What do you like about your job?

I love being able to provide career guidance and supportive services to youth.

Where did you work before YJC?

Before coming to YJC, I worked with Goodwill Workforce Connection Center as an Employment Services Representative.

What was your first job?

My first job was with Walgreens as a Customer Service Associate.

What did you learn from your first job?

At Walgreens I learned how to support a team and provide quality service to customers.

Has your career path gone how you expected?

My career path has not gone the way I expected because I originally worked in real estate. After taking a temp position at a workforce center, I fell in love with workforce services.

Fun fact:

I love spending time with my family, going out to eat, and, of course, shopping!
