About Our Panelists

Sherisse Brown
Sherisse has over 15 years of experience working in a medical library. After receiving her master’s degree from Touro University Graduate School of Technology in 2018, she went on to become a Corporate Training/Learning Specialist at Weill Cornell Medicine. Sherisse has held her current position for the past three years. In 2018, Sherisse was inducted into Kappa Delta Pi - International Honor Society in Education. Since April 2019, she has been a guest alumni speaker for Professor Marty Herskowitz’s Effective Oral and Written Communication for Managers course (MSIN 607). Also, Sherisse mentors many of Professor Marty Herskowitz’s students on a regular basis.

Ginamarie Lyons
Ginamarie is currently in her final semester in the Master of Science in Instructional Technology program and will be graduating from this program in September. During her time at Touro, she was offered many opportunities, one being an Intern for the Office of Online Higher Education’s Instructional Design team from 2020 until her graduation in 2022, and then being nominated for the Graduate School of Technology’s Student Spotlight. In May of 2020, she graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Digital Media Technologies with a Concentration in TV and Film from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania and completed the program in 3 years. Before entering her undergrad, Ginamarie really had a difficult time figuring out what she wanted to pursue a career in. She comes from a family of teachers, doctors, pharmacists, writers, engineers, and she didn't really want to follow in their footsteps because she wanted to experience something different. Ginamarie had a feeling that I would end up teaching something, but she wasn't too sure what. She knew she wanted to be in the technology field too but didn't find her niche quite yet. After searching around, she learned more about her undergrad major and fell in love with DMT and when it came to pursing a master’s degree, she found that Touro's Instructional Technology Program in the Corporate Track was for her. Ginamarie knew she had finally found her niche of Instructional Design.

Josephine Coco
Josephine is a recent Touro Graduate School of Technology Alumni from the Class of 2022, where she earned a Master of Science in Instructional Technology, Corporate Track. As a lifelong enthusiastic learner and educator, she has developed a diversified skill set along her educational path. Josephine’s passion to learn and grow continuously drives her to excel. She believes every day is a chance to learn something new. Josephine’s goal is to design dynamic and engaging resources, and personalized learning experiences that put learners in the driver's seat. She enjoys working with fellow enthusiasts that foster and encourage creativity, embrace diverse perspectives, and collaborate to achieve our goals.
