Jocelyn Parra

Premedical Division Region 9 Director

I have been involved with AMWA for about 3 years now. I am the current President and founder of the CBU AMWA Chapter (3 years). I have previously held 2 national positions, that being Treasurer and Social Media Chair. I have become more and more involved with AMWA these past 2 years. I truly believe in the mission statement and vision that AMWA holds, therefore being involved nationally and locally is really important to me. Being Social Media Chair this past year helped me learn that I love transmitting and sharing with others what AMWA has to offer. I feel that with my combined experience with AMWA both locally and nationally, I have attained the skills necessary to be a successful Regional Director. I have many ideas and want to be able to share them with the entire region, ultimately bringing them together. As Region 9 Director, I will also have the opportunity to help start new branches. Being that I have been through this process before and started my branch from the very bottom; eventually having it become a successful branch, I want to be able to guide other leaders to do the same.
