Kaitlyn is in her third year as an Accounting major at the University of Alberta. After seeing past delegates attend the NEW conference, Kaitlyn was inspired by the desire to see women break barriers and reach their full potential. As NEW and Kaitlyn hold the same values, Kaitlyn is excited to be part of the NEW executive team as an external director.

This year Kaitlyn hopes to create a memorable experience for all attending and for the delegates to meet with different professionals and feel empowered to pursue any future goals they set out.

Kaitlyn also values quality time with her friends, family and two French Bulldogs. She loves to explore the outdoors whether that’s going on runs, hikes, or finding different cafes in Edmonton. Kaitlyn is looking forward to the NEW Conference and being there to support and uplift the women around her.

Hannah is in her third year at the University of Alberta School of Business and is pursuing a major in marketing. She wanted to be more involved in campus life in the upcoming year and wanted to join NEW because of their belief in uplifting women in pursuing their goals. She had heard about NEW from some peers who had attended the conference in past years and appreciated the sense of community that NEW has created for past delegates and members. 


In her personal time, Hannah enjoys dancing, spending time outside with friends and family, reading, and traveling (especially to the beach)! Hannah is very excited about the opportunity to get to know some of the future leaders in all different industries.
