BA in Broadcast & Communications, Buffalo State University


I love people especially our youth! I have had the privilege of collaborating with youth for nearly 25 years, actively participating in various roles. Throughout my career, I have successfully managed afterschool programs, led youth groups in Sunday school, and utilized my communications and broadcasting degree to pursue a fulfilling career in the television industry for almost 15 years. Additionally, I have been able to establish and oversee my own afterschool video production program, empowering young individuals to express their voices through self-produced videos. These remarkable creations have been showcased in annual film festivals, which have brought me immense joy and a sense of fulfillment. I am particularly passionate about driving new initiatives that foster progress, forge connections, and embrace creativity, all while ensuring success and personal growth for all involved.
