She’s held numerous and varied positions over the years, in areas such as Human Resources, Shared Services, and Public Awareness. She also served as Chief of Staff to the Executive VP and COO of Gas Distribution.

The festive night included a VIP reception, a networking expo and dinner before the awards ceremony. Geraldo Rivera served as special guest of the event and received The Man of the Year Award.

The presenting sponsor for the event was Staten Island University Hospital/Northwell Health; the other sponsors were Empire State Bank, National Grid, Investors Bank, New York Community Family of Banks, Sansone Auto Mall, Chase Bank, the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce and the Staten Island Economic Development Corporation (SIEDC).
