A native of New Jersey I transferred to West Virginia a little over 15 years ago to work at the new Ecolab facility in Martinsburg, with my two children Amber, now a senior at Shepherd University and Ajia, a senior at Martinsburg High School. Having worked at the Ecolab New Jersey plant for 18 years I saw this not only as an opportunity to grow on a personal level but to give my children the opportunity to experience a slower pace of life not weighed down by the hustle and bustle of city life. I am currently the Senior Purchasing Manager with over 30 years of service.
Although a single mother’s life has definitely presented its challenges and my children on a number of occasions have definitely tried my patience I cannot imagine my life without them. The commitment and dedication I have for my own children was one of the reasons I became a CASA (court appointed special advocate for abused and negligent children) volunteer in 2007. I felt the need to ensure the safety and well-being of other children. In 2014 I joined the Board.
Being both humbled and graceful for what I have achieved I look forward to giving something back to the community. My give backs include being a member of the Ecolab Education Grant Committee (which distributes money to area schools), the Community Relations Committee (which distributes money to area nonprofit organizations), President of EcoEssence which is an employee network for African Americans, formerly Special Advisor and Secretary on the Board of the Berkeley County/Martinsburg Chapter #5421 AARP, volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club of the Eastern Panhandle, Board member for RAPP (Relatives as Parents Program) of the Eastern Panhandle and as a member of the Baker Heights Baptist Church I volunteer monthly to visit the Care Haven Nursing Home in Martinsburg and donate my time and supplies to clean the Church at once a month.
A 2004 and 2006 graduate of Mountain State University, I have a Bachelors degree in Organizational Leadership and a Masters in Strategic Leadership.
“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.” –Anon.
I joined the team at the United Way of the Eastern Panhandle in October, 2016 as the Program Associate. In this position, I handle donor pledges, assist with special events, create and distribute campaign materials, and work closely with the team to help develop an effective campaign plan. Prior to this position, I worked as an administrative and communications professional in the energy industry. I graduated from Mountain State University with a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership. A native of Washington, D.C., I currently reside with my husband in Gerrardstown, WV.
