“I would love to make a difference in the workforce and education system by utilizing my skills, strengths, and experiences,” she says. “I believe career development and education go together as a journey. I encountered this firsthand as a member of SkillsUSA when I was in high school. I would like to help others experience similar journeys with JFF.”

“I was born and raised on Long Island, New York, and currently live in South Carolina with my wife,” she says. “We have two rescue dogs—a Brazilian Mastiff named Georgia and an adorable mutt named Savannah. I am family-oriented; it comes with the territory of being an aunt to eight kiddos. I love adventures, whether it’s taking a road trip to someplace new or taking a walk on a nature trail on a chilly fall day. My guilty pleasure is binge-watching Netflix while snacking on dairy-free chocolate.”
