Living in Tompkins County

photo of Jennifer

“Living in Tompkins County is a fulfilling and wonderful experience. The City of Ithaca and the surrounding area is thriving with locally owned businesses, restaurants, and shops, and all of the festivals, activities, and events that occur throughout the year. Our community is composed of volunteers, educators, and philanthropists who are passionate about the arts, health, diversity, sustainability, and community engagement. Tompkins County is not only a great place to live and work, but it’s a great place to get involved and give back to the community.” 
Jennifer Best
Grant and Leadership Program Coordinator at College of Veterinary Medicine, Cornell University
