I grew up and lived in New York City until moving to Central Florida in 2011. While always supportive of cancer research, after the loss of my mother in 2012 to advanced stage cancer, advocating for more clinical trials and research to eradicate cancer became something I’m passionate about.

I hold a Bachelors Degree in generalist Social Work from Adelphi University and a Masters Degree in Social Work Administration from Fordham University. I have worked in the non-profit and healthcare sect for more than 20 years and am the founder of a charitable organization for individuals with special needs and their families. In addition, I spent 9 years serving on the board of a preeminent adoption agency in New York. My goal as a board member is to promote advocacy, education and research and help Joey’s Wings grow so they may help as.
