Secretary

Katalina Vang

Hi all! I’m Katalina, CAB’s Secretary. I’m a 4th-year Political Science with an emphasis in American Politics and a minor in Poverty, Inequality, and Social Justice. I love volunteering and CAB has opened up opportunities for me to meet new people and try new things! I’ve been working out to stray away from the “quarran-ten” and trying new methods to keep my mental health sane. 🙂 Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about CAB or anything, email me at as-cabsecretary@ucsb.edu

FLP Co-Coordinators

anastasia dardenne

Hello! My name is Anastassia Dardenne and I’m a second year Bio major with a minor in Religious Studies. I’m super excited to be this year’s CAB FLP Co-Coordinator with Jana! I love spending time with kids, and especially teaching them new skills and instilling a love for learning in them! I am really passionate about education and think that a good education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of age. In my free time, I love to brag about how early I wake up (mainly because it’s so rare) and send long descriptive texts of what I’m eating and cooking to my family and friends. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you are interested in FLP or just want to chat! Despite a virtual (and kind of bleak) start to the year, I have lots of ideas for FLP this year and am always in need of volunteers to realize these ideas!

Alternative Breaks Co-coordinator

Gina Rue

Hello! I’m Gina, your Alternative Breaks Co-Coordinator. I am a 4th year Philosophy major studying Ethics and Public Policy and this will be my last year working with CAB. I first got involved with CAB last year when I participated in the Winter 2019 Alt Breaks trip to San Antonio, Texas to serve their immigrant population. This rewarding experience motivated me to run for Alt Breaks Coordinator myself so that I can host these amazing opportunities for other students. Even though traveling will be limited this academic year in light of COVID, my co-coordinator and I have plans that will still facilitate connections between distant communities and allow students to serve their local community. Outside of CAB, you can find me thrifting, ballroom dancing, or falling off my longboard in IV. If you have any questions, please email me at as-cabalternativebreaks@ucsb.edu. Stay safe, stay home, stay hopeful.

Animal Coordinator

Hi Cabbies! My name is Katherine Wang, and I am a third year Economics and Accounting major.

Hi y’all! My name is Katie Lau and I am the Environmental Coordinator for CAB’s 2020-2021 Leaderboard. I am so excited to be providing environmental volunteer opportunities for you all this year! Despite the challenges in our way currently, I am hoping to find a way to safely give back to the community and the Earth this year! 😀 Some things about me are that I am a second-year Earth Science major from Fairfax, Virginia, and I love painting, running, hiking, and spending time with friends (throwback to when that was possible).
