“Everything changed for me at the end of 2017, I suffered a horrific burnout and was hospitalized.”
I was living like most female employees with kids, working 14-16 hour days, six or sometimes seven days a week, spending very little time with my family. I constantly thought that these precious hours could be better spent working on “giving back” in the form of academic education. Sure, I loved my past IT career and the great friends I’d met, but I still felt that I was not fulfilling my true purpose.
Going into 2020, I put a 1-year goal in place – to become a Virtual CEO. I was already an experienced Teacher at an all-girls Catholic institution and loved helping kids. Prior to the company’s launch, I tutored on weekends, having left my prestigous corporate job and started a blog to chart the journey.
My goal now is to provide online tutoring to junior and senior students by way of STEM Education. By early July 2020, I launched RentMyTutor.com, an EdTech start-up. The Company’s vision is to enhance teacher-led learning in classrooms and improve students’ educational outcomes via technology.
I now work an average of 10-12 hours a day, my work week no longer includes Sunday’s and I get to spend lots of time with my husband and two awesome children!
I’d love to hear from you further 🙂

Founder & STEM Educator
With 13 years of experience working in the IT industry, I’ve have been able to pioneer a happy and positive approach resulting in students learning to thoroughly enjoy their academic classes with the use of technology.
Before and throughout my professional career, I’ve studied and worked in the United States and in my home country of Trinidad. Having dedicated over a decade to the corporate industry, I then decided to dedicate my hard work to a more fulfilling purpose …“helping students succeed using IT Tools along their academic journey!”
Being mentored by companies such as Amcham and IDB-TT with their Women in Technology Programme, was definitely a memorable experience as this was the deciding factor for me to further explore the online education industry. I’m an experienced: mentor & mentee to IT professionals, Math and IT Tutor (US & T’dad), IT Teacher, MBA Graduate, wife and mother of 2.
Becoming a mom was a game-changer. I’m the proud mama of an eleven 11 year old daughter and 6 year old son and I live with my husband in Diego Martin.
