Lee-Anne Oros, Ed. D. lives in Barnegat Light, NJ and has lived there most of her adult life. She grew up in Burlington County, but enjoyed every summer and weekend at the family home on Long Beach Island. Her grandparents built a home in Barnegat Light in the 1940s and her parents did the same in the 1970s. The small, colorful borough of Barnegat Light has a special place in Lee-Anne’s life.
A life-long learner and educator, Lee-Anne taught English for several years and moved to north Jersey to pursue leadership opportunities in public schools. She’s worked in the finest, most progressive, and most diverse school districts in New Jersey. She earned her doctoral degree from Seton Hall University in educational leadership and currently works for masters’ programs as an adjunct professor and for Educational Testing Service in Princeton.
She understands the toll and challenge of a cancer diagnosis on a personal level. Through David Caldarella, and other local philanthropists, she’s experienced firsthand how strangers can become friends and friends can become heroes. She is honored to contribute to DDBCF’s important mission and help others know there is hope, support, and love when they need it most.
