I have been a faculty member at NCC for the past 27 years, teaching Fundamentals of Nursing, and am a proud graduate of the NCC nursing program myself. I'm also a geriatric nurse practitioner and have made presentations on advance directives, aging and social change and conflict resolution, among others. My membership in the Black Nurse Association, Nurse Practitioners of Long Island, and the National League for Nurses is important to me. In 1983, I established a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and continue to provide health teaching in the Nassau County and Brooklyn communities.

For the past few years, I have enjoyed providing health information on "Your Family’s Health" on WHPC, the voice of Nassau Community College. It's a weekly podcast with special guests from around the country discussing health care issues and trends. It's special to me to mentor nurses who are completing their master's degree in nursing. I'm grateful to pay excellence in nursing forward to the future generation of nurses.

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.

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.
