Monica Moses was born and raised in Olean, NY – a small college town on the border of PA in western NY (go bonnies). She graduated from St. John Fisher College in 2018 with a dual major in statistics and economics and is now currently pursuing her PhD in economics at West Virginia University. Her interests lie within applied and behavioral economics, as well as political economy. Her research spans various policies within healthcare and education, but generally focuses on the impact of health and education markets on overall well-being. Her hope is that policy can help strengthen the basic tenets of well-being through which individuals, households, and entire societies experience prosperity on a day-to-day basis, serving and meeting the needs of all communities in unique and innovative ways.
Fun fact – Monica is the eldest of 5 children and was the first in her family to earn a college degree (proudly followed by her brother and sister, and soon to be youngest brother and sister).
