“My degree in Biology from New Jersey City University opened the door to a 21 year career in the U.S. Army where I continued to learn, grow and serve as a healthcare plans, operations, security, training and intelligence professional. After retiring from the Army in 2003 at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, I was joined Booz Allen Hamilton where my healthcare planning experience was once again put to use providing support services to the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security and Health & Human Services as an emergency management and health preparedness consultant. I also had the opportunity to prepare emergency management plans and exercises in the commercial healthcare sector as well.”
