Self Portrait_BigCourtney Buck — BUGS President

Hello everyone!
My name is Courtney Buck and I will be your BUGS President for the 2018-2019 school year! I have been a member for about three years and last year I was co-treasurer, so I am knowledgeable about the ins and outs of BUGS. Additionally, our BUGS members have been like a family to me ever since I joined and I hope to continue that trend with all our new and returning members!
A little about myself: I am a Senior majoring in Biology following the Pre-Med track with a goal to go on to Medical School. I am striving to become a physician specializing in Infectious Disease! When I am not studying I am either playing (video)games with friends, skiing, working, or doodling on a sketchpad.
I am really excited to implement a lot I have brainstormed with some of the other officers to make this year fun and exciting for all of us!
I cannot wait to meet, collaborate, and have a blast with you all!

Hello, everyone! My name is Audrey Haesen and I’m very excited to be, yet again, your Co-Vice President for the 2018-2019 year. Besides from the fact that I am currently on the pre-med track, I am a junior pursuing a BS in biology with a minor in chemistry. I love traveling, reading, hiking, practicing calligraphy, and bullet journaling. Also, I’m originally from Belgium and can speak fluent French. If you are open to new experiences and developing new friendships, then this organization is perfect for you! I hope to contribute my leadership, positive attitude and teamwork skills to BUGS. If you have any questions or ideas that could benefit our society, don’t hesitate to reach myself or any of the other officers.
