ANSA Board of Directors Nominees
Grady "Drew" Ezell
My name is Grady “Drew” Ezell and I am from Fort Worth, Texas. I am currently a senior nursing student and serve as EMSON SNA President to our chapter. My past leadership experience includes NHS President and Thespian Troupe 1373 President. From those leadership roles I have learned the importance of communicating with respect and valuing the opinions of all, and as a team anything is possible. After graduating, I aspire to become a Pediatric nurse working specifically with infants and toddlers. I enjoy photography, spending time with my friends and family, along with traveling. My favorite animal is a French Bull Dog and my Harry Potter house is Ravenclaw.
Breakthrough to Nursing
Hello everyone, my name is Reece, and I am a second-semester nursing student. I am from Flower Mound, Texas, but I grew up and spent my childhood in Cabot, Arkansas. I
have come to love the field of nursing over the time that I have spent in school. Currently I am
interested in critical care nursing, but I am still not sure what specific area I would want to work in.
After graduation I am planning to live in Little Rock, and I would love to work at either UAMS of ACH.
Something interesting about myself is that I have binged the entirety of The Office in 2.5 weeks.
Hi there, my name is Haley Mills! I am a second semester and I am from Rochester, MN. I want to be apart of the Arkansas Nursing Student Association Board to further advocate for my peers and community alike, helping to make a difference in safe and effective patient care and broaden opportunities for nursing students in the future. In the future, my dream is to work in Public Health Nursing, where I can promote wellbeing and be a voice for those in populations that often don't have access to adequate healthcare.
Hello, my name is Ashlynn Jones, and I am a second semester nursing student from Portland, Oregon. I am applying for the role of secretary to get involved in the ANSA and serve in anyway that I can. I feel that I would be a good candidate for secretary because I am
organized, take detailed notes, and enjoy leadership opportunities. I hope to get this
position so that I can learn from my peers and contribute to ANSA.
District II Director
My name is Farrah Naderi and I am a senior nursing student. I anticipate to graduate in May of 2021 and would love to work as a pediatric critical care nurse, either PICU or NICU. I am so excited to potentially hold a leadership position through the ANSA and made a difference in nursing students in the state of Arkansas. My main goal is to work with universities who do not yet have a SNA, and give them resources and information needed to start their own chapter.
District IV Director
My name is Kaylee Barnard, a junior nursing student. I aspire to be a preventative health nurse. I am passionate about promoting healthy lifestyles and increasing quality of life for my community. Preventative health care ultimately begins with education. I want to make a difference and promote student education. In my free time I enjoy
traveling and exploring new places to hike.
