Brittni Abasta

5th Year, Kinesiology-Exercise Science Generalist

Hello! My name is Brittni and I am currently a 5th year Kinesiology student who has volunteered with HPAO for 2 years and now working here for almost a year. My time spent outside of academics looks a bit different than most as I am a wife and mother who spends majority of my free time with my family and our sweet Frenchie. In my free time I love to read books for my book club, teach myself how to play the electric guitar, volunteer as the PTA president for my daughter’s school and really enjoy attending weekly Pilates classes. 


Camille Movafagian

3rd Year, General Biology

Howdy! My name is Camille and I am a 3rd year biology and music major with a minor in interdisciplinary studies. I am on the pre-med track. This is my second semester working as an advising assistant at HPAO! Outside of the office I am involved in Beta Psi Omega (professional biology fraternity) and research in Dr. Flores-Renteria’s lab. I am also part of the choral program on campus. Off campus I am a volunteer at Palomar hospitals through the Pathmaker Internship. With my down time I enjoy reading, painting, watching movies/tv-shows with my roommates, thrifting, and going to the beach! Looking forward to continuing to help students this semester 😀


Kaitlyn Straka

2nd Year, Kinesiology/Pre-Physical Therapy

Hey! My name is Kaitlyn and I am a second year Kinesiology student. I started working at HPAO as a peer mentor last semester and now I am a student assistant. I am a member of Delta Gamma, and I am very passionate about serving the blind and visually impaired community. I volunteer for a non-profit called GiftedBack where we focus on selling blind artists, crafters, and knitters goods. I also am beginning to volunteer at Scripps Memorial Hospital in Hillcrest. On campus, I work in the Enwemeka and Bumah Lab on various photobiology projects. In my free time I love going to the beach, going out to dinner, and of course going to pilates! If you guys have any questions feel free to stop by and I always love to chat.
