Dr. Paulette Trowers-Lawrence is a Jamaican native with strong family beliefs and Christian values. She grew up in a large family of 14 siblings and attributed her mother, Josephine Trowers, now deceased, for her ambition, work ethics and the love of learning. Trowers’ beliefs in her “Divine Purpose” are wrapped in what her Creator directed her to call “C8”; Comprehension, Creativity, Courage, Compass, Connection, Comfort, and Character.
Paulette Trowers-Lawrence has dubbed herself, “Almost”. In her quest for personal growth and realization of her divine purpose, she is constantly snatching the proverbial victory from the jaws of defeat. The Nickname “almost” is therefore befitting of the many stumbling blocks that often threaten to derail her from achieving her dreams. She almost did not graduate from High School, almost did not attend college or law school, almost became a runway model and a grandmother, and almost died.
She is currently a Full-Time Lecturer at the University of Technology, Jamaica (Utech, Ja,), teaching Entrepreneurship, Family Business and Digital Entrepreneurship. She is also the Coordinator for the revitalized Business Clinic at Utech, Ja., and Liaison for the Online Distant Learning team.
Additionally, Lawrence is also the Founding President & CEO of Connect to Higher Education, Electronic Tools, Application and Help (CHEETAH™), the company she started while in law school. CHEETAH™ is a Certified Minority and Small Business Enterprise and is a registered company within Jamaica. Her own brand of tablets/PC, CHEETAH Tab, books and educational toys are utilized in multiple schools within Jamaica.
Overall, she is a Lawyer, Entrepreneur, Business Coach, Author, and Toy Producer. However, her proudest accomplishment will forever being the mother for her two sons, Derick and Jarvis.
