President Anthony Greene, PhD

Dr. Greene, a psychologist at the UF’s Counseling & Wellness Center, is very keen on balance with intensity; he strives to work really hard, play really hard, and rest with enthusiasm. His day begins with seeking a place of inner peace through spiritual solitude, and he tries to maintain that place throughout the day regardless of what else occurs. He also enjoys oil painting for his more aesthetic creative needs and is very active in his place of worship.
