Born on the beautiful island of Barbados, Chalina immigrated to the United States at the age of 13. She attended Paul Robeson High School in Brooklyn, NY, where a select group of people and programs, such as Stefanie Siegel and Bailey’s Café, opened her eyes to life-changing relationships and opportunities.

Chalina is a Tax Manager at Deloitte Tax LLP where she focuses on leveraging technology to improve the calculation of a variety of tax adjustments. This is in addition to her seven years of experience in the investment management tax compliance space and two years in finance.  Chalina earned her BA in Economics from Columbia University and went on to earn her MBA in both Public Accounting and Taxation from Pace University.

Chalina had the pleasure of experiencing Bailey’s Café while she attended Paul Robeson High School and is excited to once again be a part of this life-changing organization.  Chalina became treasurer in 2019.
