Irene Gerrish

Irene is the web manager of this project. Pursuing a bachelor of arts degree in both Economics and Political Science, Irene is politically involved both within Hope’s campus and in Western Michigan. She holds a position on the executive board of the Klooster Center for Excellence in Writing and conducts research in public policy for the Political Science department. Irene spends her free time playing the viola (her instrument of choice) in various ensembles, frequenting pretentious coffee shops, and playing with any and all dogs.

Olivia is a sophomore at Hope College studying Music, Theatre, and Dance as a composite major. She is the project manager for this team. Olivia is a proud member of the Sigma Iota Beta sorority, and enjoys participating in Dance Marathon and Relay for Life at Hope College through this organization. She works for the Hope College Theatre Department’s Publicity and Marketing Team, as well as the Detroit-based entertainment company Fairytale Entertainment as a Professional Princess. Olivia loves to work on new and devised theatre. Her current theatrical projects include a devised piece opening in April, writing her own play, and auditioning for regional and summer stock companies.


Sarah Lundy

A sophomore studying both French and History at Hope College, Sarah is the content manager for this project. She enjoys sharing her interests in languages and the past, though she is far from fluent in French or well-versed in world history. Sarah is also a teacher’s assistant for Hope College’s French department, a writing assistant at the Klooster Center for Excellence in Writing, and a bible study leader for Hope College Campus Ministries. Outside of class and other campus responsibilities, she loves drinking coffee, playing the viola, and watching suspenseful, historical dramas on television.
