Albina started as a program assistant for the L4L program in 2015 and worked her way up to program director in 2018. As an LMSW, she worked in a mental health clinic and enjoyed working with all populations but had a special interest in youth development. This role allows her to continue working with today’s youth and assisting with career exploration and development. Her motto is “Intern with Impact” and she is of the belief that one of the biggest advantages of the program is that it allows one to step out and possibly explore other industries. When she is not working, you can find her watching mind numbing TV.

Terri Prezio has been working in the non for profit world for about 5 years. After decades of selling products and services in Manhattan, Terri felt it was time to move on from the “corporate” world, and spend time giving back to people. Terri has worked successfully for four seasons now with the Ladders for Leaders team. She has been able to bring many of her contacts from her corporate world into our Ladders portfolio. Corporate development is her specialty! When Terri isn’t working, you can find her home safe with her lovely husband Tom, sweet 16 year old son, Michael, and her precious dog Bella. Terri loves reading, specifically Historical Fiction.
