Angela comes to Fresh Start Science with over 20 years of business experience that includes being an account representative for Optelecom, a clinic manager for the American Laser Center, and an assembly technician for Canon of Virginia. Angela recently obtained her bachelor’s degree in business management from Strayer University, graduating Magna Cum Laude. She worked Fresh Start Science on a volunteer basis for over a year. Part of her life experience is that she was at one time a disadvantaged single mother herself. Through hard work and a supportive environment, she was able to find a path that led her out of the “stuck” position that so many single mothers are in.
