Hello there! I was born and raised in New Jersey. I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the United Support Services, Inc. Clinical Team. I’ve always had a natural passion for the health care field and strive to provide excellent support to all of my Shining Stars, families and staff. I love the New York Mets, enjoy running and am a big Taylor Swift fan. My lifelong dream is to own an original Bob Ross painting and I'm terrified of small dolls, just FYI.
