Kelsie Jordan – President jordanke@onid.orst.edu

Hi I’m Kelsie and I am a senior majoring in EXSS with a pre-physical therapy option. I am from portland, Oregon but I spent this last summer in Salamanca, Spain finishing my spanish minor. In my free time I enjoy reading, running, hiking, and swimming. Im always down to talk about Harry Potter and eating dark chocolate is also one of my favorite past times. I am looking forward to being more involved with the PTAH club and helping students prepare for their future careers.

Hi I’m Laura, I’m the current vice president of the PTAH club and a senior here at Oregon State (go Beavs!). My major is Exercise and Sport’s Science with an emphasis on pre-medicine. I plan on attending medical school a year after graduating from OSU in June. I am a huge fan of the outdoors and I love hiking, photography, piano, dance and running. I see a lot of great things happening already for the PTAH club and am excited to see what this year holds.

My major is fitness and nutrition but I am taking the pre-recs to get into a physical therapy program. I love outdoor and doing things like hiking, camping and riding and fishing. I work as a fitness instructor and love to be active as well. I am the treasurer or finance officer of the club.


Merilea Valenzuela – Public Relation valenzme@onid.oregonstate.edu

I am from a small country town near Eugene called Veneta and I went to Elmira high school. I transferred to OSU after 2yrs at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg. As a senior this year I’m really excited about nearly starting grad school for OT along with opportunities to travel and expand academically! Between now and then I hope I get more experience working with all ages volunteering in clinics and especially in rehab. Since joining this club a year ago I have made super good friends who are there for you through school and out in the real world. I enjoy all forms of dancing, watching out dated tv shows, and working as an aquatics fitness instructor.
