Hey everyone! I am a third-year double majoring in Psychology and Women's Studies with a minor in Philosophy. Outside of the Student Ambassadors program, I am on the executive board for Gamma Rho Lambda, an LGBTQ sorority here at Ohio State, as well as an assistant for a visually impaired individual. I spend a lot of my free time exploring Columbus with friends and having brunch with my family. I look forward to meeting all of you this year!

Hey everyone! I am a fourth-year Psychology student with a minor in Non-Profit Studies originally from Cleveland, Ohio. I am currently contemplating what I want to do with the next phase of my life, but I am definitely interested in working in the Non-Profit sector or in Higher Education. I’m not so sure if I’m ready to leave OSU- I love it too much! In my spare time I like to hang out with friends, explore Columbus, and of course, binge watch Netflix shows. I’m in the process of making a self-esteem workshop for young girls in the City of Columbus. I really enjoy ensuring that everyone knows their worth and has an equal opportunity to succeed. I’m looking forward to programming the events for this upcoming year and making sure you learn all the amazing things happening in the Psych Department and OSU! I hope to see you throughout the year!

Hi there! My name is Kate and I am a third-year student triple majoring in Psychology, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Sexuality Studies. I hope to go to graduate school for counseling, with an emphasis in sexuality studies. I spent my childhood in Rhode Island, spent my teenage years in the Dallas, Texas area, and now I am loving my time here as a student in Columbus! I have a passion for travel; in fact in May, 2015 I went to Europe with the Psychology Department for a study abroad trip. If I’m not traveling, you can probably find me curled up in a corner somewhere watching a documentary on Netflix. I can’t wait to meet you all!

Hello everyone! I am a fourth-year double majoring in Psychology and Criminology from eastern Ohio, where I literally have no neighbors (yes, I live that far out in the sticks and miss it every day). I am also pursuing an Associate's Degree at Columbus State Community College in automotive technology. My career goals include working in the prison system through creating re-entry programs for offenders or as a correction officer. I am also hoping to move south one day (I think I have experienced one-too-many of these lovely Ohio winters...). I love being busy and having a to-do list, but in my free time I like to feed my Netflix addiction, watch any baseball game, play volleyball, and spend time with my little Yorkie-poo named Bingley and my cat named Mister. I am looking forward to meeting you all and helping you learn to navigate OSU! Feel free to email me or stop me in person with any questions!

Hey everyone! I am a fourth-year from Cincinnati, OH majoring in Psychology with a Disability Studies minor. I hope to use my degree to attend graduate school for Occupational Therapy. When I'm not busy planning Psych department events with my fellow ambassadors, you can find me singing with the Women's Glee Club, running experiments at the CAIDe Social Psychology Lab in Lazenby, networking with alumni as a member of the Student-Alumni Council, or watching Grey's Anatomy at my apartment. I also love going to OSU football games, getting involved in community service, and hanging out with my friends, family, and cats.

Hi everyone! I'm a fourth-year Psychology major with minors in Leadership and Organizational Communication. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I hope to go to graduate school for Human Resources here at Ohio State and work for a company around Columbus so I can stay close to my family. In my free time I love to read, cook and watch HBO. I recently binge-watched every episode of Game of Thrones. If I could travel anywhere in the world, it would be Australia.

Hi everyone! I am a third-year Psychology major with minors in Neuroscience and Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies from Cincinnati, Ohio. I hope to attend grad school in the future, and I currently work as a research assistant in the Self Control Lab. When I'm not in class or sporting my red polo, you can find me singing with Scarlet and Grace Notes, the premier all-female acappella group on campus, or bundled up in my Gryffindor robes watching Harry Potter. Flag me down if you see me around campus, I'm always open to grabbing a few scoops of ice cream or a nice cup of coffee with new people!

Hey! I am a fourth-year Psychology major and Neuroscience minor from Brunswick, Ohio. I am a big Browns, Indians, and, of course, Buckeyes fan and love going to as many games a year as I can. When I’m not in class or working with my fellow Psychology Student Ambassadors, I am either working as a research assistant in the Social Psychology Lab, or I am working out at the RPAC. I also enjoy spending the weekends relaxing with friends or visiting family. I plan on attending a graduate program in Clinical Psychology and to one day become a Neuropsychologist.

Hello! I am a second-year Psychology major from Marlboro, New Jersey. After graduation, I hope to go to graduate school and become an Applied Behavioral Analyst to help promote learning in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. My time at Ohio State so far has been even more amazing than I expected. I have found my home with Pi Beta Phi Sorority and obtained an internship with the Haugland Learning Center. I look forward to making as many connections as I can within the Psychology department and creating memories that will last me a lifetime! Go Bucks!

Hello! I’m a fourth-year from Cincinnati, OH. I’m double majoring in Psychology and Media and Technology Communications and getting a minor in Global Public Health. At OSU, I’m involved with the Honors & Scholars Programming Board and the Muslim Students' Association. I am also doing social psychology research in Dr. Duane Wegener’s lab. In the future, I would like to get a MPH (Master of Public Health) and focus on mental health awareness or healthcare accessibility. In my free time, I love to hang out with friends and family, and spend too much time watching Netflix.

Hi everyone! I'm a fourth-year Honors student studying Psychology and Sociology with a minor in Sexuality Studies, and I'm from Strongsville, Ohio. I am a research assistant in a clinical psychology lab studying emotion regulation and am working towards completing an Honors Thesis. I also love statistics and work as a Peer Expert in the Psych 2220 Learning Lab. My hobbies include practicing yoga, writing poetry, reading, and volunteering. I also go to concerts and eat delicious food as much as possible. I love Ohio State, all of the amazing classes I've been able to take here (like skydiving!), and the fact that we are National Champions. Go Bucks!

Hi everyone! I am a second-year Psychology major from Jacksonville, Florida. I am a born and bred Buckeye and I love everything about this University. When I’m not in my red polo for Psychology Student Ambassadors, you can find me around campus in another red polo for the Student Alumni Council. In my free time I like to binge-watch Netflix, attend any OSU sporting event, spend time with my friends, and explore Columbus. In the future, I hope to attend graduate school for Industrial and Organization Psychology (maybe in a state with a milder climate). I can’t wait to meet you all and I am always available for a cup of coffee or scoop of ice cream! Go Bucks!
