Public Health Environmental Track. Currently working at the Atlantic County Health Department - Environmental Unit as a Principal Registered Environmental Health Specialist
The first person that had an impact on my life at Stockton was Basketball Coach Sue Newcomb. I had been playing basketball since the 4th grade and was a freshman in 1979 who didn't think I was good enough to play college basketball. I was in the gym shooting around and Sue came in and started talking to me about playing for Stockton. I went to the next practice and there started what was my college basketball career! I made lifelong friends at Stockton through basketball! Thanks for talking me into playing Sue!
The next person that impacted my life at Stockton and my career was my Preceptor Mrs. Stowe, who at the time was the Head of the Public Health Program. I had no idea what Public Health was. Mrs. Stowe guided me through the necessary classes and internships at the Atlantic City and Atlantic County Health Departments. Thanks Mrs. Stowe!
And finally, there was Basketball Coach Joe Fussner who is still at Stockton. He is a lot calmer than he used to be! I learned alot of the mental part of the game from Joe. Thanks Joe! See you next bball season!
Stockton had a profound impact on my basketball career. If Sue had not talked to me about joining the team, I never would have continued playing until a back injury forced me to stop playing competitive basketball when I was 41. I have also coached youth league and assisted at the high school level. I have lifelong friends because of basketball at Stockton and a very rewarding career.
