Hi! My name is Renae Russell and I am currently a big bad senior majoring Sports and Exercise Science. I am from Orange County California and decided to make the long trek to Seattle because of my love for the city, rain, and coffee. Outside of school, you will find me playing soccer on the SU women’s team, reading, enjoying nature, watching Netflix, or spending time with my friends. I joined HAWC because I am interested in all aspects of human health and am excited to learn more and share my interests with others!
Hey guys! My name is Courtney Yotter and I'm a General Science
major with a minor in Psychology. I'm a Senior transfer student from Tacoma,
Washington. My dream is to go to Physician Assistant postgraduate program and
work in the medical field. In my free time, I like to be playing with my
goldendoodle, reading research journals, and doing yoga. This is my first year
on HAWC, and I'm excited to engage with students to learn about healthy
relationships, mental health, and nutrition. While the idea of wellness differs
between each individual, I think it's important to approach it holistically and
understand your own needs.
Whattup, Redhawks? While my legal name is Katarina Juarez, I tend to go by KJ. I'm a senior Psychology major from Los Alamos, New Mexico (home of the atomic bomb). This is my third year as a member of HAWC, so I guess I sort of like being a peer health educator. Aside from school, I enjoy working with children, watching terrible movies, listening to KidsBop, tweeting, drinking iced coffee, hiking, taking photographs, and being generally overwhelming. My personal goals are to watch every Disney Channel Original Movie, attend The Gathering of the Juggalos 2015, and meet Guy Fieri. In the upcoming year, I hope to spread awareness about sexual assault and sexual health in order to engage and educate students in both their own personal health and the health of their peers. To me, a proper understanding of Health and Wellness means balance among the different facets of well being. When we are in tune with ourselves physically and emotionally, we are able to maintain a solid foundation for ourselves and be the best humans that we can be.
Hey! My name is Victoria Thompson and I’m a junior at SU studying Public Affairs and Psychology. After college, I’m planning to pursue a career in public health and/or behavioral health. I grew up in Colorado but my family and I now live in the Seattle area and love it! Outside of school, I love painting, journaling, spending time with my friends, reading, and going on adventures in Seattle. As a first-year member on HAWC, I hope to build relationships and empower students at SU to take control over their personal health by being a trusted resource on health-related topics. I’m really looking forward to seeing our exciting work come into play this year through the wide variety of events we have planned for our students!
