Jamie Anderson '20

Sacrifice Is Worth It

Jamie Anderson ’20 is set to graduate from the College’s nursing program. She has been working non-stop, sometimes for 40-hour shifts, as an EMT for the Cliffside Park EMS Center and in St. Joseph’s Hospital critical care unit. Almost all the patients she has cared for are Covid-19 positive. “It hasn't been easy, taking mothers and fathers away from their families, watching the families stand on their porches as we place their loved ones in the ambulance never knowing if they will see them again. I often feel helpless, wondering why I even chose to become a nurse, and then you see one vented patient make it out, home to their family and you realize all the sacrifices are worth it.”

Cathlynne Valmores ’16

Thankful for the Support

Cathlynne Valmores ’16 works at The Valley Hospital and is currently in studying in Ramapo’s MSN Family Nurse Practitioner program. She has collaborated with the College’s undergraduate nursing program as an adjunct clinical instructor for senior nursing students. “I am thankful for all the support from Ramapo and the community, and I want to give a special shoutout to the Wyckoff Girl Scout troop for donating headbands to the hospital!”

Joseph Giglio Helping North Jersey Residents

Helping North Jersey Residents

As the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way many of us live right now, sophomore marketing major Joseph Giglio saw an opportunity to help. “I started this business just because I noticed an untapped service that people were so desperately in need of,” says Giglio about the launch of We Shop for You North Jersey, which provides personal shopping services to residents in North Jersey. Despite being furloughed from his part-time job, his entrepreneurial spirit is not the main reason he began the service. “My sole purpose for this service is doing a positive thing during this pandemic. The money isn't a huge deal for me but I heard all these stories of people getting ripped off by other delivery services...and decided that something needed to be done.”
