Why do you choose to live/work in Hudson County?
I am drawn to Hudson County because I live for Art, Music and Dance. Deeply rooted in the arts, I call Jersey City my home. My Mayan ancestors are known for their art, pottery and their weaving. Naturally, as I evolved as an artist and writer myself, I gravitated towards Jersey City, Hudson County. Here I felt a sense of belonging.
I work in Jersey City because I am committed to helping combat homelessness in our area. I work for a company called, CARA SQUARED. We, as a team, develop affordable housing. My husband Eugene P. O’Connell, is at the helm of this company and this endeavor. Passionate about the arts and real estate development, we created a gallery space in one of our buildings. This building is located in Greenville, Jersey City. I am the Marketing and Media Relations director for this company.
