My name is Brian Wallenhorst and I am the Assistant Director of Admissions. I began my career in higher education at SUNY Morrisville in 2012.
In 2009, I graduated from SUNY Delhi with a Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management. While at Delhi, I was very involved in student life because I wanted to gain additional experiences outside of the classroom. I tell you this, because I truly believe being involved during your college education is a great opportunity to meet new student and expand your horizons.
After graduating with my bachelor’s degree, I began working in the hospitality industry. As I progressed within the hospitality industry for nearly four years, I began to miss being a part of a college campus and interacting with the students, faculty and staff. I realized I have a strong desire and passion to assist students in the process of planning their future and attending college. My purpose and motivation every day is to help students reach their goals and fulfill their ambitions. In the summer of 2018, I graduated with my Master’s degree in Higher Education Administration to affirm my personal aspirations. I am very excited to be working at SUNY Morrisville and look forward to helping students through their next steps.
In my free time, I enjoy golfing, watching movies, camping, spending time with family and friends and anything Disney!

I am from Clifton Park, NY and earned my Bachelor Degree in Visual Communications from Cazenovia College.
I visit students from the Northeastern region of New York. One of the many hats I wear in the Admissions Office is managing our Tour Guide program. This area of my job is very rewarding because I have the opportunity to know the students on a personal level. I assist them in finding internships and jobs and learn more about their specific majors through their adventures in class. I have watched many students grow professionally, graduate, and jump into their careers. I am always proud to watch the students who work in our office walk across the stage during graduation.
SUNY Morrisville is a hidden gem in the middle of the state where you can find students delivering foals, making cheese curd and ice cream, growing lettuce through aquaponics, rebuilding transmissions, and creating new computer games. Many more of these adventures are offered through the diverse programs offered at SUNY Morrisville.
I enjoy being outdoors, golfing, hiking, gardening, camping. I love spending time with my husband and two boys.

Hello! My name is Nolan Garris and I am originally from Syracuse, N.Y. I am excited to be a part of the admissions team at SUNY Morrisville as an Admissions Assistant.
I graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in 2017 with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and a minor in Environmental Studies. Following graduation, I was uncertain of my career path. After much thought, I realized that higher education and the opportunities it offers is what interests me as a career. Specifically, working with young adults is energizing and helping them reach their goals is rewarding.
When I’m not in the office or on the road, I enjoy skiing, hiking, lacrosse, playing Frisbee, cooking, and spending quality time with my pets.
Devyn B. Thomas, Transfer Coordinator
Born and raised in the trees of the Hudson Valley, I transferred to the rolling hills of SUNY Morrisville where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. As a transfer student, I was welcomed with open arms from the faculty and staff and my peers.
While completing my degree, I was fortunate to take on an internship in the Office of Career Services where I gained essential experience working with SUNY Morrisville students, faculty, staff, and the general public. It is because of my positive experience as a student and an intern that I am back here again today. I am beyond thrilled and very proud to be a part of Morrisville’s Admissions team, and I am even more excited to work with prospective students in achieving their dreams of becoming a college graduate.
I am extremely passionate about the College and guiding others in accomplishing their goals. Morrisville’s diverse atmosphere, hands-on learning environment, and real-world applications allow students to grow as an individual, perform at their absolute best, and prepare for their future. My story is an example of this and I am happy to share it with anyone and everyone!
I like to consider myself as a spontaneous adventurer. So, when I am not in the office, I am out learning the world through travel, hiking, yoga, photography, and various D.I.Y. projects. I very much enjoy the company of my life partner and husband, Ben, my energetic, whimsical furry friend, Eve, and my loving family.

I was also a Resident Assistant and worked a few college office jobs as a student worker. I began working with SUNY Morrisville professionally in 2016, as a regional Admissions Counselor for New York City.

Jeffrey N. Dewan, Admissions Assistant
I am from Cazenovia, a short trip down Route 20 from Morrisville, where I grew up riding bikes and swimming in the lake. Upon graduating high school, I enrolled at SUNY Cortland not exactly knowing which area I would like to study.
My sophomore year I got involved with Residential Life and Housing serving as a Resident Assistant in one of the first-year student halls. It was at this moment that a career in Higher Education started calling my name. I enjoyed working with students and making sure that they were enjoying their time at college while also preparing to succeed after they graduate. My senior year I was lucky enough to have an internship in the Office of Admissions and the rest, as they say, is history.
I graduated from SUNY Cortland in 2017 and I am very grateful for this position with SUNY Morrisville. My favorite part of the Admissions Assistant role is the opportunity to work with prospective students and give them the chance to maximize their potential.
In my free time I enjoy golfing, hiking, going to the movies and playing with my dog Ruby.
