“Enhancing the lives of those around me has always been of great importance. Blending 18 years of clinical experience and my pedagogical skills affords me the opportunity to present a more comprehensive and cohesive curriculum for the students at LIU- Post. To possess appropriate knowledge and further, to have the ability to implement that knowledge to positively impact the lives of those around us should be everybody’s aspiration. Long Island University provides a wonderful forum for the exchange of ideas and for personal growth.”  - SRT
