Chanay R. Robinson is CEO of The Professional Credit Diva, LLC, which was born out of a need to fix her own credit in 2016. She signed with two different companies at the same exact time!

So, she joined several credit groups on various social media platforms and started discovering different tricks of the trade. That led her into completing more research and learning the actual process of Credit Restoration and Credit Score Improvement. It was fascinating and she really enjoyed it!
She also learned that an everyday individual could start their own Credit Repair Company. And that’s exactly what she did!!!
