Marcy joined Albany Podiatry in 2013 as a medical assistant when making a career change from the world of education. “I enjoy helping others, but my passion in life has always been to do so in the medical field.” Marcy enrolled in a certified medical assistant program and graduated with honors, receiving her associate’s degree in applied science. She loves to laugh and offers patients a sense of comfort during their office visits. A self-professed ‘girlie girl,’ Marcy can’t get by without Dr.’s Remedy nail polish, which contains tea tree oil, vitamins, and wheat protein – rather than the formaldehyde and toluene found in most polishes. In her free time, you can find Marcy camping and hiking at Rock Pond or boating and fishing at Putnam Pond.

If you’ve been to our office in the past several years, there’s a good chance you’ve met Olivia. Prior to becoming a medical assistant, Olivia worked as an EKG technician and registered patients in an emergency room. Upon learning of a job opening, she took a chance: “I didn’t know feet were my thing!” After ten years at Albany Podiatry, we’d say so! We’re lucky enough to have had her on our team since 2003. Olivia appreciates the variety that each day offers, and loves learning about cutting-edge techniques. In the summer of 2014, we launched KeryFlex, a nail restoration system for damaged, cracked, and fungal nails. Olivia quickly mastered the extensive training and has become our head technician. KeryFlex has since become her favorite product, after she saw the joy it brings to patients by completely restoring their nails in minutes! In her free time, Olivia enjoys riding bikes, camping, and doing community volunteer work.
