Research Manager

Kasey has had a life-long love of television and media and knew she wanted to make a career of it even when everyone said she should be a teacher. It turns out that everyone was right. Kasey is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology at The City University of New York (CUNY) and is investigating how students learn through technology.

Kasey has experience in many forms of media. She started out working on the production side of animation as a post-production and production coordinator. After seeing how her young cousins responded to her work, she turned her attention towards research.

Kasey has worked as a researcher and research analyst for several shows, including Nick Jr.’s Bubble Guppies. She has also worked as a consultant for interactive museum exhibits including The Human Body at the Museum of Science and Industry and the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Kasey received her Master’s in Developmental Psychology from CUNY and holds Bachelor’s degrees in Elementary Education and Telecommunications from Indiana University. She is also an adjunct lecturer at College of Staten Island, CUNY and has been an integral part of developing the hybrid course curriculum for Introductory Psychology.

Kasey resides in Queens, New York with her husband and two sons.
