Kelvin P. Ringold joins the staff at the Virtual Center for Velo-Cardio-Facial Syndrome which,

in a way, is a homecoming. Kelvin worked as the Administrative Assistant for the International

Center for Velo-Cardio-Facial Syndrome at Upstate Medical University for 12 years where he

worked closely with many of our team members. Kelvin was also a fixture at the annual

meetings of the Velo-Cardio-Facial Syndrome Educational Foundation where he made many

friends over the years. Kelvin can best be described as positive, upbeat, motivating, and uplifting

and he has transferred those traits to both his career and personal life. He moved

to Syracuse in late 1992 after serving 20 years in the U.S. Air Force. Kelvin then worked as an

Administrative Assistant at Upstate Medical University for 16 years. The last 12 of his years at

Upstate were spent as the Administrative Assistant for Dr. Shprintzen at the International Center

for Velo-Cardio-Facial Syndrome. Kelvin’s personal traits fit his position perfectly because he

loves helping people. Kelvin has a B.S. in Business, is a certified professional photographer,  a

professional speaker and a certified professional life coach. Although both he and Dr. Shprintzen

retired from Upstate at about the same time, they have remained in close contact as both friends

and colleagues. At one of their lunches together, Dr. Shprintzen urged him to return to working

for the welfare of people with VCFS by joining the team at the Virtual Center. He agreed to

return to help provide administrative support and a smile for the registrants at The Virtual Center

for VCFS.
