Alexandra is in her 4th year at University of Alberta majoring in Finance and minoring in Strategic Management and Organization. Also, she is very fortunate to be a member of the fourth cohort of the Leadership Certificate Program. Alexandra is very thankful for the amazing opportunities the University of Alberta has presented her with so far; from being a Resident Volunteer in Lister Center, to being on the Panda’s Golf Team, to competing in the McDonough Hilltop Business Strategy Competition in Washington, DC, to being the Director of Corporate Relations for the Alberta International Business Competition, Alexandra has had diverse and enlightening experiences in her first three years. Now, she is extremely excited to bring her passions and experience to an amazing cause, NEW 2017 of course! In her role as VP External she has a vision of not only creating an amazing experience for the delegates, but also to the sponsors and the executive team as well.
When she isn’t calculating finance things in the Winspear, you can probably find Alexandra going for a run, reading a classic book, heading to yoga class, or laughing way too loudly at one of her own jokes. Alexandra considers herself not only to be a Seinfeld enthusiast, but a connoisseur and also is very passionate about a good food and wine pairing. Alexandra is very excited for what this year has in store and can’t wait to give back to the University through the Network of Empowered Women!
Jordan is in her 4th year at the University of Alberta majoring in Business Economics and Law and minoring in Marketing. She is a jock turned involved business student, being a member of the University of Alberta Pandas Rugby Team, and the U-20 Canadian Women’s Rugby Team fortunate enough to have travelled to Seattle last summer to play in the Can-Am Series. This year, she is looking forward to being a Director on the NEW External team, the VP Events of the OM Club, and a member of the Not for Profit case team with JDC West. She is also an employee of IBM, so if you need any IT help, don’t contact her because she still struggles with turning her laptop on.
When she isn’t fueling her extremely serious caffeine addiction, forcing people to be her friend, or avoiding reading textbooks, she is probably listening to Beyonce or shenanigan-ing on a mountain somewhere. Jordan is also a self proclaimed movie expert, so if you ever want to catch a flick (not in a weird way), drink some coffee, or eat some good food, let her know.
Overall Jordan is very excited for the amazing conference that is NEW!
Clare is entering her second year of her Bachelor of Commerce, Cooperative Education degree, majoring in Finance. After attending the 2016 NEW conference, Clare felt inspired by the experience, and wanted to help deliver that experience to other students. She is delighted to now be involved with NEW, and is looking forward to working with the other NEW Executive to create an amazing conference! Other than being an External Director for NEW, Clare is also Finance Lead for the University of Alberta EcoCar team (a student group that designs and builds a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle), Vice President for the University of Alberta Ultimate Club, and is a Peter Lougheed Leadership College Scholar. One of Clare’s favourite hobbies is Ultimate Frisbee, she currently plays with the Edmonton Women’s Team, and has participated in Ultimate tournaments across Canada and the US. Clare enjoys travelling and has been to Indonesia, Australia, Singapore, Ireland, the USA, and is looking forward to her next travel opportunity.
