PH-SAS Advisors for Spring 2018
“My name is Mikayla Borchin! I am a senior at San Diego State University (SDSU), expected to graduate in May of 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health. I am the President of Student for Public Health (S4PH) this academic year, and I have been a leading member of this organization since my freshman year at SDSU. I am also the Undergraduate Representative for the Graduate School of Public Health Alumni Committee. I am currently assisting Dr. Kristen Emory as her Research Assistant, where I have gained skills in how to interpret data and determine the needs of certain populations while implementing what I am learning in my coursework to assist in writing a grant proposal. I hope to continue my education at San Diego State as an Aztec for Life and obtain a Masters Degree in Public Health with an emphasis on Health, Management, & Policy. My future goal is to create, implement, & enforce healthcare laws in a hospital setting in hopes to achieve healthcare for all. I am a PH-SAS Advisor because I care immensely for the students on our campus, and enjoy helping members of our college/major further enhance their time at SDSU.
Fun fact about me: While I am not in school, working with on campus organizations, etc.. I am a full time Realtor!”
“Hello! My name is Ashtyn Nichols and I am a current junior in our Public Health program. This year, I have been serving as the treasurer and college council representative for Public Health Initiative (PHI). This is a new student org which coordinates trips to villages in Mexico for public health interventions. This year, I also began my internship with Gift of Life Marrow Registry. My job has been to educate people on the process of bone marrow donation and to assist in entering optimal aged people (college students!) into the public registry. After I finish with my undergraduate degree I would like to attend graduate school, hopefully at SDSU, to pursue a Masters in Public Health. In the future, my goal is to work with an organization that coordinates global disaster relief. I wanted to become a Public Health Peer Advisor because I want everyone to have the opportunity to get the most out of our amazing undergraduate program.
Fun Fact: I am member of the speech and debate team through the School of Communication ”
