Wesley ParkLeslie Marie Brownlee and Claire Coleman are up to some very interesting things during the COVID-19 pandemic. They will discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on mental health, academia, and local government, as well as how they are responding to these unique challenges in their personal and professional lives. This program will be an exciting opportunity for all PBKNCA members who want to learn about the lives and careers of young Phi Betes during this unprecedented time. We invite you to bring your own beverage of choice to this happy hour conversation.

In 2019, Wesley graduated with Highest Honors from the University of California, Davis with a B.A. in Philosophy as well as a B.S. in Biological Sciences, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. In his free time, Wesley enjoys thinking about the meaning of life and practicing recurve archery as a form of mindfulness.
