Inspiration Behind 7th Laurel Immigration Consulting
As a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant and founder of 7th Laurel Immigration Consulting Inc. and Ocrej Consulting Study Abroad Consulting, I empower individuals with the skills and information needed to immigrate, apply, settle, and thrive in Canada. With a specialization in immigration, travel, tourism, settlement, and consulting, I strive to help people succeed by fostering a positive attitude and ownership of their goals.
My personal journey as an international student with toddlers in an intensive MBA program nine years ago inspired me to help others navigate the challenges of starting a new life in Canada. By sharing my experiences, knowledge, and lessons learned, I provide general information and support to prospective and potential applicants interested in immigrating temporarily or permanently to Canada.
With a dynamic, cross-functional background, I possess excellent problem-solving, project management, communication, sales, client services, and relationship management skills. I am proud of my exemplary record of working with teams to initiate, execute, and manage projects, create efficiency, and deliver timely results.
Supporting Black-owned Businesses
In addition to my professional pursuits, I am also committed to community service. As a Visioneer/President of the Black Business and Professional Network, an Advisory Board member of Women in Business New Brunswick, and Vice President of the Nigerian Canadian Association of Canada, I am dedicated to giving back and helping others succeed.
