Like many of my classmates I took my pre-requisites for the Portland campus in McMinnville. I am from Milwaukie OR, just over the Willamette River. I am fortunate to have a huge family that is extremely supportive. Without them I’m not sure I would be able to attend a school like Linfield. I have always enjoyed being involved in a wide variety of activities, such as student government and sports. In High School I was a year round athlete. After school sports were where I put the majority of my energy. The basketball court was my home away from home. Once I got to college I chose to give up basketball competitively but I still enjoy playing for fun. Like many nursing majors I was torn between nursing and teaching. However, senior year my grandpa was diagnosed with severe heart disease. Medicine saved his life and in that moment I knew nursing was where I belonged.
Hey everyone! My name is Chelsie McConville and I am very excited to be the Vice President of Programming. I am from the small the small town of Sisters, Oregon where I fell in love with the outdoors. I spent two years on the McMinnville campus where I played basketball and found a passion for American Sign Language. Growing up in Central Oregon I dove head first into mountain biking, running and swimming which led to my love for triathlons. I am honored to be a part of ASLC-PC and look forward to what this year has to hold.
Hello! I'm Catie, the Club Director for the 2013-2014 school year. I grew up in Canby, Oregon, where I went to school from 1st-12th grade. I lived in Silverton, OR for my senior year of high school but made the commute to Canby to finish up school with my friends. My first year of college was spent at Western Oregon University as a Music Major. About half way through, I realized my true calling was nursing. I applied to the Linfield Mac campus and started there in the fall of 2011. After completing all of my prerequisites in one year, I moved to the Portland Campus to start my nursing education! I teach music part time at Tigard High School because though I feel the nursing call, I still love music! You can often find me playing guitar and serenading people! I will be graduating this spring and can't wait to see what the future holds for me as a nurse! I am excited to be part of the ASLC-PC team and to work with the many clubs we are so lucky to have at our school. Make sure you join a club and get involved!
Hello! My name is Alisha, I'm the Senator for the August 2014 cohort and I'm very proud to represent such a great group of students! I grew up in Philomath, Oregon. I have a previous degree in psychology from Western Oregon University, but after graduation and working a few years I decided I needed a change. Nursing seemed like a great fit and so far I love it. I have not decided what area of nursing I want to go into after I graduate because right now I want to try everything!
Hey everyone! My name is Chelsie Cunningham and I am privileged to not only be a part of the December 2014 cohort but to also represent them. I grew up in a small farm town called Grass Valley, Oregon, but spend my time in Prineville where my parents just recently moved. I went to the McMinnville campus and then transferred here to the PDX campus. I hope to one-day work on an Oncology Med-Surg floor, but I am open to any opportunity that may come my way. In addition to nursing, I love playing sports, reading and spending time with my crazy, but loving family. I’m excited to be a part of ASLC-PC and can’t wait to meet all of you!
My name is Ryan Lively and I am enrolled in my first term at Linfield-Good Samaritan School of Nursing. I spent the first 14 of my 21 years living in central Oregon, and the latter in upstate New York. I attended Portland State University for two years after high-school, and until I gained acceptance to Linfield. I enjoy getting outside whenever possible, listening to records, reading, and going on road trips. I love road trips. My goal as a ASLC-PC officer is to assist the students of Linfield by letting their voice be heard by the college. I am excited to work with the students and staff of Linfield this upcoming term.
This position will be filled during the Fall 2014 elections.
My name is Lexi Sayer and I am a semester one student from Chugiak, Alaska. I transferred up from the McMinnville campus a year behind the rest of my class in order to study abroad and complete requirements for my anthropology major. I am glad to have finally made it up to the big city and am excited for the opportunity to become part of this vibrant campus community. Like any good North Westerner, I love spending as much of my time as possible in the beautiful outdoors. It is this love that motivates me in seeking sustainable solutions to everyday problems. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Becky this semester and am excited to jump into the many awesome projects she has in the works. In such a small, dynamic community, there is great potential for meaningful student contribution and cooperation. Let’s get busy making this campus an even greater, greener community space! Please contact either Becky or myself with any sustainability-related questions, feedback, or ideas. Have a wonderful semester!
