Bost-Utsey holds a bachelor's degree in organizational management from Mercy College. She has spent much of her career to date in human resources at financial institutions, including Hudson Valley Bank in Tuckahoe. 

Originally from the Bronx, she is now a resident of Croton-on-Hudson. 

“I am thrilled to work for such an energetic, welcoming organization,” Bost-Utsey said. 

She added that she is looking working forward to working cohesively with all departments and prides herself on embracing technology to update and streamline the Human Resources department. 

“We are fortunate to have Toya Bost-Utsey join our senior management team and to fill an essential role at HVCS,” said Andrea Straus, executive director. “Her predecessor had been with us for 16 years, so it was no small accomplishment to learn the workings of our organization in a very short period of time right when we transitioned to a new health insurance plan, our first switch in decades. I know she will also easily handle multiple personnel, staff training, and policy issues.” 

HVCS touches the lives of more than 5,700 of the neediest residents annually through offices in Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester counties.
