Sr Susan Sisko, Rector
Lindsay Pester, Assistant Rector
Hello! My name is Lindsay and I'm from Northwest Ohio. I majored in Math and Accounting at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. I was an RA for two years while at Capital, and I was an AR in Cavanaugh last year. Currently, I'm in my third year of law school. My hobbies include finding, buying, and drinking coffee. I'm a great listener, so always feel free to drop by my room!
Stephanie Bruns, Assistant Rector
Hello Badin! My name is Stephanie (feel free to call me Steph) and I am so excited to join the Badin community! I attended Notre Dame for undergrad and liked it so much I decided to stick around for law school! I will be a second year law student this year and I am really looking forward to moving back on campus and getting to know all of you!
A few facts about me: I'm originally from Indianapolis, Indiana and I have two younger brothers as well as a dog named Kona. While I was an undergrad at ND, I majored in Political Science with minors in Anthropology and Education, Schooling & Society. I studied abroad in Santiago, Chile the fall of my junior year and taught English in Costa Rica the summer before my senior year. I have an extensive nail polish collection that I love to share and I tend to bake when I am stressed, so feel free to stop by any time!
Chau-Ly Phan (1st Floor)
Chau-Ly Phan is an Information Technology Management major in the Mendoza College of Business. She was born and raised in Minnesota (which can be heard when she says Minnesota), but Badin has been her home her entire time at Notre Dame. The Badin girls, the community, and the Hope Initiative (Badin's charity) are a few of the reasons she loves Badin.
Emily Laurent (2 Quad)
Hi Everyone! I'm Emily Laurent, a senior SCPP major, and I am the RA in 2-Quad. Though I lived in McGlinn for two years, this is my second year in Badin and I am so happy to be a Bullfrog! I am from Neenah, Wisconsin and, yes, I love the Packers. I come from a large family with 6 sisters and a brother so I'm always in the mood for company and I love to chat! I studied abroad in London during my junior year and I love to share those stories with anyone who will listen! During the fall, I am part of the Notre Dame Women's Boxing Club and I love running all year around our beautiful campus. Also, I love to eat, make, and look at food so if you've ever got a craving for something, let me know!
Iciar Ocariz-Elsen (2 Lake)
Hey Bullfrogs! My name is Iciar Ocariz and I will be the RA for 2 Lake this upcoming year. I am an Arabic and Theology major hailing from a tiny town in northern Wisconsin called Spooner. I am Vice-President of Notre Dame's Running Club, as well as a member of the Notre Dame Liturgical Choir, the Nordic Ski Club, and Children of Mary. My hobbies include running, skiing, ping-pong, singing, reading, writing, cooking, gardening, and just being outside. I love Badin and hope that you will too!
Calla Chang (3rd Floor)
Aloha! I'm a fifth-year architecture student from Honolulu, Hawaii. I'm also very excited to be Badin's 3rd Floor RA! I enjoy knitting, reading, pasta, and 30-second dance parties. If you ever want to warm up with a cup of tea, try some Hawaiian-style Spam musubi, or just chat, come on by!
Abby Bartels (4th Floor)
Hi! I am Abby Bartels, and I am thrilled to be the 4th Floor RA for the academic year 2015-2016! I am a senior majoring in Political Science and minoring in Theology and Gender Studies. In addition to involving myself in the beautiful community of Badin, I am also a part of the Notre Dame Parliamentary Debate Team, the Notre Dame Writing Center, and the Ukuleles of ND. My hobbies include drinking coffee or tea, knitting, playing music, and reading, all of which I learned to do inside during the frigid winters in my home state of Minnesota. If you ever want a warm drink, a toasty scarf, a happy tune, or a cozy book, I'm your girl!
