Leadership Positions in The Fellows Society

Chair of the Fellows Mentoring Initiative Committee, 2022-2023

I am excited to accept this position because of how foundational the Fellows Society has been for me during my time as a graduate student at Florida State. I have been able to find mentors and friends across a wide range of disciplines who have both helped my work and fostered a sense of community. I hope as this initiative enters its second year, we can continue to expand and reach even more Fellows at different stages of their studies and careers. 

Secretary/Historian of the Fellows Development Committee, 2021-2022

I greatly enjoyed my time on the Development Committee during the 2020-2021 school year, and I would be honored to work for the committee as a Historian/Secretary. In addition to working with the committee to plan fun and service-oriented events, I would love to contribute further to the group by acting as Historian/Secretary.
