"I pursued my bachelor’s degree at Loyola University In Baltimore Maryland. I thought I would parlay this into an internship and pursue a career in Washington, DC that could help me towards a career that makes a difference. About halfway through my degree program I realized I had a passion for local government, for making a difference in the community where you live, for people that you know and interact with on a day to day basis. ...That was really the initial genesis of my interest in local government. It was how can I make a difference where it matters the most to me."
