Upon graduating, Solange chose to further her education and attended The University of Arizona in Tucson.During her time in Arizona, Solange owned and operated a successful Body Piercing company known as “Body & Sol Piercing” off of the highly populated 4th avenue.
While in Tucson, Solange was given the opportunity to live overseas and work as a Child Therapist for the Department of Defense on a US ARMY Post in Germany.Having grown up in France, Solange looked forward to the prospect of being closer to her family.
Residing in Southern Germany allowed for her passion of traveling to soar. There was never a weekend where Solange was not traveling throughout Europe and visiting interesting and exciting locations.
Upon returning to the United States, Solange continued to advance her career while working in the non-profit sector.She worked with seriously mentally ill criminals on conditional release, based on her workSolange was then asked to assume the position of Director at a Domestic Violence shelter located close to the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. She then shifted gears and went to work in the private sector as IT/Operations Manager at an Investment firm in downtown Miami, Florida.Though the experience in “Corporate America” was worthwhile, she was eager to return to the public service field, where she joined the Reach for the Stars Foundation in Bal Harbor, Florida.
