Billy Biferie

Accessibility Specialist

Billy has done a little bit of everything -- from waiting tables, digging ditches and selling auto parts, to coordinating volunteers and teaching high school. After graduating from the University of Florida in 2009 with a degree in English and classical studies, he took on odd jobs until joining Americorps NCCC. Since completing his year of national service, Billy has pursued his master of arts degree in English literature at Stetson University. He enjoys long walks on the beach, finely crafted anecdotes and pretending he is a space explorer.


Anne Moore

Success Specialist

Anne received her undergraduate degree from Stetson University in 2012, double majoring in religious studies and political science. She is now enrolled in the graduate program for clinical mental health counseling. Anne is an avid health enthusiast, and when she isn't working, you can probably find her teaching a yoga class or doing personal training. Besides work, Anne loves hiking, gardening and drinking Kombucha tea in all its fine array of flavors.


Alexis Trybinski

Athletic Academic Specialist

Alexis graduated from Stetson University in spring 2014 with a bachelor's degree in psychology and is currently pursuing her master's degree in clinical mental health counseling. At the Academic Success Center, Alexis combines her knowledge of the athlete's psyche with her psychology background to inspire student athletes to overcome mental and physical obstacles and reach their fullest potential. As a current member and captain of the women's soccer team, Alexis tries to carry her love of competition, collaboration and success to everyone with whom she interacts. A fun fact about Alexis is that when she isn't playing soccer and working with student-athletes, she's usually at home organizing and cleaning to support her problematic obsessive compulsive tendencies.
