1. What are your goals as Director of Community Relations?

My role in ASUW allows me to collaborate with students from all over campus. I’m really fortunate that I get to help other student leaders put on effective programming and critically think about how they can advocate for their constituents. Within my term, I hope to have a joint-programming event across all living communities and I hope to encourage participation in Student Senate from underrepresented communities.

2. In what ways has the HUB contributed to your Husky Experience?

When I am at the HUB, I am meeting with friends to discuss what we can do as student leaders on behalf of our constituents to make the campus a better place. As I am finishing my last term serving on Panhellenic, the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life has become a second home to me. Serving as this year’s Director of Community Relations, I am also thrilled be apart of ASUW’s space, where I can continue to drive change on campus!

3. If you had to eat a single food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I’m a huge burger fan. I have a weird obsession with burgers. Any type, too. So, if I could just have a different type of burger for every meal of the rest of my life, that could be fun! But, if I had to narrow it down, I’d probably stick to a classic bacon cheeseburger!

4. What is your dream job?

I have a passion for health. As a Medical Anthropology and Global Health major, I love learning about people’s ways of living and am constantly intrigued by how different parts of the world perceive and prioritize healthcare. I would love a job where I could work within the healthcare realm and apply the leadership skills that I have developed at UW!

5. Do you have any Husky Game Day traditions? If so, what?

I go to all of the Husky games with girls from my chapter! For me, Dawg Saturdays and basketball games are times when I can celebrate the school with some of my best friends!
