Amanda Hellwig - Staff Associate
Amanda recently graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. degree in Human Biology, Health and Society. Just like everyone else in her major, she was pre-med until late in her college career when she realized her love of psychology and interest in caring for others’ mental health. She is using this gap year to get some work experience and to figure out her next step. Shortly, she will be attending University at Buffalo to pursue a master’s programs in general psychology with the goal of then going on to complete a Ph.D. or Psy.D. program in clinical psychology.
Amanda is grateful for the opportunity to help out at Equus Advisors where she is learning some valuable skills. When she’s not at the office, she’s probably singing in one of several groups in Ithaca. She also enjoys reading, writing, and traveling; her most memorable trips so far have been to Rome and Guatemala (where she hiked up an active volcano), and, this summer, she traveled to Ireland with her family.
