What’s your favorite thing about New York Tech?

I have a really nice connection to New York Tech. My husband was a member of the basketball team and received his B.S. in Business Administration in 1996.

What’s your best advice to students considering New York Tech?

I’m new to New York Tech but not to admissions and financial aid. My advice is always to start the process early, know the requirements and deadlines, visit campus often, and get to know the counselor who’ll be reviewing your application.

What’s your favorite vacation destination?


What are you doing when you’re not at work?

When I’m not at work, I’m at a spinning class, adding to my wine cellar, or catching up on Real Housewives.
