Hello! My name is Eleanor Fortner-Buczala, I am a duel major of microbiology and molecular genetics with a chemistry minor. Over the past year I have served as the Sergeant-at-Arms for Alpha Zeta and a senator for the Student Government Association. I have also been involved in research for a microbiology lab and an organic synthesis lab.My goal for Alpha Zeta would to be to create a solid infrastructure to keep members accountable that will be able to continue on after my graduation.
Censor, Ellie Beltran
I am a sophomore Animal Science major on the pre-veterinary track. Before coming to UVM, I took a gap year where I volunteered for six months in South Africa and Guatemala working closely with people, animals, and communities. That experience sparked my passion for community volunteering and service learning. In the future, I hope to further connect my love for animals and passion for helping others by using the knowledge I gain at UVM to improve the world for both people and animals. When Iím not immersed in animal-related activities, I enjoy knitting and riding my motorcycle.

My name is Jennifer Dickinson and I am an Animal Science major at the University of Vermont on the Pre-Veterinary tract in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. After graduating from UVM, I hope to further pursue my life-long passion for animals by going to veterinary school and eventually becoming a veterinarian. Through 4-H, I was able to explore dairy science, equine science, plant and soil science, environmental stewardship, and many other subjects which further developed my passion for animals and farming. I work as an assistant veterinary technician at the Milton Veterinary Hospital in Milton, Vermont and at a small goat dairy in Cambridge, Vermont. In my free time I enjoy horseback riding, hunting, fishing, and anything outdoors.
My name is Katarina Fielding and I am a rising junior animal science major with a Pre-Veterinary Concentration and double minors in Italian and Zoology. I have a passion for exotic and zoo animals and hope that my academic career here at UVM will help me achieve my dream of attending veterinary school, in hopes of pursuing my goal to become a zoo veterinarian. An Alpha Zeta officer position would be a great opportunity for me to build up a solid resume and use my leadership skills in a productive setting. Here at UVM, I am currently an RA and help to supervise 40 residents as well as making programs which help to engage as many residents as possible. I am also a part of the Miss Vermont scholarship Organization and my community service platform is centered around animal conservation.

I have been having an amazing experience abroad, though I am looking forward to spending my first summer in Burlington and for the start of my senior year! I study Nutrition and Food Science, and am particularly interested in holistic/alternative medicine. I would love to become more involved in the planning and organizing of more Alpha Zeta events.I very much look forward to seeing what our chapter can accomplish as a team this coming year within the UVM and Burlington communities.
My name is Allie Pankoff, and I identify with she/her pronouns. My major is Natural Resources Planning in the Rubenstein School and I plan on minoring in Ecological Agriculture through CALS. I am passionate about agroecology, environmental justice, sustainable food systems, adventuring, and cooking! Down the road, I see myself working closely with famers to provide communities with healthy and affordable food and I hope that experiences and connections I make in Alpha Zeta will help me achieve this goal. Looking forward to volunteering with you all!
