What does being a TCNJ Alumnus mean to you?

My educational experiences and the knowledge obtained at the college allowed me to be successful in my professional endeavors. I enjoyed many years of teaching elementary school aged-children and serving as a Coordinator of medical surge capacity for large-scale emergencies for the State of New Jersey. The field of health is a dynamic discipline to work in. While attending college, I had outstanding college professors that served as role models for me. These individuals were outstanding educators in the field of Health and Physical Education. They demonstrated effective teaching strategies and good character characteristics that greatly impacted my life and having a career in Health.

I am looking forward to serving on the TCNJ HES Alumni Board and representing the graduates of our department, while supporting the mission and goals of the HES Alumni Board.
