My career began while I was still a student at SUNY Maritime College in The Bronx, NY. As the lone Humanities major in my academic year, I found myself working first as a tutor and eventually as a Teacher’s Assistant (TA) for English courses and manager of the student learning center. In addition, I was a computer science department laboratory monitor and a Resident Assistant (RA). I was named to the Dean’s list multiple semesters, was elected to the Student Government Association, and served two years on the Faculty Student Association.

Biggest Challenge: Balancing undergraduate coursework with United States Coast Guard training.

Biggest Accomplishment: Elected by classmates to represent them in Student Government Association.
