Our Team

LaVerne Pratt

Administrative Assistant

Responsibilities: I am the Administrative Assistant to the Graduate Admissions team and the Career Services Director.

Why Bank Street: I have been working at Bank Street since 1997 — starting in the Registrar’s office and currently in the Graduate Admissions office. The feeling of community here makes everyone who walks through our doors feel welcomed. Since I work in the Graduate Admissions office, I get to see the students come full circle from the beginning of their programs through graduation. It’s nice to know that our graduates are working in schools, museums and hospitals doing great things and making a difference in children’s lives.

Favorite Local Spot: Pio Pio on 93rd and Amsterdam. They have delicious Peruvian food and a nice atmosphere.

Experience: 14 years of administrative experience in Public Relations and over 20 years of administrative experience in Higher Education.
