‎Asbury Park Press:

I believe the seeds of business ownership were planted in me as I spent my summers working in my mother’s store, a wig shop in Asbury Park, and learned the business and mindset of being self-employed.

At age 23, I was employed as a cosmetologist. One day, my life changed drastically. I was in a car accident that rendered me unable to work for a period of time. As a single mom, I was unable to pay my bills and faced eviction from my apartment.

In my struggle, I took a part-time position working for a janitorial cleaning company that changed my life. I worked for this company for six months. Full story.
