I have lived in Albany since 2004 and have been with the College since 2014. At ACPHS, I have had the pleasure of assisting students as they invest in their education and grow into successful health professionals.

Whether it is discussing financial aid applications, aid eligibility or finding new activities to experience in the Capital Region, I enjoy the opportunity to help students navigate through this exciting time!

I was born and raised in Schenectady, NY and am very familiar with the Capital Region. ACPHS is a great place to be a part of an active student and staff community, as well as learn and grow into a strong professional. 

As an Assistant Director of Financial Aid, my responsibilities include guiding families through the financial aid process as a new or continuing student. I enjoy working hard to make the transition into college and the world of financial aid an easy one.

I love the Capital Region so much that I moved to Albany after I began working at the College in 2018. ACPHS has a great community of dedicated professionals and students that makes for a welcoming environment full of opportunities.

I enjoy assisting students and their families as they embark and continue on their collegiate journeys.

I have had the pleasure of working at the College since 2005. During this time, I’ve guided hundreds of students through the financial aid process and watched them succeed beyond their years at ACPHS.

I am particularly proud of the employment opportunities our students realize after graduation. Our students' success is reflected in our <1% federal student loan default rate. While on campus, our robust student employment program provides students the opportunity to get involved within our Albany and Colchester communities. By tutoring children in math and reading, our students are brightening the future for younger generations.

Originally from upstate NY, I headed east for college and have found my way back to the Capital Region! I started working in a financial aid office as a student worker in college, and once I graduated, I realized how much I enjoyed working in higher education and helping families navigate through financial aid.

I am here to help students and families better understand financial aid and alternative financing options to make the dream of higher education a reality, or even just to provide suggestions on some great restaurants in the Capital Region to my fellow foodies!
