- Professional background/areas of expertise: I completed my undergraduate degree in nursing from Binghamton University and then went on to work on a Pediatric Physical Rehabilitation Unit at NYC Medical Center while pursuing my master’s degree in nursing at Hunter College. I began my NP career in a rural school based health center moving on to private practice and now returning to my passion which is community health. I have been promoting and caring for the health of children for 18 years. Maintaining children’s health and specifically adolescent health is my area of expertise.

I am excited to get to know the children and their families as well as the teachers and staff members in the district. I feel the most at home in a school setting having grown up with a mother as an educator and volunteering in schools since a teenager. This will be an exciting year ahead!
