MEET THE TEAM
Look out for us at the next SAMS event and come say hi!
Hi! My name’s Ash and I’m your SAMS President for 2021 this year. I’m a 5th year student majoring in bio, psych, and physiology.
When you won’t be seeing me around campus, I’ll be cycling, making tik toks or preparing for the next event!
hi y'all! my name is jess and im a third year biomed student pleased to introduce myself as your SAMS vice-president for 2021.
in my spare time i love to nap, play piano, cook/eat copious amounts of asian food (esp korean!) and draft itineraries for trips that are way too expensive for me… you’ll probably be seeing a lot of me in most events related to biomed as dr. kate angel’s lil helper elf - so feel free to say hi and yarn whenever u spot me! (ꈍᴗꈍ)♡
Kia ora friends! I'm a postgrad biomed student and the 2021 secretary. I'm looking forward to an awesome year ahead!
A little about me; I'm a cook, and love all things cooking-related. Feel free to come say hi, or to have a little kōrero about anything, whether that be uni, balancing uni/work/life, mental health, and of course, cooking!
Hi everyone, I’m Amy! I’m a third-year biomed student, and I’m excited to join SAMS this year as treasurer and academic rep.
When I’m not in the Philson, you’ll find me cooking, exploring the Auckland food scene, or trying to convince my friends to join me on a good walk (Rangitoto anyone?)
Looking forward to meeting you all this year!!
TREASURER | ACADEMIC
Hello I’m Susan, a second year PhD student! I am excited to be your academic/post-grad rep and look forward to sharing some life hacks and tricks of the trade on how to get through uni life without dying (too much) inside!
In my spare time, I’m either walking my dog, playing with my dog, eating food or learning a language (currently Korean)!
ACADEMIC | POST-GRAD
Hey! I’m Liz and I’m a PhD student at the Centre for Brain Research. Having completed my BSc + Honours in Physiology, I hope I can share my experiences with you and help make sure you get the most out of your time at University!
Outside of the lab you’ll find me spending far too much money on food... all the time
ACADEMIC | POST-GRAD
Hey guys! I'm Fran, and I'm the 2021 Marketing Co-director working alongside Alana and Rishit. I was a first-year Biomed student last year, but now I am currently studying Bachelor of Medical Imaging (Honours).
I joined SAMS because it was one of the things that helped me confidently transition from high school to university life. Therefore, I think it's time for me to give back to the association!
Hey everyone, I’m Kreesan and the 2021 equity officers helping you get as engaged w/ SAMS as possible whether it be through events or academic advice for biomed papers!
Outside of uni Im very keen on staying fit and active by going to the gym or walking my dogs. I also find a bit of social hockey a good time. Hope you guys have a good year and always feel free to get in touch with me for any advice.
Hi! I’m Alana and I am a third year biomed student as well as the marketing rep for SAMS in 2021. I am a little addicted to social media so keep an eye out for quite a few SAMS posts from me!
I am constantly listening to all kinds of music, eating good food (follow my food instagram @alanafoodz), meeting new people and knitting!
Hello! My name’s Rishit, and I mainly work alongside Fran and Alana as the marketing co-director at SAMS! Currently I’m a second-year biomed student! I joined SAMS because I found it to be a really inclusive community for similar confused first-year students and I thought why not be a part of the team that makes it happen!
Bio coming soon!
