After graduating from UWI, Mr. Browne chose to turn down a scholarship to pursue graduate studies in order to return home to assist his elderly mother.

There, he was trained and worked in key administrative capacities including as a literacy coach, data specialist, staff developer, assistant principal, acting principal, and school district English and Mathematics assessment and corrections coordinator.

Back home at Princess Margaret Secondary School, Mr. Browne started an Etiquette and Modelling Club to help inner-city youth develop leadership skills by bridging the science of aesthetics prowess, to fuel personal development. He founded and directed Keeping-on-Point, a non-profit mentoring and academic program to help economically vulnerable students gain an understanding of their place in the world through character education, community service, and collaborative partnerships.
