My dad was a union man and worked as a Skycap at JFK Airport and my mom cleaned the bathrooms of our neighbors so that they could save enough money to eventually open a small Mom & Pop business, working 16 hr days, every day of the year…their sacrifices paved the way for me to work on my passion which is Public Service.
