KathrAnn Lee
PRESIDENT

Hello there! I’m KathrAnn Lee, your MSP President for the next year. I am so excited to get started and work with my presidency to make this next year great! I got my Bachelors in Advertising and Public Relations, but I am more drawn to analytics and hope to maybe branch off that way in the future. I have a HUGE love for crafting, probably why I still refuse to give up my part-time “job” working at a craft store.

It’s not work if you love it right? My husband, Tyler, will be a second year and we have two kiddos, Jackson (almost 4) and BryliAnn

(3 months). We absolutely love it here in

St. George, which is a big change from the small town in Nebraska I grew up in. I have always loved being involved and doing get togethers for the big stuff and the little stuff. I hope to put all my quirky skills to good use and help make MSP a great resource for all of the significant others at RVU.

 Hi, I’m Mariana Adamson! I am thrilled to be your 2022-2023 Vice President! I am a full time realtor and work for Remax!

Heidi Pace
SECRETARY

My name is Heidi Pace and I am excited to be part of your MSP presidency as Secretary!

My husband is starting his first year here and we both just graduated in engineering from USU. I was born in Oregon and grew up in Weiser, ID. I love reading, board games, running, hiking, vacationing, and making friends! And not having to go to school anymore! We are also expecting our first baby towards the end of the year! I am always down for a slot canyon adventure, or to go to Zion, which is the BEST park. I can’t wait for all the fun activities and memories that are awaiting this coming year!

Helen Udy
ACTIVITIES CHAIR

Hi! I’m Helen Udy and I’m so excited to be part of the MSP presidency as the Activities Chair this year! My husband is just finishing up his 1st year and we have loved being here in St. George. I was born and raised in Las Vegas and my husband grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho. We met in the windy and cold town of Rexburg, Idaho while finishing up our undergrads, so being the desert rat that I am, I’m happy to be back in the heat! I got my bachelors in Public Health and am very passionate about all things health related. My husband and I just had a baby girl named Sophie in March so I get to spend my days hanging out with her! I love crafting, working out, going out to lunch, hanging out with friends and family, and am a big lover of all things Broadway. I can’t wait to get to know

you all!

Larissa Clason
TREASURER

I’m Larissa Clason and I’m ecstatic to be your MSP Treasurer this year! I work full time doing accounting and have been blessed to be in a career I love that has given me the knowledge to succeed within my MSP position. My husband, Josh, is going into his last year at medical school and we have loved this journey. We have two big dogs and a cat and are bordering on those ‘crazy animal people’ but wouldn’t have it any other way. I love hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding and almost anything else that involves the outdoors. If you want insider information on some of the best secret spots around here hit me up!

I absolutely love St George and would be happy to show anyone around! I can’t wait to meet you all and help you to have the best medical school/MSBS experience you can! Cheers to this next big adventure in our lives!

Hey MSP fam! I’m Jess Green, your social media coordinator this year! I have a Graphic Design background and absolutely love what

I do, so I’m thrilled to put my passion into this community! My husband Cameron is going into his third year at RVU. We have loved living in St George and meeting so many lifelong friends. We have 2 boys and a pup; Kian (4.5) Ezden (2 months) and a spunky Morkiepoo named Hazel (more commonly known as Zel or Zelli). I’m a huge fan of audiobooks, DIYs, thrifting, flipping furniture, singing/playing my guitar, and enjoying the outdoors! I’m a pretty hardcore introvert, but I’m so excited to be a support in this med school journey! This is going to be an awesome year!
