Case Manager, Dean of Students
My name is Maxine and I came from Jamaica when I was only 15 years old. A year into high school I had to navigate the college application process. It was difficult, as my parents were also new to the US and had no idea how to help me.Through mentors and dedicated teachers, I was able to secure a spot at Binghamton University. Figuring out where you belong and how to fit in was always a struggle. Developing the confidence to advocate for myself was difficult but here I am choosing a profession that seeks to help others.
I love traveling and have been to 45 of the 50 United States. I also enjoy gardening, going to the movies and quilting.
One mantra I live by is "the race is not for the swift, you just need to get to the finish line".
