Friday Knight Alumni Spotlight Q&A

Tell us about yourself. Where you live now, career, and/or family news. What have you been up to since you left Geneseo?
I live in Macedon, NY with my husband, we just bought our first place last year! I currently work as a medical case reviewer for Medicare. My husband and I are starting our own business in 2021!! Our business mission will center around being able to improve quality of life, mental health symptoms, and the overall well-being of society through diligent behavioral and socialization research into the efficacy of breed specific cats as therapy animals. My studies at Geneseo in psychology focusing on research, along with my personal life experiences with mental illness, will hopefully serve as a good foundation to have our business mission taken seriously and ultimately make a positive impact on the community at large. I most definitely attribute my motivations and dedication to making a difference in society to the years I spent at Geneseo!
