FISCAL Co-chair

Hi! I'm currently a third year majoring in Business Management Economics with an emphasis in marketing. I am a boba addict, koalas are my favorite animal, and I want to travel the world as much as possible! This is my first quarter with SEC and I've been loving it so much! I've met so many people, learned valuable life skills, and grown more as a person. It's so inspiring to see how much work this organization does every week and I really love seeing everyone put their plans into action. I hope that in the future, I am able to work with a company and convince them to become more green and environmentally friendly. 


 Can you believe I went hiking in the snow.

Hello! I am a second year Environmental Studies and Legal Studies double major with a strong passion for the environment and social justice. This is my second quarter with the SEC, my first as co-chair! I can't wait to continue the hard work we do in an effort to UCSC more sustainable! I enjoy doing black and white film photography, which I hope to incorporate into my media work with the SEC. During my free time I love to bake, explore the outdoors, watch Rick and Morty, eat food, and hang out with friends. I look forward to working more with the wonderful, dedicated students involved.

Hey Ya'll! I am a second year with a proposed Psychology major. I am currently working as SEC's Personnel Co-Chair, which has been amazing because it comprises of everything I love to do. I am very passionate about helping people and being able to support those who need it because without the support of many others I would not be where I am today.

Waste Prevention Coordinator

I am currently the Waste Prevention Coordinator for the Student Environmental Center. I hope to bring my experience as a student leader from the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE), and student government to collaborate with organizations on campus and work towards the university’s goal of zero waste by 2020. I also hope to encourage people to acknowledge and understand the waste that they produce in their everyday lives goes and further comprehend the complex systems that each product undergoes to decompose or be put back into the system. In my free time, I enjoy reading, adventuring outdoors, and cooking.
