What do you like about your job?

What I like most about my job is being able to impact the lives of our youth with jobs and supportive services.

Where did you work before YJC?

Before YJC, I was a Resource Coordinator at Paul Robeson High School, where I coordinated before- and after-school programs for the students. These programs provided youth with opportunities to make positive choices and achieve academic success. 

What was your first job?

My first job was as a Sales Associate at Macy's.

What did you learn from your first job?

I learned how to multi-task, manage my time, meet goals, and, most importantly, be patient!

Has your career path gone how you expected?

I've always had a passion for education and helping others. I have been fortunate in my career path that I have been able to do both. As of now, I am doing what I love to do!
