Community Health Coordinator

Introducing Cat! She received her B.S. in Wellness Management from SUNY Oswego. (Yes, it’s really cold there.) Cat loved her time there and spent equal effort learning about the public health field, and managing how to live successfully in a frozen tundra. She is currently working on her MPH at the American Public University System

Hobbies? I try to be as active as I can, and I am happiest outside exploring nature. I love hiking, biking, and kayaking, and as a newbie to Long Island, I am having a great time checking out all of the trails and parks. My favorites so far are Caumsett State Park and Shelter Island!

Best part of working here so far? Everyone loves food and eating as much as I do. My Long Island restaurant bucket list grows every day!

Best way to get your steps in? Walking around Target.

And the worst way? Walking around Target on payday.

Dinner with one person? Michelle Obama. I would love to hear her insight on everything from politics and social justice, to fashion and being an overall boss lady. I wouldn’t be mad if Barack came with her.
