Hi! I have been a part of the board since my freshman year and am loving working with this group of people to better OSU’s community and bring awareness about Student Health Services and all it has to offer!

Hey! I am a fourth-year chemistry major double minoring in biology and French. My priority in serving on this board is to promote the awareness of SHS to the OSU student community. I am also a member of the ASOSU House of Representatives and take these leadership roles very seriously. I am always grateful to listen to the concerns and opinions of our community and welcome feedback and suggestions. I love soccer, skiing, and my dog Crumby!

I am a senior majoring in biohealth sciences and public health. I joined SHAB because I wanted to help bridge the gap between staff members and students by improving knowledge of what services are provided and covered under student fees. I have a cat and love Hawaiian food!

Hello! I am currently a second year pharmacy student. I  have been on the OSU campus for the past six years, go Beavs!
