What Are You Doing Now?
I graduated from Temple University (Philadelphia, PA) in 2003 with a Bachelors in Business Administration. I also earned a Masters degree in Business Administration (MBA) in 2009 from Rowan University (Glassboro, NJ). I now live in Philadelphia and enjoy spending quality time with friends and family. I’m a business analyst for Lockheed Martin, a global corporation specializing in aerospace, defense, and advance technologies. I’ve been with Lockheed Martin since 2003 although I’ve taken many positions over the years with increasing responsibilities. I completed their Finance Leadership Development Program in 2006.

My most memorable experience in Colonial
My experiences in the Colonial School District are memorable because of the faculty. I had amazing teachers and leaders that always pushed me to my potential and beyond. I always felt encouraged to try new things and inspired to dream big.

To the parents/guardians considering to put their child in the Colonial School District I say…do it! Schools everywhere have changed significantly since I graduated in 1999; however, I know this district was always committed to success. My advice is to stay involved and engaged in your child’s learning to commit to success as well.
