The DAPi Presidency
Brooke Frandsen - President
Brooke Frandsen is a senior from Los Angeles, California studying neuroscience and environmental science. Right now, she is particularly interested in the effects of air pollution on the brain. She will be applying to medical schools next year and would love to specialize in addiction. When she isn’t studying, Brooke loves to travel, spend time with her pets, and shop at Trader Joe’s.
This is Brooke’s second year with DAPi. She believes that DAPi can improve the campus experience for students with disabilities. From panels on advocacy to the new mentoring program under development, DAPi encourages students to fight stigmas surrounding their education and celebrate their accomplishments.
Kendon Holdaway - Vice President of Education
Kendon Holdaway is a senior studying Mandarin Chinese. Although he has been involved with the University Accessibility Center and other student organizations for almost 4 years now, this is his first semester working with DAPi. Kendon loves the people he meets through DAPi and that the organization stands for something bigger. He plans on attending medical school shortly after graduation and pursuing a career in organ transplantation, sharing his own experiences with kidney transplantation as motivation for others. He loves rock climbing and misses the sun in his hometown in Arizona.
Alex McBride - Vice President of Social
Alex McBride is a senior in the advertising program, hailing from the land of Houston, Texas. This is her second year involved with DAPi. Alex loves the fact that DAPi empowers those struggling with personal trials and is a reminder that even though there may be more road bumps ahead, anything is possible if you put your mind to it. Alex is planning on going into Art Direction and/or producing when she graduates. Alex has two dogs at home whom she loves very much and she is obsessed with crafting and creating art. She also finds tiny things adorable. Lastly, she does not understand how people can eat pineapples on pizza and finds the idea completely ludicrous.
Kyle Homer - Vice President of Service
Kyle Homer is a senior studying exercise science. He joined DAPi last year when he first heard about it. Kyle loves DAPi’s mission to empower students with disabilities. He sincerely believes everyone can be successful. This year Kyle is excited to serve the DAPi community and contribute to a culture of compassion and support.

Megan Johns - Communications Director
