    Why do you think you were nominated by your peers to be a featured HEO?

Because of my high level of commitment, tenacity to see the job to completion, open and receptive to any questions, always willing to help above and beyond and clearly a spirit of love and commitment to the job and the people I work with and to the team.

Because I have the credibility of knowledge, experience and history of the systems and pathways of HR, the hunter college community knows they can always count on me.Many people have shared that I am reliable and solid.It's a great feeling!I am so very thankful and blessed!!

    What's the best advice you can offer? Be humble; identify and practice sensitivity with the people you serve and never forget where you come from.

Tell us two things personally or professionally that you would like us to know about you. Love to travel and spend time with family and friends. I have the tendency to be a Workaholic. I need to come up for air sometimes


Thank you to all of you for your recommendation.I am so grateful and appreciative.
