Katlyn Gillen

Katlyn Gillen - Chairperson

Hello! This year I am excited to begin the journey as this year’s SAB Chair. I am officially a senior attending MSUB for a Bachelor’s in Human Services. Life started for me in Elko, Nevada where I learned how to love nature and treasure family and friends. My journey then took me to Livingston, Montana where I then applied for college here at MSUB. Since then, I have loved my journey here on campus and can’t wait to see what the future holds for our students. Most individuals might know me as Peer Mentor at TRIO Student Support Services alongside of my new position in SAB. If I am not working on campus, waitressing/bartending, or catching up on school work, you can find me spending time with my family, drinking coffee with friends, or babysitting. I can’t wait to see you all at our amazing and fun events!!



Tori Cundiff

Tori Cundiff - Vice Chairperson

Hello! My name is Tori Cundiff and I am in my third year here at MSUB. I am studying Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology, with a goal of one day being a forensic psychologist. I am this year’s Vice Chairperson for the Student Activities Board. I am so excited to be holding this position within SAB and to be a part of the creation of fun events put on by SAB. I am from a small town in eastern Montana called Lambert, where I graduated with 6 other students. In my free time I enjoy rock climbing, knitting and enjoying time spent with friends.






Bossan Abdyyewa

Bossan Abdyywea - Secretary

Salam (hi in Turkmen)! I am very excited to be a SAB Secretary. I am a junior at MSUB, recently transferred from Northwest College, Powell, Wyoming. Originally, I am from Turkmenistan, 80% desert so I love Montana. I have the best view from my room window in Rimrock. I love learning languages; I speak Turkmen, Russian, English, Spanish, and some French. I love being part of SAB because I get to be part of campus fun and meet so many cool people on campus. I love being involved on campus because I hate being inactive. I am an RA in Rimrock hall and I am part of Student Government. I love baking, hiking, different types of sports, cliff jumping, skydiving, and watching Russian movies. Whenever you see me, don’t forget to say hi!!! 






Charlene Almer

Charlene Almer - Marketing Executive

Hey y’all, my name is Charlene and communication is my thing! Well not really but I enjoy it quite a bit. I’m in my last year majoring in Criminal Justice with a minor in psych. My dream is to one day help many lives of people all over the world affected by sex trafficking thru the FBI, but for now I am doing those odd ball college jobs. This year I will be the marketing executive for MSUB SAB, and I’m super excited to be in this role and make some fun with it! I’m originally from Texas but Montana has taken a piece of my heart. I love tennis, cats (well most animals really but CATS), chit chatting and exploring new places.





Erika Smith

Erika Smith - Treasurer

Hello, my name is Erika Smith and I am the Student Activities Board Treasurer. I am in my 4th year of college and I am majoring in psychology. Fun fact about me this is my second year of being involved with SAB and my 3rd year of working in the Center for Engagement as a student worker. Call me an old lady but my favorite way to pass time is writing letters and decorating the envelope to send to my pen pals. I also love to paint and read in my spare time. When I am not studying or working you can usually find me at Faith Chapel serving in the High School Movement youth group.
