I have always had a passion for helping people and the patience to fix their technical issues. Additionally, I have a background in customer service and technology that helped me realize the need for more technical literacy in my community. This inspired me to become The Tech Therapist and conduct Tech Therapy Sessions not just in Chicago, but all over the United States. For the past 3 years, our revenue has been on an upward trajectory and will continue in that direction.

Now that I am in the process of owning Studio15, which is my brick and mortar location, I can conduct in-person business, website building workshops, youth tech & computer programs and be able to see clients face to face, not just virtually. Studio15 is a versatile location that will also serve as an event space to be rented out by business owners who want to have pop up shopping events and more.

I, The Tech Therapist, still make computer fix house/office calls for those in and around Chicago. Creating tech jobs for others trained in the field of technical troubleshooting and solutions is the next step. TVP Tech Solutions LLC’s future is becoming a Managed Services Provider (MSP) servicing individuals and businesses through the city of Chicago. I love the technology field and I am very passionate about this work. Employing others that are technically trained and also passionate about helping people is an aspiration as well. But, my journey is far from over. With the help of the Southside Pitch grant, the initial investment into the future of this company will ensure we see the light at the end of the tunnel. Commercial property ownership is key to my process and business plan and the grant will be the down payment on my dream.
