Jenny McCosby

Jenny McCosby graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill studying Psychology and Global Studies, while minoring in Social and Economic Justice. She spent a semester abroad in Spain, where, as an intern, she assisted in the creation of the first comprehensive review of the field of Global Mental Health. At school, McCosby served as the president of her sorority, an operational assistant for the Marching Tar Heels, a committee member for the UNC Dance Marathon, a research assistant, and an after school volunteer for a local elementary school. McCosby is currently exploring ways to merge her interests of psychology, culture, and human rights into one cohesive career path.

At RespectAbility, McCosby was working on Research and Message Development in order to start changing the perceptions and stereotypes associated with people with disabilities.
