The Council advocates and promotes the welfare of students, organizes social activities and intramural sports, and promotes a professional attitude toward the University and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, Osborne College of Audiology, and College of Health Sciences, Education & Rehabilitation. Student Council is comprised of the executive board, class officers who represent each respective program by year, registered student organizations, and two advisors, the Dean of Students and Associate Director of Student Engagement.
President - Alexander Kirn '25OD
My name is Alex Kirn and I am currently a first-year Optometry student in the class of 2025 here at Salus. I’m from Enola, Pennsylvania, which is located just outside of Harrisburg. My undergraduate education came from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry.
Many factors played into my decision to continue my education at Salus, such as the reputable clinical experience, the campus and its location, and the high praise that I heard from various alumni. Possibly the most valuable aspect of my education thus far has been the chance to form relationships with my fellow classmates. With that in mind, my goal as a member of the Student Council is to provide the best possible student experience for everyone. I am excited for this opportunity, and I hope to have a great year!

Executive Secretary - Evyn Stewart '25AUD
Hello! My name is Evyn Stewart, I am an Audiology student in the accelerated program here at Salus University. I have a BA in Linguistics, minor in Psychology with a background in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Montclair State University where I was also a student-athlete and played field hockey for the University.
I chose Salus because of their small student to preceptor and professor ratio allowing for a more individualised learning experience and the exposure of clinic and patient care at the Pennsylvania Ear Institute starting in just the first semester.
I currently serve as the Executive Secretary of Student Council and am excited to support and provide information to my fellow classmates!
Executive Treasurer - Abigail Ramsaroop '25AUD
Hello everyone! My name is Abigail Ramsaroop and I am an Audiology student. I am originally from Queens, New York. I graduated from St. John’s University in 2022 with a bachelor’s in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I also have a minor in theology.
I chose to study here at Salus for several different reasons. I liked that the curriculum included lots of hands on experience. I also like that Salus has a family feel to it and I am honored to be apart of that family now.
I currently serve as Executive Treasurer for Student Council & I look forward to collaborating with other students across the multiple professions offered at Salus!

Executive Assistant - Julie Mumford '24OT
Hello! I am Julie Mumford, an Occupational Therapy student here at Salus University. I received my Bachelor's degree in Rehabilitation and Human Services, with triple minors in Deaf Studies, Disability Studies and Child Maltreatment and Advocacy Studies at The Pennsylvania State University.
I chose Salus because of their extensive emphasis on direct patient care, and providing fieldwork opportunities around the Philadelphia area, where I hope to pursue a career in the future.
I currently serve as one of your Executive Assistants on the Student Council and am looking forward to having a great year ahead!
