Hi! I’m Danielle and I am a third-year majoring in Public Health with options in Health Management and Policy and Pre-Medicine along with a Biology Minor.  In addition to being an Academic Coach, I am an LA for BI 23x series and the Co-President for Isang Bansang Pilipino, the FilAm club on campus! Career-wise, I’m hoping to change some health policies, then attend medical school. I am from Oahu, Hawaii, and yes, I miss the sun and beaches very much. I love to do things like crafts, plant shopping, and baking.


Hello! My name is Ellie Olivares, and I am studying Biochemistry and Molecular Biology with an option in Pre-Medicine and planning to add a minor in Chemistry and a certificate in Applied Ethics. Along with being an Academic Coach, I'm also one of the Philanthropy Co-Chairs for Sigma Delta Omega, the science interest-based sorority on campus, and an LA for BI22XH series. Outside of work and studying, I like to play guitar, craft while watching cartoons, and host a radio show with my best friend where we talk about cool music, pop culture, and other fun things. Please feel free to reach out, and I look forward to meeting you!


Hello! My name is Emileni but feel free to call me Emily! I am a second year student majoring in Political Science as well as minoring in Social Justice. I am still on the hunt for what I want to do career wise, but I am loving the courses within my major and hope to one day do something in the realm of social justice. I enjoy cooking, listening to all kinds of music, and spending time with my friends and family! I look forward to meeting you and please do not hesitate to reach out!


Hello! My name is Harnit (pronounced har-neet) Mahal, and I am a third year psychology major. I’m originally from Northern California but moved to Corvallis after graduation and since have been exploring coffee shops to feed my caffeine addiction. In my free time, I love to read, cook, and bake different things. I’m ecstatic to be a part of the Academic Coaching team, and I look forward to meeting you!
