After securing her M.S. degree, Latonia served as a Resident Director for SUNY Cobleskill, but returned to the University at Albany a year later to give back to a program that she believes is the foundation of her success. She served as an Academic Advisor for the Educational Opportunity Program for over seven years.

While serving in her Academic Advisor role for EOP, Latonia secured a Certificate of Advanced Study and certification as a School Business Administrator. Her financial background led her to serve as Delegate and Treasurer for the Albany Chapter of United University Professions for seven years. She established her fiscal presence at the University as the Financial Officer for the Office of International Education where she served in that position for six years. With her diverse knowledge of the University and its inner financial workings, Latonia recently took on the role of Director of the Office of Student Accounts.
