Jenessa N. Holder


Jenessa N. Holder is a Ph.D. candidate at SUNY Downstate.


She became interested in Psychology partly because of a psychology class in high school and partly from a book her mom gave her.


Her curiosity continued into undergrad where she studied episodic memory. Now as a Ph.D. candidate, she wants to learn more about cognition and its impact on behavior.

Jenessa is passionate about mentoring others and passing on as much advice and knowledge as she can.

Outside of science, she loves traveling the world and exploring new places.

Words she lives by: The journey is the destination. Love the journey!
