Ashley Pirih, President

Major: Associates Degree of Nursing

Ashley always knew she wanted to work in health care. The ultimate reason why she chose nursing is because she is passionate about helping people in their greatest time of need. Ashley began her journey as a student nurse at Lone Star College Kingwood in January 2016. She became an active member of the Student Nurses’ Association in her second semester, which led to being elected as the Vice President in her third semester. Now in her fourth and final semester of the RN program, Ashley has been elected as the President of SNA. This semester she hopes to lead SNA and its members further into community service by working with local community organizations, hosting food drives, volunteering to feed the community post-Hurricane Harvey, spending time with assisted living residents, among other local service opportunities. She is also a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and will be pursuing the Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society in the coming weeks.

Ashley is married and has an eight-year old daughter. She credits her family and parents for her success in nursing school. After Ashley graduates in December 2017, she plans to enter a graduate nurse residency program at a local hospital. Ashley’s field of interest lies in adult ICU as well as emergency/trauma nursing.

Sarah Dulin, Treasurer

Sarah Dulin, Treasurer

Major: Associates Degree of Nursing

Sarah wants to bring babies into the world. She believes that the people who assist mothers with childbirth -- nurses, midwives, doulas and doctors -- can make these experiences inspiring, empowering and life-changing. It all started with a surprise home birth in 2006 with child #2, in which she gave birth in the bathroom of her Houston home with her husband assisting. On that day, Sarah decided that she would go into nursing, and, ultimately, into midwifery. She enrolled in Lone Star College's nursing program at the beginning of 2017. A closet accountant with the heart of a volunteer, she is excited to take on the role of treasurer for the SNA. When not studying or working on SNA events, she enjoys time with family, running and good food.
