Computer Basics Instructor
I have years of computer skill experience from my formal education. I worked with individuals with developmental disabilities for the past ten years providing direct support and as a Manager. I enjoy working with computers, so if you'd like to learn something new or brush up on your computer skills; I look forward to us learning more about the computer together.
I’m a small person with a big heart. I’m the Manager at Blackhorse Career Center and I love what I do. I’ve worked 9 years in the Human Services field. I've worked as an Assistant Instructor for aerobics classes for 2 years in the community. I also instructed basic exercise classes for 3 years for the city of Elizabeth, NJ.
I love cooking and I went to Middlesex county college for hotel restaurant management with a major in culinary. I have done catering and butchery. I was a a chef for years and enjoy cooking for the corporate offices at NJ Transit and Woodbridge Sheraton to name a few. I taught at the East Brunswick High school for over 8 years during the Adult life skills program. I started the pilot program that is now running for The Arc Middlesex County-Around the corner Cafe. We have made many recipes that are fun and creative. Cooking is passion of mine and I hope you will join us for a fun filled class.
