Tsylyn Jacobs, Vice President

Major: Associates Degree of Nursing
Tsylyn has always dreamed of becoming a nurse like her mother, godmother and aunts. After high school, she served in the Louisiana Army National Guard for 6 years. Before deciding to pursue a nursing career, she had success managing teams in banking and finance for over 10 years. However, after two layoffs in the past 5 years, Tsylyn realized it was time to make her true desires a reality. She has true compassion for others and believes that helping those in need is her calling. This led her to the Lone Star College Kingwood, Associate Degree Nursing Program. Tsylyn is married to an amazing husband who also serves the community. Together, they have a daughter. After graduating, Tsylyn plans to continue her education towards a MSN. During her first semester, Tsylyn joined SNA to be part of a group with similar career goals. This meant connecting with those who would understand the daily challenges of being a nursing student. Tsylyn believes having additional support through SNA, while in the nursing program will aid in her being successful. Her goals as an officer are to increase SNA membership through helping others understand the good works and benefits of this organization. During her spare time, Tsylyn enjoys spending time with her family, going to the movies, reading and traveling. Although many areas of nursing interest her, Tsylyn would like to work in an emergency department.


Samantha Miller, Secretary

Samantha Miller, Secretary

Major: Associates Degree of Nursing
Samantha is currently in her second semester of the nursing program. She holds Bachelor of Science degree from Sam Houston State, in Psychology. It was after graduating with this degree and going out into the workforce that she realized not only did she want to help those in her community mentally heal but physically as well. Thus began her journey into nursing school. Samantha is married to a wonderful husband of 11 years who supports her in all of her dreams and ambitions, including this major career change. They have two children, a six year old German Shepherd named Daisy and a 1 year old, half cat/half dog they rescued, named Penelope. They plan on adding human children to the mix after Samantha finishes nursing school. Samantha decided to join SNA the moment the preceding officers came to speak to her class during Steps For Success. After serving as a member for her first semester she decided to run for office and was elected Secretary. She plans to hold this position until pinning in August of 2017. Once nursing school is complete, Samantha plans on joining the workforce in a graduate nurse residency program at a local hospital. Her heart lies with all things babies, so she aspires to start as a L&D nurse and progress thru schooling to become a practicing Certified Nurse Midwife. Samantha strongly believes everyone has a duty to care for his or her fellow man. If we can put aside the petty differences that divide us we can all work together to make this world a place we want our children and grandchildren to grow up in.
