Executive

President: Kelly Muzyka

My name is Kelly Muzyka and I am the President for the 2017/2018 year.  I am currently in the 4th year of my BSc in Agriculture, majoring in crop science.  I come from a grain farm north east of Edmonton (yes, probably the only farmer in Alberta without cows).  My love for plants and the agriculture industry is what brought me to become an Aggie.  Being a part of Ag Club for the past three years has not only provided me with great experiences, but unforgettable memories and even better friendships.  I’m very excited for another year with old friends and new!  If you have questions about joining the club, feel free to email me at knmuzyka@ualberta.ca! Lets make this year one for the books!

Vice President Social: Brandi Kobes

My name is Brandi Kobes and I am this year’s VP Social for the aggies. I am in my fourth year of Human Ecology in the faculty of ALES. I grew up in the small town of Edam, Saskatchewan with a beef farm about 8 miles west. Growing up I was an active member in the Edam West 4H Beef Club, numerous school sports and the student council. I am now a proud UofA Aggie, Ceres sister and full time procrastinator. Cheers to another great year with the Aggies!  Feel free to contact me via email bkobes@ualberta.ca or throw me a text 639-840-0585

I’m Jaymie Thompson, and I’ll be the Vice President Academic for the 2017/2018 year!  I’m in my 4th year of my BSc in Agriculture, and I am majoring in Animal Science.  This is my 3rd year with Ag club, and I could not be more excited to get this year going!  I grew up on a small hobby farm on Sumas Mountain in Abbotsford, BC with my parents and my sister.  We are pretty active in the cattle industry, and love to hit the show circuit every chance we get!  If you have any questions about Ag Club, feel free to contact me via email jaymie1@ualberta.ca.  Looking forward to a great year!

Vice President External: Brandon Douglas

My name is Brandon Douglas and I am currently in my 5th (and hopefully final) year of study for my Bachelor of Arts majoring in Economics. This is also my 5th year as a member of the Agriculture Club as well as being a member of FarmHouse Fraternity since 2013 where I also serve an executive position as President. I grew up near Delburne, AB on a dairy/beef/grain farm with my parents and three sisters. I enjoy long walks on the beach, deep conversations, just sending it, and spreading the gospel of Saturdays being for the boys. I proudly self-identify as a beauty so you don’t have to worry about being offensive by assuming how I choose to be viewed by society. If you have any questions about what we are about here in the Ag Club please feel free to ask! We would love to enlighten you!

I’m Kara Doerksen and the treasurer for Ag Club this year! I’m in the last year of my BSc decree, majoring in Crop Science.  I grew up on a farm along with my two sisters in the wonderful hamlet of Gem, Alberta.  My family raises purebred and commercial cattle, grows some crops, and runs a small feedlot.  I’m excited to be a part of the Ag Club events again this year, including Aggies intramural sports and especially Bar None!
