Hello! My name is Brittany Gilman. This is my second year here at WSU. I am a senior and I’m set to graduate Fall 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a minor in human resources. I plan to continue attending WSU after graduation so I can obtain my MBA.

Hello! My name is Sheridan Ingalls. I moved from Alaska to Vancouver, Washington to pursue my higher education.

Major: Criminal Justice
Expected Graduation: 
May 2020
Current City: 
Virginia Beach, VA

Hi! My name is Dominique Maxcy and I am currently serving my second term as Chief Justice of ASWSUG’s Judicial Committee. I started at WSU in Fall 2018 and came in as a transfer student. I have always been fascinated with crime and chose Criminal Justice as my major. After graduation, I will be completing a Master’s degree in Accounting with the goal of becoming a forensic accountant.

I am a Virginia native, but found myself in Washington after needing a change of pace. Although it was a difficult transition, making the move was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am very grateful that my path led me to WSU. Now that I am back on the East Coast, I am still able to continue my education and be actively involved with other students. When I’m not studying, I am working full time in banking operations. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, cruises, couponing, and cooking. I am looking forward to graduating and all of the opportunities it will bring.

Major: Economics
Expected Graduation: 
Summer 2020
Current City: 
Spokane, Washington

My name is Cynthia Ocegueda and I am in my last year as an undergraduate in WSU Global’s Economics program, with a focus in Management. I restarted my academic career as a Global student at WSU in 2017 after a lengthy break in which I was a single mother and the sole supporter of my children. My background is in non-profit work and local government administration. I’m excited to serve on ASWSUG this term. My goal is to ensure students are receiving the resources and support they need to thrive as online learners.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our beautiful, blended family. We like hiking, traveling, and experiencing new things. After graduation this Spring, I plan to attend graduate school to earn a master’s degree in Business Administration.

Major: Psychology
Expected Graduation: 
Spring 2020
Current City: 
East Wenatchee, Washington

My name is Katelyn Rinker and I am a senior at WSU. I transferred from Walla Walla Community College, which is where I earned an Associates of Arts degree and my nursing assistant certification. Working in the nursing field gave me the opportunity to care for patients with either psychological, neurological, developmental, and medical conditions. This experience motivated me to go to WSU to earn a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. I plan to further my education after I graduate by working on a Master’s in Behavioral Health and eventually a PhD in Psychology.

I joined the senate at ASWSU because I want to be more involved with my university. I enjoy meeting new people, writing long essays, working with others on team projects, and organizing events. WSU has already given me the opportunity to participate in student government, learn from my psychology classes, and gather the respected insights of my professors. So I hope to give back to our university by working with the creative students at ASWSU, collaborating new ideas at senate meetings, learning from others, and building upon traditions like Coug Day at the Capital. I look forward to helping out with events and playing my role in maintaining WSU’s prestigious reputation as the best college in the state!

Expected Graduation: 
Spring 2021
Current City: 
Tri-Cities, Washington

Hi! My name is Gina Vasquez and I’m proud to be serving my WSU global cougs as a senator. Fall semester 2019 has been my first semester as a coug, I transferred from my local community college in Tri-Cities, WA with an AA. I’m currently pursuing a degree in anthropology. I’ve had a passion for learning and brining people together before becoming a senator, so doing this is something that truly makes my college experience more valuable.

Being a Washington native, I love spending time outside and try to get away for a hike or to the west-side whenever I can. But, when I can’t I like to wind down with a good book or movie with my friends and cat. Other hobbies include journaling, vacationing planning, making aesthetically-pleasing planners, and spending time with those I care about.
