4/02 Jeanine Miller ('90) writes "After graduation, I worked in NY for the summer and then traveled to TN to enroll at Vanderbilt University. I specialized in clinical psychology with an emphasis in social psychology. I am glad to report that I earned the MA in 1993 and the Ph.D. in 1998. I was a Patricia Roberts Harris Fellow, and a Dorothy Danforth Comption Dissertation Fellow. Currently, I direct the psychology and counseling department at American Baptist College, which is located in Nashville, TN. July will mark the end of my second year." Interestingly, Jeanine never envisioned a career in academia!

I begin my third year this week. I am currently completing my masters thesis entitled "Characterizing Longitudinal Functional and Cognitive Changes Associated with Genetic Risk Factors and Gender in Alzheimer 's Disease Pathology" which uses PET imaging to examine relevant cognitive changes in AD and healthy aged adults. I am enjoying school and a living in the Chicago area. I look forward to returning to Skidmore this spring for my five year reunion.
