My road in life took a while to figure out.
Immigrated to the U.S. from Barbados when I was a child.
Transitioning into the U.S. school system was hard for me—I was always underestimated, but I had a teacher who supported me and got me back on track.
Growing up, my family was very poor and I couldn’t afford to go to college.
My teacher and people in my community rallied together to raise money to send me to college—this generosity sparked my passion in education and my desire to give back.
Received my bachelor’s degree from Morehouse College, then attended Harvard University, where I received a dual master’s degree in business administration and education.
While at Harvard, I co-founded a tutoring company which later became the Rocket Group, a company that uses technology to improve education and advance the field of online learning.
Worked at McGraw-Hill Education helping to develop adaptive learning programs for students.
I now work for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt as an executive vice president and general manager in charge of the company’s supplemental curriculum portfolio and intervention solutions.
