Diane Karagienakos, '86 BSBA - Marketing, earned a master of arts degree with distinction in anthrozoölogy, the multidisciplinary study of human-animal relations, from England's University of Exeter in 2019. She recently led an online discussion, "Animals under a Human Pandemic: The Effects of COVID-19," at that university. She is seeking opportunities that draw upon my her experience in marketing, background in film, and education in/passion for animal rights and the natural world to design and implement strategies for organizations to become more responsible global citizens. She volunteers as an animal assisted therapy team with her pup, Picard, visiting a variety of vulnerable populations, such as people in hospice, psychiatric wards, and subacute wards, as well as community centers and children's literacy programs. Recently, she has combined her certifications as a human-animal intervention specialist and pet loss grief recovery specialist and, along with Picard, formed a companion animal loss meeting in Sacramento, California, for people who have suffered the loss of a companion animal, either recent or in the past. Vegan Greek cooking is her hobby. She lives in San Francisco.
