Meet the 2012-2013 board:
Director of Advocacy and Outreach
Program: Graduate School of Social Work, MSW, 2014
Hometown: Buenos Aires, Argentina but grew up in Auckland, New Zealand
Why you chose to get involved with the GSA: It looked like an incredible opportunity to become part of the BC community in a meaningful way. I have a varied background that includes living overseas, working in student government for most of my undergrad career and doing a large amount of volunteering. I am passionate about advocacy and empowerment and hope to bring a different perspective to the office.
A goal for the year: To listen to the graduate community and provide a positive long term impact on the graduate experience at BC.
Director of Programming
Program: Graduate School of Social Work, MSW, 2013
Director of Finances
Program: Carroll School of Management/Law School, MBA/ JD, 2013
Hometown: Grew up in Las Vegas, NV, was born in Reno, NV
Why you chose to get involved with the GSA: I studied at five other universities before coming to BC. Yet my experiences here have left me with a sense of loyalty and pride that I never really developed at those previous institutions. Partly out of gratitude, I joined the GSA so that I could become more involved in a support and leadership capacity at BC. Not only do I hope to give back to a University that has given so much to me, but I also really look forward to being a part of a truly great institution and ensuring that other graduates students have as wonderful an experience here as I have had over the past couple years.
A goal for the year: Implementing a new record-keeping system to enhance the transparency, efficiency and fairness of the GSA's grant and reimbursement processes.
