Name: Annie Cadwell
Hi! I’m Annie. I am a criminal Justice major and a Political Science minor here at UWEC. I am currently a sophomore, and this is my first semester on SWAT, and it has been an amazing experience. Being involved on campus is what has made my college experience thus far great, and is something I highly recommend. I am a down-to-earth girl who takes great pride in my relationships with family and friends and also to take care of myself and my health. When I’m not roaming around campus, you can usually find me out and about on the trails and in the parks around Eau Claire!
Name: Klaira Lerma
Hello! My name is Klaira and I am currently a junior at UWEC. I am pursuing a major in Psychology and a topical minor in Biopsychosocial Health and Wellness. After graduating from UWEC, I plan on attending graduate school for Health Psychology with an emphasis in Health Promotion. My academic, professional, and personal interest is of health and wellness. This is my second year working for SWATeam and my favorite health topics to advocate for are nutrition, women’s health, and stress management. When I’m not on campus promoting health for Student Health Service you can usually find me studying in the Psychology department, working or hanging out at Racy’s/The Nucleus, working on my own wellness at the YMCA, or floating down the river!

Hello! My name is Seama. I am an International Business and Latin American Studies double major and a Japanese minor. I am a sophomore and this is my third semester working for the SWATeam. I am interested in studying languages and all aspects of health! In my free time I hang out with friends, read and cook. I have been a vegetarian for eight years, but recently became a pescatarian. My future goals are to learn five languages by the time I am 30 years old, move to Japan, and continually work on my own wellness, in addition to educating peers on their wellness!

Name: Shelby Brown
Hi, I’m Shelby! I am currently a sophomore on campus and I am studying Kinesiology in hopes of becoming a Physical Therapist. This is my second year on the SWATeam and I truly love it. My passion for wellness is constantly growing, especially in the areas of sexual health and stress. Not only do I educate my peers about wellness topics, but I also work the front desk of Student Health Service three days a week and work as a CNA at Oakwood Hills Retirement Home. I have a very busy life, but I always make time for my friends and family. In my free time, I like to spend time outside riding my bike, playing soccer, and rollerblading. I also enjoy watching movies, coloring, and shopping.
