Upon high school graduation from Southern Senior High school I attended Towson University to pursue a degree in family and human services with a child life track. With this major I planned to become a child life specialist and work in the hospital setting in the pediatrics department. Throughout my time at Towson University I volunteered at Anne Arundel Medical Center in the pediatric inpatient and outpatient unit and Johns Hopkins Children Center in the infant and toddler unit where I still volunteer today. I also held a part time job as an administrative assistant at the Conte Lubrano Building where I worked for around five years when I was home for the holidays. Once I graduated Towson University in May 2016, I began a part time job with Finamore Services as an office manager as well as doing the pay roll for the company. Now I am working as an administrative assistant at TL Transportation Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday while still volunteering for Johns Hopkins on Mondays and working for Finamore Services on Fridays. I plan to go back to college for a business degree in the following Fall.

As a former military spouse, I was introduced to work as a contractor for a few government contracts. I had the opportunity to work closely with the Department of Defense’s, Defense Logistics Agency. While there I was processing the billing for procured printing material and equipment maintenance program. Prior to that, I was a Payroll Administrator processing the time and attendance and payroll system of a large government security contract. I maintained the payroll for more than 350 employees and worked closely in the HR Department assisting with the new-hire process. I came to work with TransLogistix LLC in July 2015 when they gained their first Amazon Logistics site in Springfield, VA. I evolved gradually with the day to day administrative duties, to later manage the site for the first year and a half since it opened. Until this past October, I made the change and came to work at the corporate office as a Payroll Specialist where I process the payroll for all Amazon Logistics sites which TransLogistix LLC currently operates.
