Helene graduated from Montclair State University where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Music Therapy. Her insight into the complimentary teaching strategies in Music Therapy and Montessori Education led her to design a program that combined Music Therapy techniques with Montessori Philosophy to teach preschool music and movement in nontraditional ways. In her role as Music Consultant, she facilitated sessions to introduce music and movement to preschool children in Montessori Schools in Northern New Jersey.
Her commitment to community and volunteering has extended to becoming a member of the Community Advisory Board of WFUV Radio and an appointed member of the Ramsey Fine Arts Council in her hometown in Ramsey, New Jersey. The mission of the council is to bring the arts and cultural events to the community.
