Cydney Wallace is a Torah observant wife and mother of four, born and raised on the south side of Chicago. She joined JCUA after becoming increasingly frustrated with how the 2016 election was going. Cydney graduated high school a year early and attended Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, where she met her husband of nearly thirteen years, though she was unable to finish school due to a lack of funds. Working exclusively in customer service jobs, her first job as a grocery store stocker in Sandy Springs, GA paid her just $5.45/hr in 2004. Cydney began working for Epiq Global (formerly Document Technologies, Inc.) in 2011 pushing a mail cart and, as of April 2019, became a member of the Operations Team as the Resource Select Team Manager. After a childhood of constantly moving/being evicted, and a stint of homelessness in college, Cydney and her husband Brent bought their first home in Chicago Lawn/Marquette Park to be within walking distance of Beth Shalom B’Nai Zaken Ethiopian Hebrew congregation.
