Environmental Studies (Soil and Water Resources). Now living in Ewing. I came to Stockton in 1988 at age 37 as a nontraditional student, a single mom on welfare armed with only an Associate Degree in Horticulture and a scholarship into Stockton's Environmental Studies Program. After taking my first Ecology course with Mike "Guru" Geller, I was smitten with learning about the environment and I knew my childhood affinity with nature was becoming a reality. What meant the most to me was the camaraderie and mentorship of professors Claude Epstein, Ray Mueller, Mike Hozik and Matt Landau. Being a "rock hound" as a child, I especially loved the geology club and field trips as well as the Pinelands canoe trips!! Upon graduation, I began a career as a Restoration Ecologist and Wetlands Specialist. My experience at Stockton brought meaning, purpose and hope into my life. Now I get paid to hang out by the river and bring home frogs!!
