Katie Korenek

Vice President

Years at SHSU: 1 Semester 

Howdy SHSU students and staff, my name is KatieLynn Korenek and I am currently a sophomore here at SHSU. I grew up in ole Katy, Tx, and am a Biomedical Sciences Major with a Pre-Medical concentration. Ever since I was a little girl, I had always wanted to help people and take care of them, at all costs. As I grew older, I learned the medical field is where my heart belongs. In high school I assisted in Sports Medicine as a student trainer and a chairman for a club called H.O.S.A. (Health Occupations for Students of America). As an individual who knows the struggles around a chronic illness (diabetes- type 2), I understand the importance of GOOD healthcare, and I would love to help the change to improve care on campus for SHSU students.I'm beyond excited for this semester, and S'CO Kats!.
