Name: Danielle Hoyer
Major: Public Health
Officer Position: Public Relations Committee Co-Chair
Officer Duties: I am working together with Amanda Wallace and the other officers to advertise to the University about our awesome club! We design flyers and then distribute them to the masses. Its our job to make sure each week everyone knows about the meetings and plant sales, and our goal is to make SURGe the most recognizable club on campus! What starts in the public relations committee changes the world!
SURGe Past: I joined SURGe my freshman year after learning about it at freshman orientation. It was a great way to meet new people while also learning about topics I love. I actively volunteered at many events like Longhorn Halloween and the ESI talks. Its great to have all ages become interested in science! I also can be found at the greenhouse every Friday for the plant sales, its a great place to relax and fundraise at the same time!
Research Experience: I am a part of the Aptamer stream in the FRI program under Dr. Ellington. It was really cool to be working in the lab of someone doing real research my first year of college! I look forward to being able to begin my own research project within the stream this Fall 2012 semester!
About Me: I am pretty nerdy/geeky when it comes to science. I have a bunch of nerdy science shirts that I love to wear and I am a dedicated Big Bang Theory fan. In my free time I (still) enjoy playing Pokemon on my Gameboy Color. I am an animal lover and I have two wonderful Golden Retrievers back home in San Antonio. My music tastes vary widely from week to week, you are just as likely to hear me listening to top 40 as classical, country, or alternative types. If I’m not studying you can probably find me curled up with a good book and my iPod.
