“While St. John’s prepared me academically for my work in art therapy, I think it also provided an environment that promoted compassion and empathy for people in all walks of life,” said Mrs. Cioffi. “The diversity on campus and focus on social justice issues in coursework helped to highlight the gaps that often exist in society and enabled me to approach situations in my job with a different lens to better help people during some of the worst moments of their lives.”
