Hey wolves! We are going to introduce you to each PLUS Team Member throughout the summer, and to kick it off, we will start with one of our Student Coordinators, Amy Watkins! 
Amy is a senior majoring in Community Health and minoring in Psychology. This December she will be going on her fifth alternative break to Costa Rica, as well as finishing up her degree! She loves sleep, hiking and sushi, and would love to be able to travel with world and hang out with children.
