Media Director

Meggie Reynoso

Meggie is the Media Director of Bauer Women Society. She is a senior at the C.T. Bauer College of Business where she is pursuing her degree in Accounting. She plans on taking the advanced classes in order to be eligible for the CPA.  Last Fall 2013 was her first semester at the University of Houston transferring from Lone Star College. She recently became a member of BWS (Spring 2014) and has enjoyed the new friends and experiences so far. 

Besides school, she has a part-time job at a retail store and is very active at her church. She leads music for the Women's ACTS Retreat at St. Ignatius Loyola Catholic Church and also is part of the Life Teen Band. She is musically talented and sings and plays several instruments, including the guitar, piano, flute, piccolo, and a little bit of drums. By leading music for retreats, she sees that it can speak to someone without even knowing and hopes to do the same for the new BWS members, that they may see a successful future and not let the negatives bring them down especially the fact of being a lady. 

She is excited to take several pictures of the upcoming semester, create slideshows, and compose a memorable video at the end! She is very outgoing, so meeting the new members will be a blast and hopefully does not scare them away. Her goal this semester is to simply enjoy school, meet new people, and  make a positive influence. 

Community Service Director

Amber Fusselman

Amber is the Community Service Director for Bauer Women Society. She has a passion for volunteering and cannot wait to extend her love for helping others in Bauer Women Society. In the past, she has attended fundraising walks, participated in the MS150 for 4 years, and raised over $1,900 in her lifetime. She knows this is just the beginning of her journey to help the community and hopes to expand her experience even more. 

She loves long distant cycling, martial arts, and her pet frog, Cinnamon. She also enjoys eating, particularly new and exotic foods, and visiting new places. She has the common dream of traveling the world but is just as satisfied in discovering a local hidden jewel. Any new experience is a great experience in her opinion. 

Another one of her hobbies is songwriting. She has written more than 20 songs and counting. Maybe one day she'll get her music published. She knows the basics of violin, piano, and guitar to accompany her songs. Aside from that, she has an unfortunate fondness for sleeping and exercising. She is a little bit introverted but is working on becoming more open. Amber will not let her shyness get in the way of having a great year. She looks forward to meeting all of you and having a great time!
