Wellness Coaches

Kate M

Wellness Coach

My name is Kate, and I am a graduate student in the Master of Social Work Program. I am excited to be a Wellness Coaching intern because I enjoy helping others when they are struggling and need someone to listen. I also want to help students reach their health and lifestyle goals! I played soccer at SCSU for four years during my undergrad and I am a part of the Delta Zeta Sorority. In my free time I enjoy hiking, bike riding, reading, traveling, and spending time with friends and family! 

Erick W

Wellness Coach

My name is Erick, and I am a graduate student in the Master of Social Work program at St. Cloud State University. I decided to become a Wellness Coach because I believe that people are the experts on their own lives, and, as someone with a strong anti-authoritarian streak, fully embrace the style of counselling that we do, which encourages people to make their own decisions and assert their rights to their own self-determination. I enjoy loud guitars, drums, and sleep. 

Zach S

Wellness Coach

My name is Zach, and I’m a graduate student at St. Cloud State University, pursuing a Masters degree in Social Work. I was interested in becoming a Wellness Coach to work with my fellow peers and empower others to achieve goals they set for themselves. Some hobbies I have include hiking, hunting, fishing, woodworking, and almost any sport. 

Cayden T

Wellness Coach

My name is Cayden Thao. I’m a currently a Graduate Student in the Master’s Program for Teaching ESL. I decided to join the team for Wellness Coaching because of my innate desire to help others achieve their goal. I have coached football, tutored and mentored teenagers, as well as supervised children while working or volunteering across youth groups and organizations. Today, I sspend my leisure time by writing, playing board/card/video games with my roommates, watching and discussing movies, and smothering my cat with affection.  

Nena V

Wellness Coach

My name is Nena and I am a Doctoral Student in the Educational Leadership and Administration Program. I am not originally from Minnesota but my favorite thing about being here are the people; especially people at St. Cloud State University. All the warmth, kindness and care have made it easier to be away from my family. I do however miss my dog (Sir Jeffrey Jeffrey) which my numerous house plants simply can't replace! I am proud to be a Husky, and to make SCSU even more awesome (and it's already pretty amazing!). I love being a Wellness Coach because It’s really rewarding to meet so many awesome people and to help them have the best possible experience while they’re here at SCSU.
