Meet the RamRide Staff

 

Director, Off-Campus Life

Jeannie Ortega

Jeannie feels as though she has grown up on campus, as she has been here since 1982! Having worked part time in various positions on campus, Jeannie eventually began working in OCSS/RAL in 1995 (before the flood!) and has been the director since 2000. She has a background in Psychology and Human Development & Family Studies from CSU. Jeannie truly enjoys working with students, seeing them reach their goals and realizing their full potential. It keeps her young at heart.

 

 

 

 

Assistant Director, Off-Campus Life

Lindsay Mason

Lindsay is originally from Southern California where she completed her Bachelor's degree in Sociology at California State University San Marcos. Lindsay and her partner, Jason, left the warmth of California and moved to Colorado in 2011 for Lindsay to complete her Master's in Student Affairs in Higher Education. Lindsay serves as the Assistant Director in Off-Campus Life, working with several programs including RamRide, and is also pursuing her Ph.D. in Higher Education and Student Affairs Leadership. Lindsay loves soccer, cooking, reading, stand-up comedy, 1990's sitcoms, and spending time outside with her two pups, Neville and Luna, and partner, Jason. She is proud to be a Ram and grateful for the opportunity to continue to work with CSU students.

 

 

 

Program Assistant, Off-Campus Life

Nancy Rhodes

Nancy became an honorary Ram when she joined Off-Campus Life in July, 2009. As OCL’s Administrative Assistant, she enjoys trying to help everyone else stay organized. Along with the ongoing operations, she supports big events like the Ram Welcome, Fall Cleanup, and the Housing Fair. Her move to Colorado (after a year-long RV trip around the country with her family) fulfilled her life-long dream of leaving Florida and living somewhere where she could wear sweaters and shovel snow. While she misses visiting her alma mater for burritos and football games (Go Gators!), she loves being involved in CSU and the ever-changing college atmosphere. Nancy has a Political Science undergrad, a master’s in Musicology, and a Paralegal Certificate – so if you’re looking for the ultimate Trivial Pursuit partner let her know.

Sam Leak

Sam is a second year student majoring in Zoology and minoring in Business Administration and Entrepreneurship and Innovation. She hopes to one day become a veterinarian and own her own medical practice. Sam is originally from Las Vegas, Nevada so living in Colorado is definitely a new experience but one that she loves and is excited about because seasons are an actual thing here! She’s been working with RamRide since October of 2017 and is proud to be able to work with a program that provides such a valuable service. You may also see Sam around at the Women and Gender Advocacy Center as she started as a student aide there in the fall of 2018. Sam loves reading, playing softball, watching the newest Netflix/Hulu shows, and traveling to see her beautiful dog Roxi back home in Las Vegas (who she is hoping to bring out to Colorado in the spring) as well as visiting with her 7 siblings and other family members. Sam is proud to be a CSU Ram and hopes to get more involved in a variety of opportunities that CSU has to offer.
