Senior Executive Secretary for International Student Affairs
202 Roosevelt Hall
I have been working at Hofstra for 33 years. My first job was as a stack attendant in the library. I was a stack attendant for two years. My other positions were in the Circulation Department, Center for University Advisement and now International Student Affairs.
Of all the positions I have had, International Student Affairs is my favorite. I enjoy meeting the students from different cultures and learning about their countries. Part of my job is to enter all their visa information into the computer and mailing immigration documents to new international students. I have become an expert at multi-tasking. I attended four weddings of international students: two on Long Island, one in Washington, D.C. and one in Ochos Rios, Jamaica.
I grew up in Uniondale until I got married in 1973 and moved to Brooklyn. I lived there for four years until my husband and I bought a house in Uniondale which ended up being one street from my childhood home. I have four children, three boys and a girl. I now live in Huntington Station with two of my sons.
I love dogs and have two, a chocolate lab named Smokey and a pit bull mix called Pennys. I am an avid sports fan of the Mets, Islanders, Giants and Knicks. I collect dolls and have at least 1000. I also love shoes and have over 400 pairs. I enjoy going to rock concerts. I met every member of my favorite group, Chicago. All in all, life is good!×
