President: Kellie Kirsch
Hello! My name is Kellie Kirsch. I’m a Junior majoring in Nutritional Science with an emphasis in Dietetics, in the Online campus. My long-term goal is to become a Registered Dietitian and work in private practice. I currently live in Southern California with my husband and our two children. We are a military family and have lived all over California for the last twelve years. As part of the student government, I plan to represent the students and their needs as a liaison between students and faculty. I look forward to serving and working together to ensure a positive college experience for everyone.
Executive Vice President: Kris Kelley
Hi! I am Kris Kelley. My major is Information Science and eSociety, with a minor in Public Relations. I currently work at The Disneyland Resort in Southern California. I am here with my husband and son. My dream is to work in social media for F1, but I would also love to work for a zoo or aquarium. Even though I am in California, I grew up in Arizona and it is fun to be back “home.” I joined the Student Government to give my peers a voice and to stay well-versed in the Wildcat community. I am pleased to work with such a great team that have this same goal.
