Felicia Park, Vice President
My name is Felicia Park, I am a fourth year Bachelor of Arts student in Psychology. Since my second year I have been a general member of the Psychology Society, I love the awareness of physical and mental health that our program brings fourth and the various activities we host (my personal favourite … our bake sales). You might see me around Grenfell playing volley ball, working at the schools help desk, or lounging in our Psychology Demonstration Room (AS 348). I would consider myself to be a friendly face that loves to meet new people, so stop by and introduce yourself. J
Taylor Burt, Secretary
Hi there! My name is Taylor Burt, and I'm in the fourth year of my B.Sc. (Hons.) in Psychology. I'm usually in the library working away at something, but distractions are always welcome so feel free to stop by and have a chat. My last two years at Grenfell have been absolutely awesome, and I think the initiatives and events facilitated by the Psychology Society add so much to the experience of any and all Grenfell students! I really want to get everyone involved this year. So even if you're new to Grenfell, I would really encourage you to get out, and try something different! I hope to make this a year of fun-filled activities, helpful fundraisers, and new friends! If you have any questions about anything please don't hesitate to ask or send me an email! J
Amanda Saunders, Treasurer
Hi everyone! My name is Amanda Saunders, and l'm in my fourth year of a BSc. in Psychology. I've been a member of the society for the past year and l've truly enjoyed my time so far. Being able to help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and to raise funds for various mental health initiatives around the province has been so rewarding. I encourage any one of you to join the society (regardless of your major) if you are also interested in this type of work and wish to meet likeminded people. I'm always around campus, so feel free to stop and have a chat with me at any time! I'm more than willing to help in any way that l can!
Chloe Briand, Social Media Representative
Hi! My name is Chloe Briand. I will be starting my third year of a science degree in psychology in the fall. Not only am I entering my second last year of undergrad, I am also one of the society's social media representatives. My goal is to become a clinical psychologist. Therefore, I decided to immerse myself into the psychology community at Grenfell. From participating in research studies to attending Psychology Society meetings, these experiences have given me a more profound understanding of psychology itself. If you're curious about what the psychology society entails, just drop by the Dem Room. I look forward to seeing you there!
Anna Dollimount, Social Media Representative
Hey everyone, my name is Anna Dollimount! I am in my second year of a BSc. in Psychology and I have loved every moment of it so far. One of my favourite experiences of doing a Psychology Major has been being a member of the Psychology Society! I was a general member my first year, and now I am one of the two Social Media Representatives. Being a general member and watching how well the executive worked together really inspired me to get more involved. I hope we will get to see many new and returning faces this year. I look forward to working with everyone to continue making the Psychology Society a friendly and welcoming place. Our society is open to people of all majors and we value the ideas of everyone. If you see me around feel free to say hi or ask me any questions you may have! See you in the fall!
