|Vice President||Amanda Blanco
My name is Amanda Blanco and I am pleased to be your GNSA Vice President for the 2014-1015 academic year. I am from a small city outside of Los Angeles and completed my Bachelor's of Science in Physiology at UCLA. Prior to beginning the program I was interested in pediatric nursing; however, I have loved almost every unit I have worked on and can see myself in an Intensive or Progressive Care Unit after graduation. Currently, I work as a nurse assistant in a Progressive Care/Telemetry unit at Sharp Grossmont Hospital and in my free time I love being active, cooking and shopping.
My name is Rosemary Eppinger, and I am your GNSA secretary for the 2014-2015 academic year. I am beginning my second and final year in the MEPN program, and look forward to becoming an RN. I grew up in the mountains of Colorado where I quickly found excitement in outdoor adventure. I like to think I am an avid hiker, skier, rock climber, river rafter, and yogi. I obtained my BA from the University of Colorado Boulder in Integrative Physiology, where I also conducted research in Reproductive Neuroendocrinology. I began to lose excitement in research and sought a new path. After EMT school, a year of volunteering in an ED, and another working with image recovery in cancer patients, I found myself in nursing school in San Diego. I am unsure of what avenue in nursing I want to venture down as I find joy in geriatrics, oncology, pediatrics, and just about everything else. I look forward to serving as a member of the GNSA executive board to ensure a positive, progressive, and dynamic learning environment at USD’s Hahn School of Nursing.
My name is Devan Humphries and I'm eager to serve as your 2014-15 GNSA Treasurer. I was a business major in my pre-nursing life and have been working as an Associate for a Public Finance Consulting Firm for the last six years. I'm so excited to be a nurse and enjoy being in the MEPN program. My other interests fall between traveling, taking naps, wearing flip flops, trying new restaurants, helping my friends figure out Excel spreadsheets, swimming, hiking, applying my knowledge of How I Met Your Mother to my friends' lives, and the trinity of wine, coffee, and chocolate. I'm honored to be able to serve on your GNSA board and be the one to help keep track of the GNSA finances. Also, if you ever require a reimbursement, I'm the person you want to talk to. I look forward to seeing you all at the meetings!
