“I grew up in Monmouth County and have called Brookdale Community College my home for more than 14 years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Monmouth University and I’m currently working towards my Master’s Degree in Higher Education.
As the Associate Director of Admissions, I’m involved in many aspects of successful transitions to Brookdale. As such, I supervise the Student Ambassador Program for the office. This initiative helps connect current students with prospective students and families, while also developing ambassador leadership skills. Since joining the Brookdale community, I have had the pleasure of assisting thousands of students and families with their college enrollment.”

“I’m a longtime resident of Monmouth County, where I’ve worked in various aspects of social justice, as Chair of the Monmouth County Human Relations Commission. As a former and current Board Member of Lunch Break and The T. Thomas Fortune Cultural Center respectively, I’ve witnessed first-hand, the road blocks that plague certain communities. My efforts to make education accessible for all, have paved a path to Brookdale Community College; a benchmark for exceptional, affordable academic advancement.
As a recent addition to the Brookdale family, I’m excited to utilize my Hofstra University Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and Fine Arts, and experience in corporate management, to help facilitate bright and promising futures.
There’s no better beginning, than Brookdale!”
