Being a cheer and gymnastics mom is like being the human equivalent of a human pyramid. I'm always on top of things, balancing schedules, flipping through family activities, and trying not to topple over in the process!

As a first-generation college student, Janet had the opportunity to intern in the Procurement Services Department at New Jersey City University while pursuing her bachelor's degree. This experience gave her practical insights into procurement processes and the importance of efficient resource management. Janet then ventured into the credit union sector, where she spent a year utilizing her financial expertise and attention to detail. However, her passion for higher education led her to join the Hudson County Community College family in 2012 as an office assistant in the Office of Student Affairs. Following a short hiatus to focus on raising her child, she briefly pivoted her career towards accounting, gaining valuable experience working for financial institutions and other companies. In 2021, with a deep-rooted connection to Jersey City and an unwavering commitment to education, Janet eagerly returned to Hudson County Community College to join the President's Office as an Executive Administrative Assistant.
