During Career and Technical Education Month in February, the New Jersey Council on County Vocational Technical Schools is highlighting successful graduates of the county’s 21 vocational technical schools.
Natalie Quindlen graduated from Gloucester County Institute of Technology’s finance and business management program.
After high school, she attended University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in health sciences. She went on to receive a doctorate of occupational therapy, also from the University of the Sciences.
She works in eight different intensive care units at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware.
“Going to GCIT not only helped prepare me for the challenging academics at both an undergraduate and a graduate level, but it also sparked my love for health sciences,” Quindlen said. “With the hands-on science classes and labs at GCIT, I was more than prepared to dive into further training, and eventually my career, in the health science field. Looking back, GCIT put me on exactly the right path I needed to be on.”
