Kellylee's story

I am a Jamaican- born, Bronx, New York-raised, travel nurse, living in California who is trying to follow her dreams. I come from a lineage of farmworkers, cooks, nurses, and security guards. All my life I have seen my parents and grand-parents work 2 - 3 jobs to make ends meet and take care of our family. I always dreamed of one day being able to take care of my family so they wouldn't have to work so hard and enjoy even a morsel of life. What motivates me to run and operate my business is my past and where I was raised. Growing up in an urban area as I realize now as an adult not much opportunity was given to people like myself especially young ladies. With the knowledge, I have now I want that to change. I want to create a successful business not only to help my family but to encourage and uplift the young people where I am from and create an opportunity for them as well to purpose their dreams and endeavors.
