About Robert

Seasoned professional with eleven years of various non-profit (Higher Education Administration, Veteran Service Organization, Social Services) experience.

In my current role I serve as the Assistant Director for Student Veteran Services at The New School, a private non-profit University based in the heart of New York City. With over forty-five undergraduate academic major offerings, robust graduate programs which includes doctorate degrees across its five major Colleges including the world renowned Parsons School of Design, I am the University-wide point-of-contact for all its military connected students including military service members, veterans and family members. An innovative school at its core, I take great pride assisting this deserving population as they transition from combat to classroom to career, this also includes students who take courses at Parsons Paris, by providing holistic assistance in their academic, financial, social and professional development.

In my previous role with American Corporate Partners (ACP), in addition to supporting 90+ mentorships, I had the privilege of spearheading their global military base and university outreach recruitment and relations. I led a team working toward the goal of having as many service members, veterans and active-duty spouses take advantage of their free one-on-one tailored mentoring program. I also served as the Team Lead of this platform, ACP AdvisorNet.

Prior to that role, I founded and led all military veteran initiatives, events and programming for the Office of Military Veteran Services at Pace University. I begun my professional career serving as the Psychometrician at Lincoln Hall, a youth adjudicated facility for juvenile delinquents.

I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and am Board Certified. On a Pier Diem basis I have served as a Chemical Dependency Therapist at “The Turning Point,” a 55-bed inpatient drug and alcohol detoxification and rehabilitation unit in MidHudson Regional Hospital located in Poughkeepsie, NY, a member of Westchester Medical Center Health Hospitals.
