I work at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. I am Associate Director for Research Administration in the Department of Genetic and Genomic Sciences. I am also the President of my Co-op Board and the Treasurer of the Parent Teacher Association for my 2nd grader’s public school.
More personally, I am an African American mother of two with a strong desire to properly educate my children. Helping them become well-rounded individuals who will one day make a positive contribution to society is my goal. Trust, honesty, and respect are qualities that I strive to maintain and look for in kind. I grew up surrounded by my large extended family where I was taught to be kind, independent and responsible. Securing the best for my family is important but I also find that it is important to extend a hand to others whether it’s a need they have or even information that is helpful.
