Hello! My name is Brittany Gilman. This is my second year here at WSU. I am a senior and I’m set to graduate Fall 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a minor in human resources. I plan to continue attending WSU after graduation so I can obtain my MBA.

Expected Graduation: 2020

Hi there! My name is Mary Chalk and I am a psychology major at WSU. It is important for me to be involved in the student government because I care about the experience and wellbeing of my fellow students.

Veronica Blancato, Student Resources Committee Chair

Major: Psychology 
Expected Graduation: Fall 2020
Current City: San Jose, California

Hello everyone! My name is Veronica Blancato and I'm in my final year of studying at WSU. I transferred here from San Jose City College after earning my Associate of Arts degree in Psychology. Once I graduate with my Bachelor's degree, I plan to continue studying Psychology in graduate school and hopefully receive my Ph.D.

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York (just outside of New York City) and moved to San Jose, California three years ago. When I'm not working or studying, I enjoy practicing yoga, watching cooking competition shows, listening to music, and spending time with my husband and our friends. While I am still discerning the career path I want to pursue once I earn my graduate degree, I am passionate about helping families dealing with terminal illnesses, navigating the foster care system, and experiencing unexpected loss or grief. I hope to build a clinical practice one day, as well as become a college professor.

As a new Senator and Student Resources Chair, I plan to use my experience as a non-traditional college student to improve the overall student experience and help enact positive change. I enjoy being a leader and look forward to working on a team of students to accomplish goals with a student-first mindset.

Gina Vasquez, Senator

Major: Humanities 
Expected Graduation: 
Spring 2021
Current City: 
Tri-Cities, Washington

Hi! My name is Gina Vasquez and I’m proud to be serving my WSU global cougs as a senator. Fall semester 2019 has been my first semester as a coug, I transferred from my local community college in Tri-Cities, WA with an AA. I’m currently pursuing a degree in anthropology. I’ve had a passion for learning and brining people together before becoming a senator, so doing this is something that truly makes my college experience more valuable.

Being a Washington native, I love spending time outside and try to get away for a hike or to the west-side whenever I can. But, when I can’t I like to wind down with a good book or movie with my friends and cat. Other hobbies include journaling, vacationing planning, making aesthetically-pleasing planners, and spending time with those I care about.

Bio Coming Soon!

Katelyn Rinker, Senator

Major: Psychology
Expected Graduation: 
Spring 2020
Current City: 
East Wenatchee, Washington


My name is Katelyn Rinker and I am a senior at WSU. I transferred from Walla Walla Community College, which is where I earned an Associates of Arts degree and my nursing assistant certification. Working in the nursing field gave me the opportunity to care for patients with either psychological, neurological, developmental, and medical conditions. This experience motivated me to go to WSU to earn a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. I plan to further my education after I graduate by working on a Master’s in Behavioral Health and eventually a PhD in Psychology.

            I joined the senate at ASWSU because I want to be more involved with my university. I enjoy meeting new people, writing long essays, working with others on team projects, and organizing events. WSU has already given me the opportunity to participate in student government, learn from my psychology classes, and gather the respected insights of my professors. So I hope to give back to our university by working with the creative students at ASWSU, collaborating new ideas at senate meetings, learning from others, and building upon traditions like Coug Day at the Capital. I look forward to helping out with events and playing my role in maintaining WSU’s prestigious reputation as the best college in the state!
