I’ve been a professor at Middlesex County College since 1993. During that time, I have taught many classes, including Statistics I and II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Freshman Math, Technical Math, and Developmental Math. Before coming to Middlesex, I taught high school for many years and also did adjunct work at both Kean University and Union County College.
In my spare time, I enjoy a variety of activities, including reading, doing counted cross-stitch, showing pure-breed cats, traveling, doing computer work, and lately, going to a gym.
The most exciting thing is what happened to me on January 5, 2004. For many years, I have had an issue with my weight and had been on numerous diets, losing weight and then re-gaining it and more. I finally decided that enough was enough and had gastric bypass surgery. I have lost 165 pounds and am somewhat stable. In July 2005, I had plastic surgery to remove excess skin and embedded fat on both my upper arms and tummy. The best thing about the gastric bypass surgery is that I am finally learning how much I should be eating; most diets do not work as they are not a life style change.
