Meet the VISION Staff

Becca Timmermans, Program Coordinator Becca T.

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Where I call home: Ypsilanti, although, I did most of my growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Major/Class Standing:  My undergraduate degree is in social work (and a gender studies minor) and I have a master's in social work degree with a focus in community organizing and children, youth and families.

Why VISION: I have been the coordinator for the VISION Volunteer Center since November 2014 and I love this work. It is such an honor to work with both students and communities. Our students have such wonderful things to offer the community and the community has such wonderful things to offer our students. As we engage in the community we must be having conversations about listening to the community, diversity, privilege, -isms, social justice, etc. Being a part of diversity and community involvement helps us to have the tools, language, and resources to have those conversations within the work of community engagement. Did I mention that we have amazing students and an amazing community? We have amazing students and an amazing community.


 

Jaleah White, VISION Volunteer Center Graduate Assistant jaleah

Pronouns:  she/her/hers

Where I call home:  Anywhere I am with my mom, dad, and sister (truly we could be anywhere)

Major/Class Standing: Accounting, Graduate Student

Why VISION:  I have always enjoyed doing service, and originally it was for selfish reasons. But when I found VISION I just couldn't leave. Where else would I go to become the most educated and prepared social justice warrior? VISION has developed me into an active citizen that is committed to equity in society and I couldn't imagine being anyone or anywhere else.


 

Tyler Dotson, ASB Coordinator tyler

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Where I call home: Cleveland, OH

Major/Class Standing: Sociology and Philosophy, Senior

Why VISION: I chose VISION because I wanted to play a key role in the volunteer opportunities that take place on and off campus and I also love being involved with the community I am in. Working in VISION has allowed me to travel far and wide across and out of the country, learn about various social issues, and meet some amazing people along the way. 


 

Daisha Domnic, Major Projects Coordinator

Pronouns: She/Her

Where I call home:    I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio but I have called Columbus home for the past 6 years

Major/Class standing:  Business Management/Junior

Why VISION:  I first became involved with the VISION Volunteer Center as a Site Leader for Alternative Spring Break last year. Through this experience, I learned not only social justice issues individuals are facing across the nation, but also how I can be apart of the solution. Now, working in the center, I am able to apply all of those things I learned on my ASB trip here on campus and in the Washtenaw community area.
