Hoskin Looks to Bring Wealth of Experience to Lead SUNY Sullivan’s Culinary Arts Students to Career Success and Support the Region’s Growing Hospitality Industry
SUNY Sullivan is pleased to welcome Justine Hoskin as the new director of the Catskill Hospitality Institute at SUNY Sullivan. Hoskin is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte, N.C., where she earned degrees in baking & pastry arts, as well as food service management. After working in numerous roles in the food service and hospitality industry in the New York City metro area, Hoskin most recently was Director of Room Operations at Foster Supply Hospitality in Youngsville.
“I want to be able to see the Hospitality industry continue to grow and thrive by welcoming students to SUNY Sullivan, providing them with the tools to be successful, and then opening their eyes to all the great opportunities that are right outside the campus doors,” said Hoskin. “I look forward to working hard alongside other faculty and staff to provide the best outcome for our students.”
“Justine is a welcome addition to the Catskill Hospitality Institute, and the ideal person to lead it now,” said SUNY Sullivan Vice President for Academic Affairs Marc Singer. “She brings a wealth of experience in the local hospitality industry, both on the restaurant side and the hospitality side. She knows the direction the industry is headed, and that knowledge will be crucial as we retool the Hospitality Institute to ensure it aligns with industry needs and where the job market is headed.”
Born and raised in northern New Jersey, Hoskin said she visited the Catskills often as a child and has called Sullivan County home for several years.
“As a child, my grandparents had a farmhouse in Delaware County, which I would visit often in the summers. During my time there I learned to love this area and the Catskills,” she said. “Personally, it’s a new chapter in my career, something I never envisioned years ago. Sullivan County has become home to me, and I’m excited to be a part of the growth and community here.”
