Outreach Center Advisor

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Shirley is currently a 2nd year Nursing Major. What Shirley loves about being an Outreach Center Advisor includes a bit of everything: the flexibility, creativity, planning, and collaboration all bring different scopes and degrees of curiosity. The Outreach Center was the first place where I felt connected with a community, and being able to be a part of supporting, bridging, and advocating for others to find their own are all components and factors that I find incredibly rewarding. I also love my team and the people I meet! I love collecting and making puzzles, ranging from Studio Ghibli, Disney, sceneries, animals, etc.
