Biography

I spent 17 years at Bristol-Myers Squibb in Supply Chain management and 12 years at Morgan Stanley in Investment Management. I am passionate about creating opportunities for under-resourced students to advance their education. I have been a board member of National Junior Tennis & Learning of Trenton since 2003 and Every Child Valued since 2004. In 1999 I started a modest program to provide financial support for secondary school and community college students in my homeland. In 2014, I founded Island Scholars to expand the previous program and provide college scholarships.
We have awarded 41 scholarships as of July 2018. It has been incredibly rewarding. We also provide mentoring to our students.
