Favorite Thing about Newark: The people…I love meeting, talking to and getting to know new people. There is always something to learn. The residents of Newark that I have met have been so welcoming and open it has made working in Newark daily an absolute pleasure!
If you could have any super power: what would it be and why?: I would love to be able to Self-Replicate…the ability to make several copies of myself to get things done quickly so I have more time for the things that really matter like being of service or spending quality time with my sons
