Hi, My name is Syble Billings. I am a Senior Sociology major with a minor in Human Development. I am super excited to be working with the Office of Accessibility and to meet everyone this upcoming school year. I myself have a learning disability and have used accessibility services through Geneseo to support my academic achievements. I hope that having this experience makes it easier to help guide other students in the right direction.

Hi, my name is Isabelle Hoff and I am a childhood education/ special education major with a concentration in mathematics. On campus, I am captain of the alpine ski team, I work in the school of education, and I am involved in a few clubs on campus. I have had to advocate for myself ever since I was little due to my food allergies and I would love to give back to the SUNY Geneseo community through this program. I can't wait to get to know more people and promote accessibility, inclusivity, and advocacy throughout campus.
