I am originally from Wyoming and moved to the Capital District in 2013 by way of Illinois, Vermont, and Missouri. I am an avid fly fisherman, woodworker, and welder. When choosing a college, it is important to collect all of the information you can and base your decision on everything the school and surrounding area have to offer. I value the opportunity to guide students and families through this process. P.S. - I enjoy visiting our Vermont Campus and will talk maple syrup with anyone who will listen!

I have had the pleasure of being at the College since 2008, which means I have been able to watch hundreds of students navigate the college admissions process, enroll at ACPHS, and thrive in our programs. I am now the proud former admissions counselor of medical students/residents, Ph.D. candidates, and pharmacists working in a variety of fields. When I’m working and not working, I particularly enjoy travel, as well reading travel guides and memoirs.

I grew up locally in Rotterdam Junction, graduated from Schalmont High School, and now make my home in Ballston Spa. I have dedicated my career and studies to higher education and the successful transition of students to our institution. I get great satisfaction out of watching the students at ACPHS grow and succeed at a high level. The students at the College are the friendliest group of individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, and they really make working here special.

I am a native of Auburn, NY, who found my way to the Capital District in 2006. There are plenty of things to do in this area, whether it be spending the day in Washington Park, or enjoying any of the excellent restaurants in the region. The students at ACPHS are smart, focused, and admirable people, and I am pleased to work with them on a daily basis. When I’m not working, I like spending time with my family, friends, and rescued greyhound.

I am originally from Long Island, NY, but was first hooked on helping students with the college selection process during an undergraduate admissions internship at my alma mater in Vermont. Fast forward a few years and I remain enthusiastic about helping prospective ACPHS students plan for educational and career success. I am also passionate about travel, which is a good thing, since you are likely to meet me at a college fair or high school visit in the fall or spring.
