Dubroy graduated from Shaw University in 2002 and 5 years later went on to receive a doctorate in chemistry from North Carolina State University. Over the past 10 years, Dubroy has earned significant achievements. She has held various positions, a professor, university administrator, business visionary and co-owner, and non-profit co-founder.

Her deep connection to the Jamaican culture and her parents influenced her decision to create a line of natural hair care products targeted to surpass the needs of women in the Ethnic market. In 2014, Dubroy and her business partner Dr. Tiffani Bailey Lash, launched a beauty salon, Element Beauty Bar, in downtown Raleigh.

Tashni Dubroy knows that her recent appointment as President of Shaw University means a lot to aspiring youths from Jamaica and across the Caribbean. In a recent interview with a local TV station she said,
