Get to Know Your 2018 Ambassadors!
Hey I’m Katie! I’m from Gold River, CA and I’m a senior Nursing major. I chose UP because of it’s kind, compassionate community. I also wanted a nursing school that was dedicated to holistic practice and always striving for the most recent evidence based practice. In my free time I enjoy exploring the food scene in Portland and love to get out to the water whenever I can. Feel free to say hi to me on campus, I love to talk and I’ll tell you some of my favorite places to eat around town!!
My name is Emily Holguin and I’m a senior Nursing student minoring in Theology! I’m originally from Ventura, CA and coming up to the PNW was one of the most exciting changes I’ve made. Overall UP has been nothing short of amazing these past few years, and the supportive atmosphere here is simply legit. When I’m not studying you can find me at a coffee shop, bugging my housemates with my guitar, or somewhere hanging around Mississippi Ave!
My name is Maree Hughes and I am a junior here on campus. I am originally from Tacoma, Washington and have lived there my entire life. I love the Pacific Northwest and wanted to stay in the area when I moved away for college. The University of Portland drew me in because of their direct entry nursing program and community feel. Life on the bluff is a perfect middle ground for me because I’m not a big city person, but I love all that the city of Portland has to offer. Some of my favorite experiences off campus involve exploring the city, whether it be the Portland night market, St. John’s small Saturday morning markets, or trying new restaurants, food trucks and coffee shops. I look forward to getting to know more of you as the year continues!
Hey! My name is Chad! I am a Senior nursing student and also Air Force ROTC cadet. I am from San Francisco, California. I hope to do emergency medicine/trauma nursing or flight nursing! I chose the University of Portland School of Nursing because of the prestigious education, tight-knit community, and seriously awesome professors! In my free time I love staying active and seeking adventures! I do triathlons, love hiking, exploring this beautiful city, eating delicious food, weightlifting, skydiving and anything outdoors! Be it all, Be a (University of Portland School of Nursing) Pilot!
