Meet the 2023 Dorm@Lucky Res Life Staff!
Our 2023-24 residence life team will lead this year’s three-part program that will support your education and academic needs, teach you new life skills, and provide plenty of fun experiences. Here’s an introduction to our team:
Brissa Donnelly, Residence Life Director (RD)
My name is Brissa, and I am so excited to be your Resident Director this year! I am a senior at UW-Madison studying nursing.
To share a little bit about myself, I am an absolute coffee enthusiast, and you will most likely catch me with some sort of caffeinated drink throughout the day! My favorite spots in Madison are Memorial Union to catch a free concert outside, Picnic Point, Lakeshore path, and the restaurant Canteen to treat myself to some awesome tacos after a long day.
Typically, you will find me either in my apartment, getting fresh air outside, or trying a new coffee shop around town. Do not hesitate to reach out to me! You can contact me via Discord, GroupMe, send me an email, or knock on my door. I am here to help always. I look forward to meeting every one of you very soon. Cheers to a great year together!
Hali Jama, Resident Assistant (RA)
I am thrilled to introduce myself as your Resident Advisor (RA) for this academic year! My name is Hali Jama, and I am currently a junior pursuing my passion in Marketing, International Business, and Developmental Economics.
To share a bit more about myself, I’m from Eden Prairie, Minnesota and when I’m not engrossed in my studies, you’ll often find me working out, immersing myself in a good book, exploring new boba and coffee spots, or simply appreciating the beauty of nature. I find these activities incredibly enriching and would love to share these experiences with you whenever you’re up for it.
I’m a firm believer in the uniqueness each individual brings to a community, and I am truly excited about getting to know each one of you on a more personal level.
Please feel free to reach out to me anytime via email, text, or even a good old-fashioned knock on my door. I am here to help make your experience in our residence as positive as possible. Here’s to an incredible year filled with new friendships, learning experiences, and personal growth!
Bella Power, Resident Assistant (RA)
Hello! My name is Bella, and I’m so excited to start the school year with you all. Outside of loving school and learning (I’m weird. I know.) You’ll often find me at the gym, studying or chilling at Colectivo, or in my apartment watching Friends. I also love reading and organizing, so if you need any recommendations or help, let me know. I often cook and bake, so if you ever smell something delicious, please stop by (all gluten-free because I have celiac).
My goal as a resident advisor is to be a point of contact and reliance other than a friend or professional. Whether that means ranting about an assignment that’s stressing you out, helping you organizes your schedule better, or sharing a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies with you. I hope the rest of your summer goes well, and I will see you soon!
Morgan Mayorga, Resident Assistant (RA)
Hi! My name is Morgan and I am so excited to be one of your RA’s this year. I am from San Diego, California and a rising junior majoring in Nutrition and Dietetics.
Currently, I work for the UW Athletic Department as a Performance Nutrition Student Assistant. In my free time, I love to workout at the Nick, go for walks on the lakeshore path, and hangout at the dock. I am so excited to get to know all of you and cannot wait to meet everyone!
Monet Wagner, Resident Assistant (RA)
Hi! My name is Monet (They/Them) and I am a senior here at UW double majoring in Global Health and Genetics/Genomics. I am part of a lab group that does research on crop breeding and agriculture!
I enjoy reading, photography, and journaling. I also collect houseplants and have two cats! I’m excited to get to know you all this year!
