Ivey has been a member of our Dress for Success Albany Professional Women’s Group for five years. In 2015 she was selected as our delegate to attend the annual Dress for Success Worldwide Success Summit, which is a three day leadership conference that hosts selected delegates from more than 60 Dress for Success affiliates throughout the United States. Afterwards she participated in project management training and career mentorship program as she organized and implemented her own Community Action Project (CAP) as part of the duties of a Success Summit delegate. Ivey’s project, “A Refined Ivey Vine” was a workshop series that focused on making smart choices, peer pressure, and etiquette skills, for middle school-aged girls in Troy. The final meeting was a dinner out a nice restaurant where the girls could practice their new etiquette skills.
Having worked as a dental assistant for the past five years (both oral dentistry and pediatric), Ivey decided to pursue a new career path and enrolled full-time at Hudson Valley Community College this past fall. Ivey continues to work full-time as a pediatric dental assistant and is raising two wonderful daughters while she completes her new degree in the field of Human Services. We are pleased to share, and applaud, Ivey for making the President’s List for the fall semester and look forward to following and supporting her in her academic and professional pursuits!
