Professional: Born and raised in New York City, I went on to complete my undergraduate degree in Ohio. I’ve spent 20 years working in the Alcohol and Drug Counseling field, usually involved in new innovative programs and working on teams to provide services for at-risk or under-served populations. I am familiar with assessment, evaluation and treatment planning; individual, group and family counseling, crisis intervention. As a prevention/intervention specialist in public schools I provided consultation and networking with other community agencies and groups , community outreach projects working with families, courts, schools, shelter homes, Children’s Services and other youth services. After 25 years of working in health services I returned to academia to complete my graduate studies and began teaching at the college/university level. I have a great passion for learning and for teaching, but especially for practical application of health information. For my entire career, health has consistently been my focus. I am delighted to contribute my knowledge and expertise in classroom instruction.
