Dana Fuqua

Nursing
Sophomore

I’m Dana, a sophomore Nursing major and Psychology minor, and I prefer she/her pronouns! I am a born and raised Seattleite, avid dog-lover, and attempted yogi (the effort is there--not so much the skill)! I’m really passionate about physical health and well-being, especially focused on illness prevention. One way I stay healthy is by getting all the sleep that I can, and always staying loaded up on Vitamin C! I’m also a coffee addict who loves any excuse for a good latte, so reach out to me and let’s get together for some! Contact me at: fuquad@seattleu.edu!

Jane Hunter

Communications
Senior

My name is Jane Hunter and this will be my 3rd year on the Health and Wellness Crew! I am a senior strategic communications major with a minor in psychology. I use she/hers/her for my pronouns. I am from Bellevue, WA but grew up in Colorado. Go Rockies! When I am not studying, planning events or sleeping you can find me reading books, walking around my neighborhood with my dog, having tea with friends, or debating the meaning of the latest episodes of The Flash, or Game of Thrones. One health topic I really like talking about is substance use and abuse. Particularly, tobacco and alcohol. Staying healthy can be hard in college but one way that healthy is drinking water and eating plenty of fruits and vegetables. But my most favorite way to de-stress is taking baths with lavender!
