Leanna Santangelo: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
Florian Dieker: email@example.com
Hey! My name is Florian Dieker and I'm a Ph.D. student in Potato Science. I've started my studies at the U of L in January so I'm fairly new to the city even though I've been working in Southern Alberta in 2010 and partially from 2013 to 2015. My home is Germany where I've completed my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Crop Science some years ago. Between my M.Sc. and Ph.D. I traveled parts of North and South America as well as Africa for three years to get to know crop production systems around the world and to understand the food production by commercial and small-scale farmers.
I'm joining the GSA because I'm standing behind the goal to improve the student's life on campus and to represent their needs. Also, bringing people together from all over the country and far beyond Canadian borders is a great opportunity to meet new people and to have insights in different cultures.
It is my pleasure to represent the graduate students and I'll do my best to get your voice out there.
Araba Sagoe: firstname.lastname@example.org
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: email@example.com
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 2017/18 GSA council. It is absolutely my pleasure and honour to continue to advocate for my fellow graduate students.
Chloe Crosschild: firstname.lastname@example.org
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: email@example.com
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.
