Your 2018-2019 SSIG Executive Committee


PRESIDENT

MEET:

RYAN PAWLOSKI, SPT

 

2nd year student at University of Illinois at Chicago

 

 

A little bit about Ryan:

"I'm an insatiable reader, and a far too interested in politics for my own good. I'm a huge nerd when it comes to science (especially Physiology) but I love to deep dive into random topics as well, anything from computer code to economics. I work on a PT news podcast in my spare time (Talus Media News, check it out!) and represent my PT classmates to try and get more equitable student representation in our PT program. I'm a recovering meathead and former strength and conditioning coach, and I love to explore craft breweries in Chicago. "


VICE PRESIDENT

MEET:

GEENA KERR, SPT

 

2nd year student at University of Illinois at Chicago

 

 

A little bit about Geena:

"I am originally from Michigan and studied Movement Science and Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan. I moved to Chicago to study at University of Illinois at Chicago for PT school. My time here has been both exciting and challenging, and I look forward to doing my next two clinicals in outpatient orthopedics and wound care. I am a feminist who loves to cook and eat vegetarian food. In my free time I also enjoy reading and listening to podcasts. I am passionate about women’s health and I am very interested in pursing a career in pelvic floor PT. "


SECRETARY/ TREASURER

MEET:

ALEXIS FUNK, SPT

 

2nd year student at University of Illinois at Chicago

A little bit about Alexis:

"I am from Northwest Indiana and have been going to school in Chicago for the past 5 years. Although it is a challenge to navigate around Chicago, I love finding new restaurants to try different food. I am currently interested in outpatient orthopedics and pediatrics and am looking forward to my next 2 clinical rotations in outpatient orthopedics. I have found a passion for manual therapy and am excited to delve more into the topic. 
I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, and working out. I have recently become obsessed with yoga and hope to incorporate it into my practice. I love the outdoors and enjoy kayaking when the weather is not too cold! I also have a love for sports and continue to coach softball to all ages. "


SPECIAL EVENTS COORDINATOR

MEET:

MELINA CLARK, SPT

 

1st year student at Midwestern University

 

 

A little bit about Melina:

"I'm a first year DPT student at Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL. I'm still deciding what I want to specialize in as a PT, but I think I want to go into orthopedics and work with dancers and athletes, as these disciplines fascinate me. In my free time, I enjoy baking, traveling with my fiance, and hiking with my 10 month old black lab, Sirius! I've lived in the Greater Chicago-land area for over 5 years now and have loved every minute of it."


SPTA DIRECTOR

MEET:

JACKIE ARCEO, SPTA

 

1st year student at Fox College

 

 

A little bit about Jackie:

"I was born and raised in the Philippines and came here July of 2014. Being an outsider, I wanted to be a part of something. I started working at Marianjoy as a housekeeper and that’s where I knew what I wanted to do in life. I transferred from being a housekeeper to being a tech and instantly fell in love with Physical Therapy. Now, I’m few months in to a PRA program and I’m enjoying every single moment of it!!! I also love going outdoors, watching movies and musicals, and a lot of fun things with friends and family!!"
