A native of Trinidad and Tobago, Marlene holds a Bachelor of Computer Science and a Master of Business Administration from Jackson State University.

She retired into entrepreneurship with a focus on Financial Literacy mainly because of her upbringing.
Marlene grew up in a household that was financially challenged. She has a heart for seeing individuals go beyond debt freedom to total financial freedom. She learned the fundamentals of money management from her single mother who managed a household of 8 kids yet left a financial legacy of real estate and money.
