Meet Our Peer Educators
I am the Student Director of CARE. I'm a senior majoring in Sociology. In my free time I like to play sports, spend time with my friends and family, watch the office, and travel! I joined CARE because I have a passion for helping people. I am extremely into social issues and wanting to help and change the world. CARE has helped me learn a lot about those who have struggled through sexual violence and what we can do on our side to help.
I am the Associate Director of CARE. I am a senior with a major in Psychology and a minor in Spanish. Once I graduate my hopes are to go to graduate school and receive my Master of Social Work and work with young adults. In my free time I like to workout, cook, and spend time with my friends. I decided to join CARE because I have always wanted to work with the campus community by being able to impact students in a positive way and learn how to be a resource for people. I also believe that working with CARE will greatly benefit me in my future career plans.
My name is Alex Licari and this will be my second semester as a C.A.R.E peer educator. I am senior majoring in Social Work with a psychology minor. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, being outside, and watching new movies! I love working with children and have worked at a summer camp for the past three years. I joined C.A.R.E to learn more about topics dealing with healthy relationships and sexual assault. I am also very passionate about wanting to educate others on these topics. C.A.R.E has given me the opportunity to stretch myself and really step out of my comfort zone.
My name is Ceasar Mendros and I am a senior majoring in Psychology with a minor in Spanish. Once I finish my undergraduate studies, I am pursuing a Master’s degree in Counseling. I am really passionate about making a difference in the lives of others; I am currently on my 2nd year of being a Community Advisor and it helps me to practice my passion. Being part of CARE has also given me the opportunity to make a difference by educating and promoting healthy relationships, and preventing sexual violence especially on campus. Besides being active on campus, I also enjoy taking care of myself through running, swimming, hiking, eating and sleeping.
My name is Katie Jankowski and I am a senior, majoring in women and gender studies. In my free time, makeup and beauty are big passions of mine. Once I graduate I hope to do something in the online media field dealing with beauty and body positivity for both women and men. I joined C.A.R.E because I believe it is important for people to be aware of domestic violence issues, and it is a subject that I wanted to be more educated on since it has affected people I've known in the past. I hope to learn more about how to help someone in a domestic violence situation, and to promote healthy relationships!
My name is Kyrsten James. I am a senior majoring in Psychology and I am graduating in December. After graduation I will be attending graduate school to receive my Masters of Social work and work in violence prevention. In my free time I enjoy working out, watching sports and doing research. I joined CARE because I feel that sexual violence needs to be talked about. I am very passionate about rape culture and am hoping to educate the students on campus about the myths associated with rape culture. CARE has given me an opportunity to advocate on these issues that I plan on devoting my life to.
My name is Callie Orme. I am a peer educator for CARE. I am majoring in Psychology and minoring in Women's and Gender studies. I will be graduating in December and hope to continue my education in a master's program in Social Work. In my free time I like to watch movies (I am a huge movie buff!), go biking, read, and spend time with family when I can! As a victim's advocate for REACH, I wanted to continue my advocacy for students going through sexual assault as well as gender violence, stalking, and harassment right here on campus. I think it's important to provide all students the resources and support they need and promote healthy relationship education. CARE is a wonderful opportunity to get involved in the community and show compassion for others.

I joined CARE because I wanted to learn more about sexual assaults and healthy relationships, so that I can help educate the campus about these topics and get students to talk about this topic.
