“Monica's background in business, education, healthcare, not-for-profits as well as her corporate connections will provide a strong asset to Genesee Community College, and the new Lima Campus Center,” Jerry Kozlowski, dean of Genesee’s six Campus Centers and of The BEST Center. “The dynamic associations she’s made throughout her career with organizations in and around the Rochester area bode well for developing future educational and business opportunities in northern Livingston County.”
