Allyson Regis

Allyson Regis, PhD
Wellbeing Center Coordinator
Pronouns: She/Her

I'm originally from Queens, New York, and am a recent transplant to Connecticut! I'm a Licensed Psychologist, professor, book author, career coach, and public speaker. I love higher education and have worked in several universities across the Northeast. I began my pursuit of higher education at Stony Brook University where I earned a B.A. with a double major in Psychology and Sociology, and a minor in Business Management. I then went on to earn both my master's degree in Mental Health Counseling and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Fordham University, I love working with students and especially enjoy helping first-generation college students who have difficulty navigating the college environment. My favorite self-care activities are writing, singing, and attempting to paint. (I may not be good at it, but I enjoy it!)

Erin Duff, MPH
Wellbeing Specialist
Pronouns: She/Her

I have been at Southern for 11 years now where I started as an undergraduate student, and then I received my MPH. Before starting in the Wellbeing Center, I worked on campus as a Hall Director and also as the COVID Coordinator throughout the pandemic. A few of my favorite self-care activities include the gym, binge-watching a good TV series, and spending time with friends and family.

Jacyntha Adouko, BHSC
Graduate Intern
Program: Master of Business Administration (MBA), Healthcare Administration concentration
Pronouns: She/Her

Ever since I earned my bachelor's degree in Health Sciences with a minor in Women's and Gender Studies from Southern in May 2023, I've set my sights on becoming a Healthcare Administrator. My goal is to specialize in addressing and dismantling biases that add to the disproportionately high mortality rates among Black women during childbirth and hospital experiences. My favorite self-care activities are going to the gym, cooking, dancing, and praying.

Victoria Ibitoye

Victoria Ibitoye, BS
Graduate Intern
Program: MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling
Pronouns: She/Her

I was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island! I graduated from American International College with my bachelor's in psychology and a minor in criminal justice! When it comes to what I want to do with my master's degree, the options are limitless. My biggest focus and desire is to bridge the gap between faith and the topic of mental health. I want to be a part of dismantling the stigma around being a person who upholds a religious faith yet desires to seek mental health. One day, I hope to expand my expertise in various ways that are not limited to just individual therapy. My favorite things to do are anything that helps me grow in my faith as a Christian believer, spending quality time alone or with friends, exercising, indulging in intentional self-care, and trying different food places anywhere!

Shane Lister

Shane Lister, BSPH
Graduate Intern
Program: Master’s Degree in Public Health
Pronouns: He/His

I completed my undergraduate degree here at Southern and received my BSPH with a wellness minor! I chose to further my education because I want to make a powerful and lasting impact on communities in Connecticut. I want to spark change and engage in challenging and sometimes difficult conversations, all while ensuring I am fully equipped with the knowledge surrounding a multitude of topics. Some of my favorite things to do for self-care include taking naps, getting a good workout in, snacking, or spending time with my friends and family!
