MM EXECUTIVE COUNCIL 2016
Frank Bailey – President
Frank has lived in Vancouver for 8 years and is from California. Before attending Sauder he was an actor in Vancouver and had earned a BA in History from UBC. When he isn’t studying or working on team projects he is hunting for a marketing job in the tech industry. He might even be relaxing, but probably not.
Soundous Ettayebi – VP Internal
Soundous graduated with a HBSc in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the University of Guelph. Having lived in and visited many countries, Soundous developed a keen interest in learning about different cultural norms and traditions. Some of her travels have also sparked her passion for developing accessible health systems. In her spare time, she enjoys taking advantage of all Vancouver has to offer as well as learning about the diverse backgrounds of her MM family. Soundous hopes to pursue a career in the Global Health sector after the completion of her MM degree.
Brittany Tuttle – VP Career Affairs
Completing an Honours Planning degree at the University of Waterloo introduced Brittany to the realm of multi-disciplinary thinking and the amazing things that can be achieved through collaboration. Her aim to see things from a new perspective and become a better team player is what led her to the MM program. She looks forward to applying the skills she gains from the program to her future career in the urban planning field. Aside from her passion for cities, Brittany loves getting outdoors, creating watercolour artwork, and perfecting her chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Vivian Tong – VP Career Affairs

She hopes to start her own business in the organic and health food export business after the program. Vivian is an avid traveler and scuba diver. On her spare time, you’ll find her either planning her next travel adventure or hanging out with her chocolate lab.
Ellen Lee – VP International
Ellen was born in Taiwan, and has been living in Vancouver for the past 10 years. She completed her undergrad with a major in sociology and a minor in psychology. Having moved very often as a child, she developed strong adaptability, leading to her interest in getting to know people from different cultures. During her spare time, she enjoys working out, hiking, playing basketball, snowboarding, cooking…etc—pretty much everything outdoorsy and active. After completing the MM, Ellen hopes to pursue a marketing/brand management role in the consumer goods industry.
Nicole Hausman – VP Events
Nicole grew up in Toronto and studied Urban Planning and Politics. She has worked in the environmental non-profit sector and hopes to pursue a career that focuses on sustainability and community development. After making her move towards the west coast, her dream of living by the ocean and mountains finally came true. In her free time you can find her at a yoga class, eating kale, getting outdoors and fully embracing the Vancouver lifestyle.
Kristen Underwood – VP Events
Ben Magnuson – VP Health & Wellness
Ben was born and raised in the small town of Williams Lake, BC and completed his BSc in Biology at Trinity Western University. He loves sports and enjoys exploring the outdoors. This was complemented nicely by his work as a forestry firefighter from 2012 to 2016. Ben loves to make the most of his experiences and is always trying to better the lives of others through having an optimistic outlook on life. He feels very at home in my position as VP health and wellness because it gives him the opportunity to invest in the lives of his cohort in a way that makes their MM experience more enjoyable. Finally, remember to stay healthy my friends.
Kelvin Benger – VP Finance
Kelvin grew up overseas and didn’t move to Canada, his “home”, until he graduated high school. He loved his time overseas and greatly appreciates all that he experienced. Each of the different places he called home makes up a unique part of him. From the jungles of Indonesia, to the family farm in Southern Alberta and then from the Urban density of the Asian metropolitan giant, Seoul, to the suburban outskirts of Langley. He loves traveling, sports and finding new things to learn about/develop. This year Kelvin is the VP of Finance and he hopes to work in the non-profit or education sector.
