- Senior Instructor, Criminal Justice
In Jan. 2007 after a 36 year career, I retired from the Westchester County Dept. of Correction. I started my career as a correction officer and climbed through the ranks retiring as Deputy Commissioner, where I was responsible for running the daily operations of the correctional facility. In December of 2007, I began teaching as an adjunct professor at Mercy College.
As the Program Coordinator and Lecturer in the Criminal Justice Program, in addition to teaching, I mentor students and interact with professors addressing program needs. I assist the Department Chair and Director with the needs of the Criminal Justice Program; provide coverage and participate in Search Committees, Open Houses and other school-wide events.
