Growing up, Janet was instilled with a strong foundation of manners and morals that
were nurtured within her home. These values have shaped her professional journey as
an Executive Administrative Assistant. 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. This homecoming presents a unique opportunity to blend her
administrative skills, financial acumen, and passion for higher education, ensuring
the success and growth of the institution.
