Hello! I’m Elizabeth Parker and I’m the 1st Vice President of Service for the Spring 2021 semester. I’m a junior health science major with a minor in Spanish. After undergrad, I plan to attend grad school in hopes to become a physical therapist. APO has given me so much and truly made Clemson my home away from home.

Hello! My name is Jake, and I am absolutely elated to be your 3rd VP this semester! A fun fact about me is that I was born and raised in the Yukon Territories by an unsentimental, unloving snowman and his polar bear wife named Shelly. Upon my graduation at Northwoods High, I walked intercontinentally until I happened to meet the benevolent Jim Clements in the vast cornfields of Iowa, who kindly offered me a spot at Clemson. Here, you can find me brewing coffee at your local Douthit Hills Starbucks, beating Christian Zimmerman at Smash Bros, or playing with my thumbs and exclusively listening to Vampire Weekend. Gooo Tigers!
