National Haitian American Elected Official Network (NHAEON)
Council member, Irvington, New Jersey


Dear Colleagues & Friends,
I have the distinguished honor to serve as the 2022-2024 Chairwoman for the National Haitian American Elected Officials Network(NAHEON).
I would like to express how vitally important I take this privilege to lead this organization of esteemed leaders from across the country. As an elected official of Irvington Township, New Jersey, since 2012, I know how crucial it is to build on the foundation of past leadership. Leadership that has enhanced the Haitian community it serves across the country, and it is my primary goal to ensure we contribute to the resilient work NHAEON originated.
As I look at my upcoming term, I see both opportunities and challenges that will shape the framework of NHAEON operating practices. I am confident that we can collaboratively work with all of our members to be engaged within their respective communities and foster relationships with external entities to enhance the livelihood of our communities.

As the Chairwoman, I intend to continue amplifying the voice of the Haitian-American Community through civic engagement, equity, equality, and social justice. My goal is for each of our respective committees to produce practical initiatives to improve the Haitian Diaspora and disenfranchised communities domestically and internationally. Let’s move toward reinforcing our network platform and ‘Move Forward, Together’ in Unity and Strength.
