Georgia Arvanitis, Ph.D, Volunteer Program Leader

Long-time cat lover and EveryCat supporter, Dr. Arvanitis contributes to EveryCat Health Foundation by spearheading the Volunteer Program as the “Cat Herder-in-Chief.” Her charge is to engage and support volunteers passionate about EveryCat’s commitment to feline health research and education.

Dr Arvanitis provides training, talent development and enhancement of individual volunteer skills. In addition, she helps develop collaborations with a variety of groups, including professional organizations, educational institutions, community associations and other cat-centric groups. Her goal is to match volunteers with the right project area so they thrive and inspire dedication to feline health and research.

Dr. Arvanitis received her Ph.D. in chemistry from Princeton University and her post-doctoral work included a visiting assistant professorship at Rutgers University Center for Molecular Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry, where she studied DNA-drug interactions. She served as Professor and later Chair of Chemistry at The College of New Jersey, where she directed a research group that focused on antimicrobial and anti-tumor drugs for two decades.

Dr. Arvanitis has long been enthusiastic about cats, and especially feline health. She served on her local township’s Animal Advocate Committee, and was instrumental in bringing about the first Trap-Neuter-Return resolution in central NJ. She shares her New Jersey home with a trio of rescue felines, doted on by her and her husband, Dr. Michael Berardini, also a fellow cat lover.
