Returning to school was a necessity for Lisa as a single mother that had spent the previous 15 years raising children and supporting her family. Having always been interested in health sciences, she decided to enroll in a nursing program that would advance a new career in public health while providing better financial security for herself and her family. Despite obstacles with finding financial support, Lisa has continued the pursuit of her degree, earning her AAS in just 2 years while graduating at the top of her class. She has already received her nursing license and is working in the field she wants to be in while completing her BSN at Hunter College.


“I am excited to continue my education and bring what I have learned into my community to help support the lives of families and their children.” – Lisa Daniels
