About Kerry-Ann

Kerry-Ann Reid-Brown

Hi! I am Kerry-Ann career and entrepreneur strategist, the founder of Carry On Friends!

As a career and entrepreneur strategist I help people be their best, put their best ideas to use and provide the resources to assist them.

What’s my story?

My story, like your story isn’t singular or linear. I can’t pinpoint a story because there are many stories, developing over the years, that have intertwined and led me to why I started Carry On Friends. But I know this for sure – the one constant since I was a little girl – I am passionate about helping people succeed.

Kerry-Ann at Triple the Focus Ladies Who BrunchI was born in Jamaica and moved to Brooklyn, NYC as a teenager.  I love to read. While I still have a sizable collection of physical books, I have just as much digital books on my nook. There’s nothing like walking around with a digital library. I don’t have a favorite book because there are so many that I love. I enjoy writing especially in my journal.

I’m passionate about technology particularly women in technology. I noticed the disparity when I began my career in technology. I feel there’s still more to be done to really get students in the minority and Caribbean communities,  to see where there are viable careers and a future in technology. I believe it is important for students to learn about the future of technology and the importance of their participation in shaping that future. I also believe that it is important that parents understand that technology jobs are just as viable and profitable and maybe more so than the traditional jobs.
