After serving his country in Iraq, experiencing combat related injuries, suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and learning how to become a civilian again, Damon found Brookdale. He has since been on a journey of education and helping others that has far exceeded his expectations! Please join us on Veterans Day to hear how one solider overcame the challenges of service to our nation and how he now uses his life experience to support other veterans.

December 2 @ 11:45 Headshot of Mary Travostino.

Mary came to Brookdale Community College as a non-traditional student looking for a new career. This sent her on a journey she never expected – one that went full circle from confronting challenges from the past and setting her free to a place of self-love and acceptance. Join us as she shares her story of triumph and self-care!
