Kevin grew up in Huntington, Long Island, and graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in Finance. He spent 32 years on Wall Street, working international hours for much of that time. 

Kevin’s unique work schedule allowed him to help care for his elderly father. “My dad suffered from Dementia, heart disease and COPD,” said Kevin, “and it became increasingly difficult for my aging mom to care for him alone. I finished work at noon, so I was able to visit regularly. I would take Dad out to enjoy favorite activities like watching sports & eating Italian food.  My father’s increasingly fragile health caused him great anxiety. But I’ll always remember the look of relief on his face whenever I showed up; like he knew that he was safe, and that I would take care of him.It was incredibly rewarding for me to help my Dad get the care he needed in his later years.”

Having afternoons free also allowed Kevin a chance to share his love of lacrosse with Inner-City students by volunteering in programs like Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership and CityLax in the Bronx.

Kevin has also been a dedicated father to his two sons, including a 24-yr-old with Asperger’s Syndrome. “It’s been extremely gratifying to advocate for my son to get the support & services he needs to become more self-sufficient, and to watch him become an independent adult."

In 2015, Kevin’s desire to help others recently took him to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where he helped St. Luke Foundation paint hospital rooms and build homes for residents whose lives had been ravaged by Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake. Kevin described the experience as “life-changing,” and became convinced that he wanted to pursue a career that involved greater service to others.

Kevin found his calling when a former Wall Street co-worker introduced him to Right at Home. "My friend kept telling me how rewarding he found his new career in Home Care. I saw the satisfaction he got helping seniors in his community, and knew I wanted to be a part of that.”
