Dr. Kathy Platoni '74

"After HWS, I went on to earn my Pys.D. from the School of Professional Psychology at Nova University and I have been a practicing clinical psychologist for 27 years. I hold the rank of Colonel in the 307th Medical Group based in Blacklick, Ohio, and I was recently appointed as Army Reserve Clinical Psychology Consultant to the Chief, Medical Service Corp. The education I received at William Smith College taught me to commit myself to a higher purpose. Life is about finding something you can give of yourself, finding something to do for humanity."
