A lifelong Sandy resident, Kelsey graduated from Jordan High School in 2015. She traded her basketball shoes in for climbing shoes after her outdoor orientation at Westminster left her loving the climbing culture she found here. She is grateful for all the opportunities Westminster has had to offer her the past three years, including giving her a job on campus in the Office of Institutional Advancement; selecting her as a presidential ambassador to work closely with former president Steve Morgan and President Beth Dobkin; granting her the presidency for Residence Hall Association (RHA) in 2017–18; guiding her on a 2018 May Term trip to Denmark, Sweden, and Iceland; and supporting her pursuit of a double major in psychology and sociology. Kelsey is interested in health, fitness, and the outdoors. She also loves all animals and would consider her spirit animal to be an owl.
An aspiring human rights lawyer, Diana is a junior majoring in public health, minoring in philosophy, and pursuing an Honors degree with the Honors College. She recently returned from a semester abroad at Korea University in Seoul, South Korea—an amazing experience that she could talk endlessly about. An active member on campus, she participates in clubs like Mock Trial and Ethics Bowl and founded Asian American Student Association Westminster and Griffins Taekwondo Club (she’s a Taekwondo black belt herself). Diana finds that the best way to ward off the stress of a busy schedule is to play some volleyball, binge-watch The Office (with the theme music blasting of course), enjoy a good read, and simply relax—even better with friends thrown into the mix!

She’s super stoked to be an RA this year and looks forward to getting to know you all.
