I received a bachelor's degree in Communication Media Management from the State University of New York at New Paltz. Since then I have worked for a news-gathering organization, a public relations firm, a non-profit organization, an information technology company, and institutions of higher learning.


After I earned my master's degree from Baruch, I received a Certificate in Paralegal Studies from Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus.
