2017 - 2018
President: Celena Chouest
Hello. My name is Celena Chouest. I am presently a senior working towards my Degree in Psychology. I am excited and honored to serve on the Psi Chi executive board as President for 2017-18. Last year, I served as Treasurer. I will always cherish my time at UNO. I have had the privilege of working with some of the most amazing people and have formed many valuable friendships. I love our UNO family!
I have worked in UNO's Carelab, under Dr. Sonia Rubens for the past two years. Currently, I am working in Dr. Beaton's SCAN lab. After graduation, I plan on attending grad school to pursue a Ph.D. in a psychology related field. I am particularly interested in biopsychology and neuropsychology.
Vice President: Arlette Murillo
I am a senior majoring in Psychology. I plan on attending grad school for a Masters in Counseling in Clinical Mental Health so that I can later work on getting my Ph.D. in Forensic Psychology. My professional goal is to work with young adults in prison settings and help them get through the situations that brought them where they are now.
Secretary: Nola Laurette Filhiol
Hello, as the secretary of Psi Chi, I am responsible for making sure all aspects of our Executive Board meetings are recorded and used to influence and enhance the future meetings. I have experience in positions of leadership, and I chose to become a part of this organization, both as a regular and an Executive Board member, because it will give myself better opportunities to network with students and faculty in the field of Psychology. My major is Psychology, and I will graduate in the Spring of 2018. I plan to continue my education in graduate school, either earning my Master’s or PhD. Contact me if you have any questions about becoming a member or what it is like to be an Executive Board member!
