Khadesha Bryant is the founder of Agape. Formerly, she has worked as a research assistant at the University of Rochester and Weill Cornell Medicine. After several near death experiences she decided to deviate from a career path in medicine.
Cultivating her entrepreneurial desires - drawing on her research background and incorporating her desire to better humankind - she came up with the idea for Agape. She loves technology, uses it in all aspects of her life, and wants to use it to positively influence billions of couples around the world.
Ronald Rogge, PhD is a Professor in the Department of Clinical Psychology at the University of Rochester. With more than 50 publications, he has devoted over 20 years of his life to researching relationships and the early years of marriage. One of his most notable achievements is the development of the PAIR program.
PAIR is a program that helps couples to cultivate greater mindfulness in their relationships in a manner that perfectly aligns with the principles of The Agape App. When tested in newlywed couples, the PAIR program cut the divorce rate in half over the early years of marriage. Ron is incorporating the findings from his research into the content and development of Agape. Making sure the Agape is as effective as it is fun.
