I was born and raised on Chicago's south side. I attended one of Chicago's top high school, Lindblom Technical High School. I attended college at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee Florida were I majored in Data Processing. Upon graduating, I began working in the IT departments for some of the world's largest organizations. After several years, I became a management consultant. During my 20-year tenure as a consultant, I managed the daily operations of a companies Information Technology department, I managed the implementation of an organizations major software, I mentored junior staff and advised and assisted organizations in developing the strategic plans of their Information Technology.Over the years, I have had a keen interest in real estate. I chose my college major to ensure that upon graduation I could secure with ease a position that would allow me to invest in real estate with the ultimate goal of becoming a developer. I bought my first multi-unit building within 3 years of graduating. Over the years I have purchased several more properties using my original purchases as leverage.Along the way, I mentored some of my tenants in the area of real estate and found it rewarding that I could help someone build financial independence. I decided to leave the corporate arena after the birth of my last child in 2001. While contemplating my next move a former tenant recommended I go into real estate because I could help others as I helped them.
