    “This year I had the privilege of being a Leadership in Action co-chair in charge of running the annual holiday group home social, a Christmas party for local community members living with various mental illnesses. This event is such a rewarding experience that gives you a whole new outlook on your life. After running the event, I knew I wanted to help more people like them in the future.”

    Kaitlyn said she plans to study psychology with a minor in child/developmental psychology at Canisius while participating in their clinical autism research program, with hopes of then attending graduate school to become a child neuropsychologist.
