Bronx Community College
12 years ago I began my career in higher education as a Freshman Counselor for the Higher Educational Opportunity Program (HEOP) at Hofstra University. Since then I have worked in the areas of Admissions, Financial Aid, Academic Advisement, and Instruction. Most memorable are the 9-years I have dedicated to the promise and pathway to success that the City University of New York (CUNY) Community colleges offers its students.
Previous to assuming the role as ASAP Director, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Public Administration and served as the ASAP Assistant Director and before then as an ASAP Senior Academic Advisor. As ASAP has grown and expanded to serve many more students I have had the opportunity to continue my commitment and dedication to developing, planning and executing successful strategic initiatives in the areas of student enrollment, retention and evaluation.
My true inspiration comes from the many ASAP students who despite their circumstances are driven, determined and resilient and are unwavering in their pursuit to gain a higher level of education. I am proud of the BCC ASAP team that supports all of our students and bring a diverse set of experiences and talents that have been integral in both the success of our students and our program.
