It is my honor to be a part of the Queens County St. Patrick’s Parade and to be able to celebrate with many of Rockaway’s residents. I am proud to be the Director of Emergency Services at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital for the last two-and-a-half years. It is the Hospital’s goal, as well as my personal goal, to provide the best medical care to the people of the Rockaways and surrounding communities.
I have had the pleasure of becoming involved with the Rockaway community. I have been a member of the Kiwanis Club for six years, helping to meet the needs of children and families. As Captain of the “Victoria’s Secret Team” at the American Cancer Society’s Rockaway Relay for Life for 10 years, we have raised nearly $60,000, to hopefully someday find a cure for cancer. I have also been a participant in the American Cancer Society’s Annual
