Faculty Advisor 

Heather Roese

The executive board consists of 18 students from the Junior, Senior and Graduate classes.  The board is overseen by a faculty advisor from the department of occupational therapy.  The executive board meets monthly, but committees serving under the board members may meet more frequently.  Serving as a board member  provides excellent leadership experience and helps develop professional skills many are looking for.
