Trecia Powell

President and Founder

Born in Manchester, Trecia developed a thirst for business at very young age. She started selling sweets in 8th Grade while at Manchester High School then she was hooked. She later evolved that business spirit by turning tutoring and doing laundry into a business while studying at the University of Technology, Jamaica. She later started her company in 2017 “Virtual Office Genius International Services Limited”. However, following the many struggles she experienced with her own business, she realized that other businesses out there must be experiencing the same type of difficulties too, thus she created The Jamaica Business Society.
