Tell us what you do at the College?
I would like to say what don’t I do? But I am much too modest for that. I currently help plan and organize little projects throughout the college to keep things up to date in the everyday maintenance of the facility. I oversee the maintenance of electrical equipment at all campus buildings. I work closely with the Mechanical Lead and our managers to ensure a well-communicated environment.

After many years of working and completing my study in culinary arts, I had the opportunity to improve my skills in the Abruzzi Italian country side, where I nurtured my culinary skills and where my family pride filled my heart. This experience and time away led me back home where opportunity once again put me on the path to a Restaurant of my own. But that was many, many years ago. Those times are not forgotten and have helped me become the person who I am today.
