I’m an East Cleveland native currently residing in Euclid, OH. I attended Florida A&M University (which is the school where my parents met) as a History major, and returned to Cleveland in 2012. I’ve been working at KeyBank since January of 2013, and started my career as a Philanthropy Intern with the KeyBank Foundation. Being one of seven children, I’m very close to my family and enjoy spending my time off with my siblings. In addition to being involved with the UWYL, I’ve also had the opportunity to model in Rock the Catwalk in 2013 and 2014!
Are you involved with any other groups or activities? If so, what are they?
I’m a member of the New Partners associate board of Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center, Co-Lead of the Key Young Professionals Education Committee, and Co-Chair of the UWYL KeyBank Chapter.
In your opinion, what makes Cleveland a good city for young professionals?
Cleveland is a great city for young professionals because there are always events going on that provide unique networking opportunities. Also, senior leaders are often very willing to meet with young professionals and give career advice.
What is your favorite thing to do in Cleveland?
Attending Mix at the Cleveland Museum of Art, which is their first Friday networking event.
