Ken first started out as an intern for New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program (NJMEP). After graduating from college, Ken came on full time to work as a Project Support Specialist for the remainder of 2021 and worked on special projects with NJMEP’s COO. Ken is now working as Advocacy & Operations Support at NJMEP. This role has him helping each of these teams better carry out their responsibilities at NJMEP.
Prior to working at NJMEP, Ken worked in various part-time and summer jobs. He worked as camp staff for two summers at Sabattis Adventure Camp in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. He then spent five years working for his town’s recreation department as a lifeguard and as an aide to the recreation director. In Ken’s senior year of high school, he worked as an intern for his town’s township manager and provided support to the manager’s office as well as gained an education on local government. Ken’s last job before joining NJMEP was working as a legislative aide for the late State Senator Anthony R. Bucco. While in the Senator’s office, Ken worked on sending communications to constituents about different pieces of legislation and doing some light constituent work. After the passing of Senator Bucco, Ken was offered to come and intern at NJMEP by the CEO, John W. Kennedy.
Outside of his formal work experience, Ken was an accomplished student and still is an active member of his local community. Ken went to County College of Morris and Fairleigh Dickinson University to study History. While going to these colleges, Ken was inducted into the honor societies of Phi Theta Kappa and Phi Alpha Theta as well as graduated magnum cum laude from both schools. Being a proud Eagle Scout and formerly active Boy Scout, Ken believes in helping and improving one’s community, so he continues to stay involved in his town and is part of his local Rotary Club, which helps fundraise and do various service projects around their community.
