The Iona College Campus Quad

Darcy M. Katris, Esq., '82

Darcy Katris majored in chemistry at Iona with a minor in math. She found that her professors were excellent and greatly influenced her thinking. With Jim Valvano as Iona’s basketball coach and Jeff Ruland on the team, she became a college basketball fan.

Following Iona, Darcy went to Fordham Law School and graduated cum laude. She believes the Iona Science and Math Departments prepared her for the rigors of law school. Upon graduating from law school, she began her career as an associate in a large NYC law firm. Darcy is now a partner in the NYC office of a Buffalo law firm practicing trusts and estates law.

Darcy has participated in almost all of Iona’s Meet a Career Mentor event, and she was the keynote speaker at the Iona Chemistry Department annual honors dinner a few years ago. Since her daughter is now grown, Darcy would like to increase her community service efforts through the Iona Alumni Association Board.
