Ce-Ce was raised by a single mother in public housing. She was the first person in her family to finish high school and graduate from college. After receiving her Bachelors Degree from Cedar Crest College, Ce-Ce started her life of public service. She worked at the Boys and Girls Club in Allentown and taught at the Children’s Home of Easton. Ce-Ce continued her service in the community as a mental health professional and is currently working as a Street Outreach Worker with youth experiencing homelessness.
Ce-Ce’s political and activists work has been focused on uplifting people and communities. During her eight years on the School Board, Ce-Ce took on the tough issues even when it wasn’t popular. She wasn’t afraid to be the only voice of dissent in the room. Ce-Ce’s bold leadership translated into the community where she fought for an Allentown First Jobs Initiative for the jobs in and surrounding the arena. Long before she was elected to municipal government, Ce-Ce stood up to politicians and developers to demand that they focus on workforce housing and bringing true community benefits to our neighborhoods.
Ce-Ce is currently on City Council. She has passed ordinances and resolutions on issues from homelessness, community benefits, workforce housing and police reform. She’s not finished yet. Ce-Ce continues to take the lead on issues that most elected officials avoid because of the political risk.
Ce-Ce is a first-time homeowner in Center City. She has two God-Daughters and enjoys spending time with her cats and dog.
