Adam Stonebraker - President,

It seems like a long time ago that I began my journey to become a nurse, taking night classes at Northeast State while balancing a career and family life. I was accepted into the College of Nursing to begin in the fall of 2012, at which time I left my job of over 13 years to become a fulltime student. Since then, I have embraced the college life. I have been an active member of SNA as well as the vice president for the class of December 2014. My goal for SNA is to engage nursing students of all levels, and help foster a sense of community within the College of Nursing.

Jocelyn Spenillo - Vice President, 

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, I came to Tennessee after graduating high school with the intention of only spending the summer here, while enrolled in ETSU's phlebotomy course. I fell in love with East Tennessee immediately and decided to stay for college. I am in the Honors- in-Discipline program where I hope to be conducting my research on visitor adherence to transmission based precautions.. As the oldest of five children, I developed my passion for taking care of others while caring for my younger siblings. Because of my passion for caring for others, it was very clear that nursing was the career for me. I hope to be the type of nurse who always exudes an inspiring charisma that can heal where medicine cannot.

Megan Jamerson - Secretary,

In 2008 I graduated from ETSU's College of Business receiving my BBA in management and integrated marketing communications. Immediately after graduation I moved to France where I taught English and began pursuing my MBA at Euromed Marseille Ecole de Management. Certain I was destined for a career in business, personal life experiences pointed me in an opposite direction – towards nursing. After living abroad for several years and after much consideration I returned home to Tennessee, starting anew at ETSU's College of Nursing in the fall of 2012. Since then, I have been an active member of SNA and am excited to spend my remaining semesters representing my fellow members and the College of Nursing.

 

Jacob

Chris Pircher—Treasurer -

I hold a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Athletic Training. After being a practicing Athletic Training for seven years, I felt there was something missing in my career. I got into nursing because my niece has Pfeiffers' Syndrome, and saw how much the nurses did to comfort her as well as my family. This sparked my interest in nursing and made the desire to become a nurse grow. I have always enjoyed taking care of people when they are in a time of need and comforting them. I became involved in SNA so I could give back to the college of nursing, the community, as well as ETSU. I feel it is important to get to know as many fellow students as possible and help them in any way.
