Rachael hails from the Portland area and is one of the co-presidents for the 2014-2015 school year. She has her possible career options narrowed down to: doctor, dentist, veterinarian, or professional dog petter. When she isn’t found lurking around Penrose Library, Rachael can be found swimming, reading, netflixing, eating blueberries, or finding free food around campus.
Morgan is a senior psychology major from the Portland area. She’s been involved with GlobeMed since she transferred here as a sophomore. For this upcoming year Morgan is one of the campaign coordinators. Outside of GlobeMed she has lots of adventures as she has traveled all over the world doing various internships and volunteer work. While in Walla Walla she spends most of her time at the Patisserie pretending to do homework. She’s also a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, which is a different kind of adventure in of itself. After graduation Morgan plans to travel and eventually go on to medical school.
Arika is a senior sociology major at Whitman. She is excited to be returning to GlobeMed’s eboard as a GHU coordinator. Aside from finishing up her final year of classes, writing her thesis and trying to figure out her life post-Whitman, Arika works at Whitman’s student health center, races with the cycling team and loves to go hiking with her dog, Toblerone. She is passionate about public health, women’s health, and chocolate (particularly in the labrador retriever form).

Hi, my name is Lauren Benedict, and I am hopefully going to be an environmental biology or an English or a straight up biology or even a chemistry major. I am from Colorful Colorado and I am lucky to be the Finance Chair for GlobeMed this year. I hope to help GlobeMed thrive from the backstage world of finances. My favorite movie is of course Back to the Future– I have watched this incredible cinatic accomplishment every August with my twin sister and older brother since I was 8 years old.
My name is Neha Naidoo and I am currently a Sophomore at Whitman. I am planning on majoring in Biophysics, Biochemistry, and Molecular Biology, and minoring in Race and Ethnic Studies. I really enjoy learning about global health and find that participating in GlobeMed is a great outlet to do so. I hope that after completing a graduate degree, I can contribute to improving health services on a global scale.
Hello! My name is Paige Organick and I am so excited to be co-directors of communications this year with Paal. I am a sophomore hailing from Spokane, WA. Aside from doing GlobeMed awesomeness, I am an SA in Anderson and am on the club tennis team. In my free time I attempt to figure out my major; it’s narrowed down to politics, economics, or some combination of the three. Or maybe not. The end goal is a career in Global Health. I also love geology, playing tennis and sailing, petting dogs and cats and baking.
Paal Nilssen is so excited to be the co-director of communications with Paige this year! He is a sophomore with a major centered around biology/chemistry/BBMB. He is on the Whitman men’s varsity soccer team and rock climbs, karaokes, and bakes creme brûlée in his free time. He originally hails from Norway, but says he is from Seattle. This avoids the “wow! Norway! Land of gnomes… and trolls!” reaction that most Book of Mormon-loving Americans give.
