Hi all! I am very excited to work with you this year as SUS’ VP Finance. Some of my goals this year would be to increase financial literacy within the Science community by hosting more workshops, bring more awareness to SUS grants and also increasing the payout rate and finally, to be more transparent with our financial processes with some podcasts. If I am not studying, I love finding new places to eat and being by or in the water (either paddle boarding or swimming!) If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at the VP Finance email and visit during our office hours!
