I obtained my first job at the age of fifteen at Six Flags, Great Adventure in Freehold, New Jersey. Then, at sixteen, I began working at Quaker Bridge Mall in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. During my Quakerbridge Mall days is where I indeed developed my work ethic. I used to catch the Riverline to the Trenton Transit Center to catch the 609 NJ Transit bus to the mall to work, which was, at that time, either SEARS, American Eagle Outfitters, and Deb, or Lord and Taylor in the Women's shoe department. I know what it's like to work hard and still feel as if you're not receiving the fruits of your labor.
Later on, in my professional journey, I joined the United States Army with a military occupational specialty (MOS) as a Human Resources Specialist. I held the titles of Public Affairs Officer, Human Resources Officer, and Executive Administrative Supervisor. After finishing my service with the United States Army, I immediately knew that serving my community would be my next calling. Trenton needs politicians and public servants that the people of Trenton can believe in. We are at a very crucial time in this city, and I'm that leader. Trenton can count on me.
