Isabella Webb, Academic Advisor
I was born and raised in Australia and always knew I wanted to travel and see the world. I began my journey by studying for my undergraduate degree in both Hawaii and North Carolina. After graduating I worked with the Education Channel in Florida. I attended Graduate School first in Italy and then New York. I lived in Italy for two years and while there I worked with American Students and led them on educational tours from Rome to Paris to London. After continuing my journey to the Pacific Northwest I worked with international students at Tacoma Community College and now call the University of Washington home working with undergraduate academic advising as an academic counselor. My favorite places to visit are Denmark, Scotland, and France. My motto? A smile is worth a thousand words.
Willow Raeburn, Pack Advisor
I’m a junior majoring in Ethnic, Gender, and Labor Studies with a minor in American Indian Studies. I also have two on-campus jobs as a Pack Advisor and as a Writing Tutor in the TLC. At the risk of sounding cheesy, working with and for my fellow students is something I look forward to every day! I want to make sure everyone here at UWT has the skills they need to thrive in college and beyond. Feel free to say hello if you see me around (and please show me pictures of your pets if you have any)!
Vincent Da, ASUWT President
I am a Junior at University of Washington Tacoma majoring in Healthcare Leadership with a minor in Business Administration. Even though, the South Puget Sound is my home, I grew up as a military brat and lived in places around the world such as Germany, Virginia, Tennessee, and Washington. I worked as a Pack Advisor for Student Transition Programs, where I helped new students adjust to the campus. I also worked as a Pantry Student Assistant for the Center for Equity & Inclusion, helping to provide food resources to students to fuel their success. Not only did I serve as an Undeclared (Pre-major) Student Senator for Associated Students of University of Washington (ASUWT), I am currently the UW Tacoma's 2019 - 2020 Student Body President. I look forward to enjoying and creating new experiences for the next two years at Tacoma!
Derrick Derricks, Pack Advisor
What’s good dawgs. My name is Derrick Derricks and I am going into my third year here at UWT, I have an intended major of Biomedical Sciences and I use he/him pronouns. I am a huge ping pong enthusiast, so much that last year me and a few other pack advisors started a ping pong club here on campus and I’m pleased to say it was a blast so come through this year. Most people can’t tell when they talk to me but I wasn’t born in the United States I was actually born in the Ivory Coast in western Africa but I grew up in the PNW for the majority of my life and this has become my home. I love to learn new things wherever I can, and I love to make new friends even more. I believe that every year has the potential to be a great one, so let's make this year the best one yet.
Moosa Naushab, Student Advising Mentor
Hello all, my name is Moosa Naushab. I also go by “Moose”. I am currently a senior majoring in Mathematics and minoring in Applied Computing and Business. This will be my fourth year at UWT and my third year working for University Academic Advising. When I am not at work or in class, I can be found at Court 17 or at the Ping Pong table at University Y (YMCA). I am also the secretary of the Ping Pong Club and quite frankly, my skill at table tennis is unmatched. Recently, I started a Digital Marketing Internship at the University Y as well and it is my job to keep their social media up to date with all the events and activities. Overall, for me, UWT is not only a place where I go to study, it is my home, it is where I grow.
