He earned a Doctor of Philosophy from Fordham University in 1979, and a Minister of Spiritual Counseling degree from the New Seminary in New York, NY in 1992.
Dr. Vallone subsequently gained valuable expertise in undergraduate education as an adjunct instructor for Aquinas College and as a professor with Pace University, from which he retired in 2006.
