Gray joined the Winthrop community in September 2005 as the first TRiO program director. Each day, she works with a superb group of TRiO professionals and a very lively, motivated group of students.
After completing her undergraduate work at the State University of New York at Buffalo, she earned an M.S. in criminal lustice from Northeastern University and an M.A. in counselor education from the University of South Florida. She stayed at USF and worked in the Counseling Center as a counselor for two years prior to relocating back to my home state of New York, where she began her TRiO career. In New York, she worked at Cazenovia College as the associate director of a TRiO-SSS program. Her 10-plus years of TRiO experience prepared her well for building Winthrop’s new TRiO program and designing services that will help participants excel.
When not at Winthrop, Gray balances her time with family with other interests, such as traveling, Families with Children from China activities, driving her daughter Lily to soccer, and being a troop leader to Lily's Girl Scout troop.
Gray said she "absolutely loves being a part of the TRiO family. I am very passionate about TRiO and providing students with opportunities for success."
