Helen is a local mom, raised in Smithtown, and now over 15 years in Miller Place.  After earning a B.A. in History from St. Joseph's College in Patchogue, she pursued her law degree from Touro College in Central Islip where she worked in public service at the district court, clerked for private practice, and practiced real estate law.  Now she is raising her two kids.  She loves the learning, creativity, challenges, and connections of publishing Macaroni Kid, meeting local families, and working with local companies.
