I have been an instructor at Nassau Community College since 2015, beginning as an adjunct instructor and currently as a full-time faculty member in the Criminal Justice Department. I teach introductory courses, as well as the more specialized courses of Understanding Criminal Behavior, Criminal Law, and Criminal Procedure.

Before coming to NCC, I was an Assistant District Attorney in the Kings County District Attorney’s Office (in Brooklyn, NY) assigned to the Sex Crimes and Special Victims Bureau. I thoroughly enjoy bringing my past experiences as a prosecutor into the classroom to educate the students.

I am most proud of our students when I receive an email from a former NCC student telling me that he/she/they have begun to realize their dreams. Many students will contact me to tell me they have done well on a Law Enforcement entrance exam, been called by a local Law Enforcement agency to join, or have successfully graduated from their 4-year school after starting their collegiate education at NCC. It’s then that I am most grateful to have played a small part in their success!

I am truly honored to educate the future Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice professionals of Nassau County and beyond.

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.
