What brought you to Brookdale?
A career change.

Describe one or more of your biggest achievements as a Brookdale faculty member:
My biggest achievement, every year, is seeing a new graduating class of radiologic technologists.

Do you work outside of the college?
I am a radiologic technologist at Monmouth Medical South, and I also run a non-profit called Women’s Weekend NJ Inc. We raise money for women in need.

What do you think separates Brookdale from other colleges?
What separates Brookdale from the rest? The people. I have never been involved with such a large group of people who have one goal in mind. That goal is the students and their success. You can walk through any building and see people smiling, saying hello to each other, and asking students or visitors if they need help. Everyone is here for the students. I feel, and I know that the college feels, that if the students are successful Brookdale will be successful.

Would you recommend that students take a class in your department?
Of course I would recommend our radiology program to other students. I brag about our program all the time.
