Director, Continuing Education & Workforce Development, Hudson County Community College, Jersey City, New Jersey

Catherina Mirasol has been with Hudson County Community College for over ten years. Currently the Director for Continuing Education & Workforce Development, she leads a team of bright, energetic and creative minds in a department whose aim is to promote the College’s mission and vision through professional, certificate, personal enrichment, and workforce training programs. Overseeing Continuing Education is a homecoming of sorts since she began in 2006 as Administrative Assistant for that department. While providing administrative support to the Vice President of Continuing Education and then to the Dean of Community Education, she also managed two key programs: Community Partnerships in Hotel Employment (CPHE) and New Pathways to Teaching in NJ (NPTNJ). She was also part of the Culinary Conference Center startup team. Catherina has ten years of accounting experience and comes from a varied work background. She has been a self-employed medical biller, central registration supervisor for a hospital, finance assistant for a computer storage and backup manufacturer, and purchasing manager at a private elementary school. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from The College of Mount St. Vincent and an Associate Degree in Nursing from Hudson County Community College.
