Jennifer Creary '93

What did you do after graduating AIS?


I went to Syracuse University and majored in Business with a focus in Emerging Enterprises and Entrepreneurship. I'm still amazed that I made it through four winters there!

What are you doing now?

After graduating, I came back to the area to work with my dad at the computer company he started 30 years ago. In the past few years, I have taken over the computer component of the company as we have now gotten into importing packaging machinery from China. Other than work, I love to travel.

What did you do after graduating AIS?

After graduating from AIS, I attended the University of Pennsylvania where I studied Biology, Art and Architecture. After completing my medical education at Jefferson Medical College, I interned at the Bryn Mawr Hospital and worked as an Emergency Room physician near home and as a Primary Care doctor for the Indian Health Service in Coulee Dam Washington, Barrow Alaska, and Philadelphia Mississippi. I completed my Residency in Ophthalmology at Emory University in Atlanta, where I also did my fellowship in the then new field of Intraocular Lenses and Ophthalmic Lasers. However, I missed the Northeast and returned North to found the premier solo Cataract Surgery practice in Boston in 1983. As part of the new field of intraocular lenses, I was the first woman in the world to put a silicone lens into the human eye.

Maxine Zhang Schaefer '01

What did you do after graduating AIS?

I experienced culture-shock at Brown. Truly, the first year was an adjustment, AIS provided a lot of structure and Brown seemed like a free-for-all in comparison. But I eventually settled in and had a fantastic experience in Providence.

What is your favorite memory of AIS?

My SSP trip to France, and something happened on this trip that directly influenced what I do now. I have a vivid memory of my host family opening a special bottle of Saint-Émilion my last evening with them.
