Truly a person of the community, Quanette has built her multifaceted career completely in Cape May County. She is a small business owner and has operated a local hair salon for over 18 years.

In 2020, Quanette was elected President of the Cape May County NAACP and is proud of the projects she participated in and initiated during her tenure. Among many achievements, the group successfully advocated for local housing authorities to amend their policies on discriminatory no-trespass lists under Quanette’s leadership. The group has also focused on meeting resident needs, including distribution of food, school supplies, and hoodies, and on registering voters to increase community participation in the political landscape.
Quanette currently serves as an executive board member for Habitat for Humanity and for the Cape May County NAACP, and is Vice President of Middle Township Democratic Club. She is a member of the Middle Township Law Enforcement Engagement Committee as well as the County Prosecutor’s Social Justice Committee.
