I'm Charmine...

Welcome to my website!!!

I’m delighted that you’ve joined me today and I hope that your experience will be a positive one; one that you may be inspired to share with your family and friends.

If it’s the first time you’re joining me, please permit me to share a little about myself and what prompted me to create this platform.

Born and raised on the beautiful island of Trinidad & Tobago (best known for its Carnival, calypso, soca and the steel-pan), I am the eighth of nine children with a network of extended family.

I began my professional career in Banking, and have spent most of my time talking about finance and money management. I’m a firm believer of continuous learning and have earned an Executive Masters in Business Administration from the University of the West Indies.


I began writing poems and short stories during my early teenage years, but this passion decreased as I turned my interest to the world of finance. I also journal my thoughts and outlook on life, and this hobby has continued to today.

A few years ago I rediscovered my passion for writing during a period of reflection and change – i.e. subsequent to when my marriage ended. In that time of transition I turned to my journaling as a form of relaxation.  Fortuitously, it also became therapeutic. What seemed like a dark period of melancholic brooding became a stepping-stone to the uplifting heights of positive re-invention.

Buoyed by this encouraging awakening, I was inspired to pen notes to my daughter about positive life lessons, notes which have turned out to be my first publication “LOST IN THE SUNSET – Reflections on a Journey to Self Discovery”.

My drive is to assist women move beyond the adversities and daily challenges in their lives. Using my experiences and professional expertise, I continue to work towards positively influencing the lives of individuals through my writing, speaking and management coaching.

I'm currently writing my second publication, using the expertise and extensive experience I have accumulated over my career in Finance to assist individuals with strategies, tools and methods to manage their personal finances.

My hope is that in your unique way, you can be a pillar in your community through the benefit of my lessons, my teachings and through your guided experiences, for the greater good of building a healthy society around you.

I can't wait for you to be a part of this journey
