Tanner Christensen

Tanner Christensen (he/they) is a sophomore majoring in psychology with minors in Spanish and dance. Born and raised in Utah, he comes from a very religious upbringing that has restricted his access to explore his identity and beliefs. However, at Stanford, he has been enriched with such a supportive and diverse community that has challenged his preconceived notions about the world, and has allowed him to do things he never thought imaginable. Outside of working at the Haas Center, he is on the Stanford Cheer Team (Go Card!), a communications intern for Root & Rebound, a member of Stanford Housing Justice, and a devout lover of caffeine. Come see Tanner at the Haas Center if you ever need help navigating any part of the Stanford community, or if you just want to have a good laugh over coffee. Schedule an appointment with Tanner.

Gabby Crooks is a junior majoring in international relations with minors in human rights and Spanish. She hails from the D.C. area, and her close proximity to the city, paired with serving as a defense lawyer for the Big Bad Wolf at nine years old, inspired her to pursue a legal career. She is interested in becoming an international human rights attorney, with interests in immigration advocacy and sustainable and equitable development in Latin America and Africa. At Stanford, Gabby serves as one of the co-presidents of Stanford Women in Law, as well as being an Undergraduate Senator on the ASSU Senate and an associate at the Black House. Feel free to ask Gabby about advocacy, being pre-law, how to transform your engagement with public service into a career, or how many Netflix shows she’s currently watching (at last count, three). Schedule an appointment with Gabby.

Becca McCabe

Becca McCabe (she/her) is a junior from a small town in southeastern Arizona. She is majoring in communication, though it took a few years of deliberation to make that decision. Becca hopes to use her degree to enter the business world as a corporate event planner (!) or create graphics/posts for social media marketing. Becca will be working at the Haas Center for Public Service as the communications coordinator, and is excited for the new experiences that will come with the position. Growing up in a small town gave her many service opportunities, and she hopes to spread opportunities on campus to all the students attending Stanford. Becca also participates in the Stanford American Indian Organization core on the Sibs Committee, and will be helping with the SAIO Powwow later in the year. She loves to watch TV (mostly kids shows/cartoon movies), take night walks around campus, and is obsessed with boba! Feel free to talk to Becca about anything and everything!
