Jonnea Birdine

Program Coordinator, Spring 2019 Intern

Hello, my name is Jonnea Birdine. I’m originally from Maryland, but moved to Charlotte, NC about 8 years ago to attend Johnson & Wales University and never made it back home. I am currently pursuing my MBA in Human Resource Management. I love books that you can’t put down, songs that you can’t stop singing, and TV shows you can’t stop binging. And one day I want to be the figure young girls looks up to.
