Jacky Cheruiyot: firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Jacklyne Cheruiyot, GSA representative for Humanities. I am a first year MA student in the Department of Women and Gender Studies.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you in this capacity. I hope to work with you to address all the challenges we face.
I look forward to a harmonious fruitful year with each one of you. Without you, no GSA.
Leanna Santangelo: email@example.com
Hello! My name is Leanna, and I am in my final year of the Masters of Counselling Program. I have lived in Lethbridge my entire life, completing my BA in Psychology here at the University of Lethbridge. I have been involved in a variety of community organizations, as I have a passion to be a part of something bigger in order to make a difference, and give back to the individuals within these organizations and our surrounding community.
My involvement within the GSA would complement my desire to make a difference within the graduate student experience, allowing them to not only feel connected as a community, but to feel heard and represented as a student body. I am excited and honoured to be a part of your graduate student experience, and look forward to helping make this experience a positive one!
Kelsey Berg: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello! My name is Kelsey Berg, I am a PhD student in population studies in health and the Health Sciences GSA representative.
My research focuses on policy solutions to address income as a determinant of health. In a broader sense, my interests include equity, research methodology, and contemplating the fate of the universe.
I currently represent the GSA on a Student Awards Strategy Task Force, the Alcohol and Drug Awareness committee, and contribute to the Meeting of the Minds planning team. I also co-facilitate a graduate interdisciplinary research journal club on campus.
Feel free to reach out with any ideas, questions or just to chat. I’m always happy to discuss research or other grad student projects. Take care!
Araba Sagoe: email@example.com
Hello! My name is Araba Sagoe. I am currently finishing up my first year in Master of Biological Sciences. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Biology here at the University of Lethbridge, and as an international student myself, I have had a lot of experiences over the last couple of years. As the international representative for the next year, I hope to meet some needs of the international students and help answer questions you are itching to ask outside of academia (or anything I can help with really), as well as foster a great multi-cultural experience for you.
I look forward to meeting you.
Rachel Dombowsky: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello all! I am M.Sc. student in the Neuroscience department studying the development of rodent vocalizations. I plan on completing my M.Sc. and start my PhD this summer. I completed my B.Sc. in Neuroscience here at University of Lethbridge. During my time here I have worked in many research labs in the neuroscience and physics department and spend my free time volunteering with Let's Talk Science.
I am dedicated to my research and community and will continue to bring this aspect to the 2018/19 GSA council. It is absolutely my pleasure and honour to continue to advocate for my fellow graduate students.
Chloe Crosschild: email@example.com
My name is Iitaapii'tsankiiaki, Chloe Crosschild. I am Blackfoot, more specifically, from the Blood Tribe. I graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 2014 with a Bachelor of Nursing Degree and began working as a Public Health Nurse in Southwestern Alberta. I also work casually at the Kainai Continuing Care Facility and started teaching the Community Health Clinical Practice Rotation in 2016.
I am currently enrolled in the Master of Nursing program. My interests include: Indigenous Health, maternal/child health, health promotion/disease prevention/health protection. I am also very passionate about social justice within the health care system for Indigenous families and bridging gaps between traditional health practices and current standards of practice/policies to create better relationships.
I am excited to be a part of the GSA Council this year and hope I can contribute and create a voice for the Indigenous community on campus :)
Samantha Krause: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi there! My name is Sam and I am a MSc student studying animal communication behaviour in the Psychology department. I spent two months this spring tracking Adelaide's warblers (i.e. itsy bitsy yellow birds) around a wildlife refuge in Puerto Rico. Catch me in the halls sometime and I'll tell you all about it! Or if you have any bird-related questions, I can answer those too.
I am new to Lethbridge as of last fall and have enjoyed exploring Southern Alberta and meeting some pretty awesome people. This is a beautiful campus and great community. I was impressed by the involvement and dedication of the GSA council last year, so much so, I asked if I could be a part of this positive team of people for 2018/19. Luckily, there was a spot for me, and look forward to contributing to GSA initiatives and supporting our grad students here at U of L.
