Following graduation he immediately found employment at a local bank as a Financial Representative, and has since moved on to become an Investment Advisor.

She then went on to earn another Bachelor’s in Medical Sciences from The Medical School of the Americas. Inspired by a friend who succumbed to Sickle Cell Anemia, she went on to work as clinical researcher, in search of a cure for the insidious disease that largely afflicts African-Americans.
