Noah Clark | Chapter President

Hello, my name is Noah! I am currently in my junior year pursuing a Human Resource Management/Management & Leadership double major. PSU HRMA has given me an immense amount of valuable knowledge regarding various industries and numerous opportunities to network with a wide variety of HR professionals. This organization has helped me figure out what areas of HR interest me the most and allowed me to become a more forward-thinking future business professional. When I am not leading PSU HRMA and working on school assignments, I exercise, study film history, and spend time with my family.

Hello! My name is Kaylee Brunette. I am a junior at Portland State University, pursuing a double major in Human Resource Management and Leadership/Management. This year I serve as the Vice President of Programs and Marketing, and our team is eager to meet you! As a PSU HRMA member, I am passionate about creating a space for students where we can come together in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. If I happen to not be on campus, one may find me skiing on Mt. Hood, testing vegan recipes, or backpacking around the beautiful state of Oregon. If you are interested in exploring a career in human resources, keep an eye out for our social media pages where we post upcoming guest speakers, community socials, and general meetings!

Hello, my name is Jacob! I am the Director of Information Systems for PSU HRMA. I am currently in my junior year and pursuing a double major in Human Resource Management/Management and Leadership. I am a transfer student this year and joining PSU HRMA was suggested to me by my advisor. PSU HRMA is a great way to meet like minded students that are in their journeys to becoming business professionals. Human Resource Management is a career path with high levels of job satisfaction and PSU HRMA is a wonderful opportunity to introduce yourself into the HRM world. Outside of school I enjoy hiking, bouldering, rock climbing, riding my bike, and reading. I also love going to the theaters whenever I have a free afternoon.
