An assistant professor and a faculty member at the college since 2005, she brings a wide range of teaching experience to her new position, including more than a decade as a college-level instructor at Hudson Valley and service as an elementary school educator in the South Colonie School District and at Albany’s Montessori Magnet School.

The department serves more than 200 students.
