I am a Brooklyn native, new to plasma and enjoying every minute of it. I've been at the Howard Beach location since it opened in July of 2022. Outside of Olgam, I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family.

I have been working in the plasma industry for over five years and find it very rewarding. I enjoy meeting the donors and hearing their stories as to why they chose to donate plasma. When I am not at the center, I like to play soccer and hang out with my two dogs, Tessa Maria and Georgie.

I am a lifelong New Yorker living in Florida since late 2019. Coming from a history working in Emergency Medical Services, I prioritize the safety of our donors above all else. As a team, we are excited to be your host as you contribute to one of the most essential, lifesaving therapies in the world!
