Ithaca College Student Occupational Therapy Organization (ICSOTA)
Meet the Executive Board!
President: Jen Koelle email me!
Hi everyone! I’m a junior from Philadelphia, and I currently serve as the ICSOTA
President. I, as well as the Vice President, am in charge of the Promotion and Newsletter
Committees. Last year I served as one of the club’s historians. In the past, I have
volunteered in both the Adult and Pediatric clinics on campus and have also been a member of
Ages. I am a member of the Oracle Honor Society, and I currently TA for the Computers and
Information Technology classes. My favorite ICSOTA event was last year’s Relay for Life
because I love any excuse to dress up like Superman, bounce around a track, and wear a body sock!
My favorite OT class was Applied Occupations because I enjoyed learning about the theories I will use
Vice President: Laura Kucsan email me!
Hello there! My name is Laura Kucsan, and I am a sophomore at Ithaca. I am currently the Vice
President of ICSOTA, and last year I was one of the two Historians. This year I am in charge of
the Promotion and Newsletter Committees, along with the ICSOTA President Jen Koelle. I am
involved in the Adult Clinic on campus as well as a member of the IC Swim Team. My favorite OT
class so far has been working in the OT Clinic; it’s interesting, hands-on, and fun! And my
favorite ICSOTA event has to be the Pot Lucks! Good food, lots of chatting, socializing, and
relaxing with friends….doesn’t get much better than that!

Historian: Amanda Rafel email
I am Amanda Rafel, and I am a junior. I am the club’s Historian, and I am in charge of
organizing ICSOTA’s Relay for Life team. I also aid in running some of our other

Circle K, Parle Italiano (Italian Club), Peer Volunteer Corporation, Red Cross, and Soleful

food to be devoured by you and your closest OT friends in mere minutes?
Historian: Sarah Burke email
I am Sarah Burke, and I am a junior OT. I am one of two ICSOTA Historians, and I am in charge of the
Social Committee. This is my first year on e-board and I hope to be a part of it next year as well. I
have taken courses in the clinic. I work 2 days a week in an after school program at Ithaca Montessori
Preschool. I also baby sit for several families in Ithaca that I have been with for over a year now. My
favorite OT class was probably Applied Occupations because we made some cool stuff in lab, and I
finally learned how to sew. My favorite ICSOTA event was Relay for Life last year!
