Athenae  grew up in the small farming and fishing area Downe Township New Port/Fortescue New Jersey and she has always valued family and has a deep love and passion for helping people. She has continued to be true to this passion with advocacy for the foster care community, helping and providing humanitarian aid to the people of Haiti with the assistance of water well construction & other continued projects in that area.
