I grew up in the Hudson Valley, and then attended college in the Capital District. I fell in love with the diversity of the area and have lived here ever since! The Capital District is full of life, and is at a great advantage point to travel all over the Northeast. Exploring new areas is a passion of mine, and my kitty Eleanor comes along in her backpack occasionally as well. In our spare time at home we love doing projects like crocheting together and cooking for our friends and family. I look forward to helping you acclimate to independent living while at ACPHS!

I am from Western New York, but have lived in Albany since attending college in the Capital Region. I have the opportunity to work with students from the time they express interest in ACPHS until they complete their master's program. The 招生 office is a frequent stop for students currently enrolled at ACPHS – as a result, we can readily assist them as they progress towards their degree.

I have lived in the Albany area for almost my whole life, so I know the hidden gems that can be found just around the corner. Graduate 招生 is rewarding and fulfilling work, and I believe it opens a lot of opportunities for students. ACPHS has a lot to offer, and the students are amazing! In my spare time, I love to travel, go rock climbing, catch a live show, or read on the couch with my cat Snowball. I look forward to working with you!

Originally from the 萨拉托加 area, I’ve had the pleasure of attending college and working in higher education in the Capital District. Whether a student is looking for an internship, job opportunities, or leisurely activities, the Albany area has it all. I’m very excited to introduce new students to the area and help guide them through the college application process.

ACPHS has a lot to offer and I’m a firm believer in strength of our academic outcomes. Outside of my passion for higher education, you can usually find me at farmers markets, catching a live show, or grabbing a bite to eat at the best eateries the region has to offer!

I was born and raised on the Island of Jamaica. In May of 2000, my family and I migrated to Albany NY where I completed high school. After college, I spent 12 years in Residence Life in all capacities 支持ing students as they enter college. Having migrated to the Capital Region, I would do it all over again. The rich culture and amazing adventures in surrounding areas makes Albany a wonderful place to live and study. I look forward in sharing what the Capital Region and ACPHS has to offer you.
