My Story


College Graduation

Graduated from Virginia State University with a BS Degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I stared my journey to show the world that technology really is that easy!

Training & Beyond, LLC

Launched in the Spring of 2003, Training & Beyond focused on providing software and soft skills training domestically and aboard. One of the most popular offers for this firm was to create internal SharePoints and Learning Management Systems (LMS) for organizations.


123JobZone, LLC

As demand grew to source projects for Austin & Associates, 123JobZone was birthed. This US-based job board platform became a great resource for both job seekers and employers.


My Brand. My App. LLC

In 2014, the tech scene started to shift as so did we! After tremendous success with developing mobile app games, it became a dream to start developing apps for brands and companies to improve their engagement with their communities.


The Mobile Sophisticate

In 2019, it became apparent that businesses need not only to focus on mobile apps but software technology. So The Mobile Sophisticate was created to focus on mobile technology and software solutions.


Since the year of 2020 keep people apart, Laticia decided what better time to bring people together then a dating website. Three niche based websites were launched; It’s A Real Date, CEO Dates and Black Plus Love.
