I was born in Manhattan, New York and raised on the beautiful island of Jamaica where my parents grow the world-renowned Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee. After graduating from the Convent of Mercy Academy High School, I returned to the United States to attend the University of Maryland.
In my lifetime I've worn a variety of hats, from a young engineer to a successful romance author and of course the two I am most proud of...wife and mother. Through it all, I've always strived to look my best and express myself through fashion. In fact, I'd always dreamed of one day owning my own boutique.
With great pride, some stumbles along the way, hard work and unwavering support from family and close friends, that dream was realized in November 2017.
I'd like to thank every person that has and will continue to patronize McKenley Rae Boutique. Thank you for helping me live my dream, and I hope you enjoy our little slice of heaven in beautiful Historic Downtown Clermont.
