TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT:
Where are you originally from (born and raised)?
I was born and raised in Washington, D.C.
Tell us a little bit about your background… what did you do before joining GPC?
After studying psychology and anthropology in college in St. Louis, I moved back to D.C. and worked for a non-profit organization that does a variety of different things, including domestic violence prevention work. I moved to New York City in 2011 to get my master’s degree in public health, and joined GPC soon after graduating in 2013.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My role at GPC has shifted many times since joining six years ago — and no two days are ever really the same in my current position — but my consistent favorite part of my job has been having the knowledge that we are truly making a difference in the lives of the women we serve. Although my work is done behind the scenes, I am fulfilled knowing that our programs are having a major impact on the well-being of so many deserving women around NYC.
If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?
Japan! I am fascinated by Japanese culture and love their food.
What’s your secret talent that no one knows about?
I can clap with one hand.
Define yourself in three words.
Caring, loyal, family-oriented.
