I was born and raised in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. I moved to Gerritsen Beach years later and currently live there. I attended PS 97, 277, Shell Bank JHS, Abraham Lincoln HS, Brooklyn College and St. Francis College. I have undergraduate degrees in Accounting CPA Qualifying, Finance and Masters Degrees in Childhood Education 1-6 and Students with Disabilities in 1-6. I hold two teaching credentials in both. I worked for the DOE beginning in 2007 and came to GSCA in 2017. My husband Jesse and I have three young boys named Matteo, Nico and Manolo.
