After high school, Eryne worked for various companies while attending Mercer County Community College where she obtained an Associates in Paralegal Studies. A devout Democrat she worked at the election polls and volunteered for multiple political campaigns.
Eryne’s love and devotion to her son lead her to work with many child advocacy programs such as NJ After 3 and Mercer County S.M.I.L.E/Gear-Up. An active PTA mom at Rivera and Joyce Kilmer Elementary Schools she also Volunteered at the boys and Girls Club of America where she taught culinary arts to the youth participants. She worked as a volunteer at the Salvation Army’s Friday night feedings, Toys for Tots, Woman’s Ministry, and Corps Cadet Programs. Most passionately involved with the Mercer County Special Services School System, her dedication to the autistic community derived from her beloved autistic family members, including her eldest son, two brothers, and young cousin.
