I have taught at Nassau since 1996. I teach various courses including Science Fiction, Women's and Gender Studies and Multi-Disciplinary courses. I also am a scholar of the world's religions. I have extensively published scholarly articles in many national and international publications and wrote two books: "Absent Mother God of the West: A Kali Lover's Journey into Christianity and Judaism" and "In the Beginning IS Desire: Tracing Kali's Footprints in Indian Literature."
I also write a blog called Stand Under the Mother Principle. My fondest memory at NCC is from the WST 110: The Goddess in World Religions class that I created when a young student remembered a complex thought I had taught in the class even after the semester had ended. This inspired me to complete my second book. Nassau Community College is special to me because it gives me the widest possible academic freedom for expanding my horizon and enriching my scholarly pursuits.
My decision to attend NCC after high school stemmed from a variety of reasons. I had a lack of direction on what career to pursue, and I certainly noted the astronomical tuition costs at the schools that offered me admission. When doing my research, I noticed NCC's commitment towards its students.

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.
