I was hired in 2006 as adjunct faculty and 2007 as full-time faculty. Prior to this, I had been teaching and doing research at the Max-Planck Institute for Molecular Biology in Berlin (Germany), SUNY Stony Brook and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories.  

NCC is special to me because of the dedicated faculty we have and the student support we offer. The Carol Farber Honors Program, the Achilles Program, the Aspires Program, the Writing Center and other initiatives offer student support and a large variety of student clubs enable students to develop leadership and teamworking skills. I believe that our small classes not only help students to learn better but also provide a safe environment to learn soft skills, to participate in discussions, to ask questions and to make friends. I love to get students excited about Biology and what nature can teach us.

I am a first-generation college student and have been paying my way through college. I had previously attended NCC because of its affordability and location. I had such good memories from my first time attending that it made sense to go back to finish my degree. People also recommended Nassau's Surgical Technology program to me because it is one of the best in the area.

Going back to school was honestly the best choice for me. As an adult student, I felt focused and goal driven because I knew the expectations of the real world. The NCC - SUNY Empire State College Multi-Award Nursing Program prepared me for my future in so many ways.

NCC was a smart choice for me because I wasn't really sure what my passion was. Nassau gave me a chance to figure it out while not having to carry the financial burden of switching my major should I want to make a change.
