PrOVES Staff Bios 2014


Zac Bolster

Hello everyone! My name is Zac and I’m studying Athletic Training here at UNH. I am currently a Junior here, but this is my first year being staff for PrOVES. I’m from the mystical land of Pennsylvania, but I’d like to think I’m New Englander at heart. PrOVES served as such a great transition into college for me after coming from “far” away. The experiences I had and the friends I made continue even until this day, but they all started within those first 7 days. I hope I can make the experience just as special for you as it was for me. See you soon!

Rebecca Collins

Hi, everyone! My name is Becca and I am so excited to be joining the PrOVES staff this fall! I’m a sophomore nursing student here in Wildcat Country. I love spending time outside, whether it be with my intramural team on the soccer field, or skiing throughout the winter. I stay involved on campus through clubs such as Project Sunshine and InterVarsity Fellowship. But above all, I love volunteering and seeing its impact. As a freshman coming into a big school, I was so lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of this amazing program. PrOVES introduced me to so many of my current friends, while helping the surrounding community of my new home! I can’t wait to spend your first week on campus with you!

Paige Cook

Hey everyone! My name is Paige Cook and I am going to be a junior here at UNH. I am a Psychology Major in the Pre-Health program. I was born and raised in New Hampshire and would not have it any other way! I love all things active and anything that makes me laugh. This is going to be my second year as a PrOVES staff member and I cannot be happier to be returning this year. The program is amazing and made my transition to college so much easier. I am looking forward to meet you all, see you in the fall!!


Lisa Edwards

Hello! My name is Lisa and I am a Genetics major from Colorado. This summer I will be doing research at UNH through a program called SURF, which is one of the many stipends UNH students can apply for! I am also a part of the honors program and I am going to be a junior this fall. I love the ocean and enjoy many activities including biking, surfing, scrapbooking, soccer, dance, and watching movies. This past semester I also participated in an alternative spring break challenge trip to Georgia where I worked on the Appalachian trail, which was so much fun! This is my second year as a PrOVES staff member and I am really excited to meet all of you. I hope you have a great summer and I will see you in the fall!

Christina Foster

Hi guys! My name is Christina Foster, and I am from Santa Cruz, California. I am going to be a sophomore this coming year, and I am majoring in Occupational Therapy and minoring in Kinesiology with an emphasis in exercise science. I love doing community service work, and I do missions trips to Mexico twice a year. Needless to say, helping people and the environment are two things I enjoy doing, and they bring me so much joy. Two of my favorite things are sports and laughing. I am a huge sports fan, and soccer is something I am very passionate about. I am involved with six intramural sports teams here at UNH, most of them being soccer, but I also love playing hockey, volleyball, swimming, surfing, snowboarding, basically any sport. I am also in a couple of clubs at UNH including Cru (Crusaders for Christ), AIV (Athletes Intervarsity), and SOTA (Student Occupational Therapy Association). I’m a weird, crazy, happy girl from the west coast and I had an amazing PrOVES experience. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer, and I cannot wait to meet you!

Hi guys! My name is Emily Lewin, and I am so excited for PrOVES this year! I'm from the small town of East Greenwich, Rhode Island. I am going to be a Junior this coming year, and I transferred into the nursing program here at UNH. I love working with people, especially kids, and I can't wait to get started with this program. In my spare time, I love working out, being outside, swimming, and hanging out with my family and friends. I'm involved in lots of clubs here at school, and during the summer, I work as a lifeguard, and I babysit! SO pumped to meet all of you soon, and I hope everyone enjoys a lovely, relaxing summer!

Corey Lim

Hey everyone! Do you like puns, cats, hiking, and ice-breakers? Be my friend! I’m Corey, an Environmental Conservation and Sustainability major (yes, I’ve been known to hug a few trees). I’m going to be a senior this year, and I’m hoping to make my last PrOVES week the best one yet. I love being involved on campus, participating in orgs such as June Orientation, Oxfam, the Waysmeet Student Association, SEAC's Solarfest, and Sigma Alpha. I studied abroad in New Zealand last fall and even though it was the best experience of my life, there’s nothing I missed more being at UNH in the beautiful fall with my PrOVES family. PrOVES is one of my favorite times of the year and it really makes transitioning into school so much easier by providing guidance, service, and most importantly a lot of laughs and new friends! I can’t wait to meet all you and help make your first week at UNH one to remember!
