I have been an instructor at Nassau Community College since 2015, beginning as an adjunct instructor and currently as a full-time faculty member in the Criminal Justice Department. I teach introductory courses, as well as the more specialized courses of Understanding Criminal Behavior, Criminal Law, and Criminal Procedure.

Before coming to NCC, I was an Assistant District Attorney in the Kings County District Attorney’s Office (in Brooklyn, NY) assigned to the Sex Crimes and Special Victims Bureau. I thoroughly enjoy bringing my past experiences as a prosecutor into the classroom to educate the students.

I am most proud of our students when I receive an email from a former NCC student telling me that he/she/they have begun to realize their dreams. Many students will contact me to tell me they have done well on a Law Enforcement entrance exam, been called by a local Law Enforcement agency to join, or have successfully graduated from their 4-year school after starting their collegiate education at NCC. It’s then that I am most grateful to have played a small part in their success!

I am truly honored to educate the future Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice professionals of Nassau County and beyond.

I am a Liberal Arts major in my second year at NCC. The biggest reason why I chose Nassau Community College is that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life after high school and saw NCC as the perfect place to explore that.

I am a marketing major and will graduate in 2025. After a rough start at a large four-year university, I chose to attend Nassau Community College. It has a nice campus, a great community, and besides — my mom went here! My best experience so far has been my in-class presentations.

I transferred to NCC to pursue a degree in Nursing. After some sudden life-changing events I needed to be back home with my family. Nassau was the best educational opportunity for me, especially considering my chosen career path. One of my favorite experiences at the College so far has been forming a sense of community with my peers.

For my first semester of college, I attended a large university out of state. As the semester went on, I was feeling more and more detached from the experience. After some contemplation I decided that coming back home for college would be my best choice.

My major is Biology and I am in my second year at NCC. I originally came to Nassau Community College because of the smaller class sizes and proximity to my home but the terrific faculty and flexible class schedules are great as well. As a science major, I would have to say one of my favorite experiences at Nassau has been the hands-on work that we do in the labs during biology classes.
