    “Hi, I am Hannah Petersen and I am so honored to be the RHA President this year. I come from a small rural town in Minnesota and never dreamed of being where I am today so I can say without a doubt I believe in anything being possible when you put your mind to it. This year I will be graduating and entering the working world where I hope to find a job in either Dublin, Ireland or London, England where I will climb the cooperate ladder and become a Creative Director. So stop by the RHA office anytime, I’ll love seeing a new face and getting to know you.”

    Hey! I'm Sarah, and I'm a sophomore this year at NAU! I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. I came to NAU for a change of scenery, and I absolutely love it here! My whole life I have dreamed of becoming a teacher, and now I'm currently an education major. I also love adventures, and I hope to one day travel the world. I am super excited to be serving as your NCC this year! RHA has opened so many doors for me, and I cannot wait to see how it helps other people as well. My goal this year to be a part of the change that RHA can bring, and to make NAU a better place for everyone!

Hey Jacks! I am so excited to be joining the NAU team this year. I am the Coordinator for Staff & Community Development for Housing & Residence Life, and the RHA Advisor. RHA is what got me involved when I was in college and led me to get my Master’s degree and work for universities full time. My favorite thing about RHA has to be the student leadership conferences which are a lot of fun and getting to see amazing students do amazing things each year. When I’m not advising the awesome executives I spend time with my cat Sawyer Amadeus, doing things outdoors and trying out all of the coffee shops in Flagstaff.
