotten a job within my field. I strengthened both my interpersonal skills and technology knowledge while diving deeper into project management. Still currently my 9-5 as I continue to work on building my own empire and on the way to becoming a millionaire (just wait on it). I save thousands of dollars annually through my (consulting) strategies and know my way around tackling issues and providing solid solutions.
