Meet the Executive Board
Jessica Gray, Executive Coordinator
Hello! My name is Jessica and I am a super senior studying Social Work. I enjoy being goofy with friends, making corny jokes, being the mom friend and exploring other cultures. When I am not with ASB I am enjoying life as an RA, listening to my records and working with the Service Learning and Student Engagement Center. This will be my second year with ASB and I absolutely love it! Last year I was a site leader for the Supporting At- Risk Communities trip and I can honestly say it changed my life! I am excited for you to explore your social issues and get to know ASB. I hope you enjoy yourself and come to love the organization as I have! I promise you will not regret it!

Brooke Lindberg, Finance Coordinator
Hi everyone! My name is Brooke Lindberg and I’m a senior in the College of Nursing. On the rare occasion that I have a life and get to do things, I binge watch Netflix, sleep on the streets of NYC for Jimmy Fallon tickets, and enjoy the great outdoors! You should totally, definitely, maybe sign up for an ASB trip (or don’t! your loss…). This is my second year with ASB. I was a site leader for the “Helping those with HIV/AIDS share their voice” trip last spring. ASB has changed my perspective of service and has sparked my interest in nursing policy and advocacy.

Allie Irwin, Education Coordinator
Hi, I’m Allie! I’m a junior pre-medical student majoring in Spanish! This is my second year being apart of ASB, and I’m so grateful to be apart of an organization that puts together so many life changing service trips. ASB has been such an amazing experience that has allowed me to give back to the community, and meet so many amazing people while doing so! I’m so excited for the trips to come, and I hope you are too!

Sarah Chang, Service Coordinator
Hello, hello! My name is Sarah and I am a senior studying Human Biology, pre-optometry at MSU. I’m only 5’2” so you might have a hard time spotting me on campus, but if you do happen to find me, I’m probably drinking a large cup of coffee or awing at dogs and squirrels. This will be my fourth year with ASB and I hope you grow to love it as much as I do! I started ASB as a participant my freshman and sophomore year and became a site leader my junior year. Ask me about any of the trips I have been on and I will be happy to share with you my experiences! (Just make sure you have a few hours to spare). I am super, super excited to be on your E-board this year and I hope to make a life changing experience for you like the past E-board members have done for me! I hope I can make you as excited and passionate as I am about this organization!

Hey guys! I'm Renee and I'm a junior in Lyman Briggs studying human bio on a pre-med track. This will be my second year apart of ASB and my first on E-board, last year I was apart of the rebuilding the lives of refugees trip (It was nothing short of amazing).

Lauren Caramagno, Communications Chair
Hi! My name is Lauren Caramagno, and I am a junior studying zoology with a minor in cognitive science. I joined ASB last spring and participated on a trip where we supported individuals with special needs on a farm setting through horseback physical therapy. I am very passionate about serving, animals, the Red Wings, and pandas. I have recently discovered Netflix, so when I am not serving you can usually find me Netflix and chilling with my dog Bella (as seen in picture). I am really excited to be your communications chair this year so don’t be afraid to contact me if you need anything, have any questions, or want to share your story about your ASB experience! I am really talkative. And don’t forget to check out our ASB insta!! #MSUASB
Megan Gildersleeve, Domestic Trip Planner
Hi! My name is Megan Gildersleeve and I am a sophomore studying Human Biology through Lyman Briggs college. This is going to be my second year with ASB, and my first year on the E-board. During my freshman year, I went on the Aid for Aging Veterans trip as a participant, and learned so much about volunteering and social issues. I love traveling, meeting new people, and being outside, either hiking, hammocking, or just going on adventures. I highly recommend ASB to anyone who wants to make a difference and learn more about themselves. I am so excited to meet all of you! GO GREEN!
Sarah Babijaev, Domestic Trip Planner
Hello y'all! My name is Sarah Babijaev and I'm a senior studying Neuroscience through the college of Lyman Briggs and am also pursuing a minor in Bioethics. I hope to someday pursue medical school after my career here at MSU. My favorite activity is eating a huge bowl of steamed broccoli with Netflix on blast. This is my third year as a part of ASB and my first year as a part of E-Board and I'm super excited to start this journey. I've been to Tennessee to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and site lead a trip to Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch in Montana. ASB is such a magical opportunity and I can't wait to send more trips out so that more spartans can find their service family!
Alexandra Kaminske, Domestic Trip Planner
Hey everyone! My name is Alexandra, and I am a sophomore studying Kinesiology on a Pre-Med track with a minor in Health Promotion and Spanish. This is my second year being involved in ASB. I was a participant last year, and I absolutely loved my trip and everyone I met on it. I would recommend everyone to go on at least one ASB trip because the experience is extraordinary. ASB trips allow you to step outside of your comfort zone and live life to the fullest. I enjoy pineapple, running, playing soccer, and laughing. I am looking forward to another awesome year with ASB! :)
Julia Tu, Domestic Trip Planner
Hi breakers! My name is Julia, and I'm a junior pursuing a biochemistry degree on this beautiful MSU campus. ASB is an incredible group that allows you to jump in and make a real difference, while simultaneously bringing genuine, passionate people together! As a trip planner, I hope to give every fellow Spartan breaker this chance to give back, step out of their comfort zone, and learn about the world. When I'm not stuck in lab, I hit plastic with sticks on the MSU Drumline, and 8 times out of 10, I'll probably be in my cow onesie forcing my roommates to play dominoes.
Adam Artzberger, Events and Fudraising Chair
Hi I’m Adam, I am a Junior studying Human Bio in Lyman Briggs. I joined ASB last year because I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and do something bigger than myself. My trip to Alabama was incredible to say the least. As the Events and Fundraising Chair I am super excited to raise lots of money and plan cool/fun events for all of you. Outside of ASB I like to hangout with friends and pet cute dogs. Can’t wait for you to love ASB as much as I do!

My first year I was a participant on the "HIV/AIDS Advocacy and Awareness" trip, last winter I was a site leader on the "Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation" trip, and I am now your International and Weekend Trip Planner.

These are trips that will truly impact you and have an influence your lives when you return home!
Kelly Esenther, Site Leader Chair
Hello Everyone! My name is Kelly and I am a sophomore Math Education major here at MSU. This will be my second year with ASB. Last year I was a site leader on the Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation trip and had an amazing time! I’m so excited to be part of Eboard this year and I definitely recommend getting involved in this wonderful organization yourself. When I’m not thinking about ASB you can find me eating cake in Brody, quoting Disney movies, doing math problems just for fun, giving tours of campus, or travelling the world. I can’t wait to see where ASB takes you this year.
