Meet The Staff
Residence Hall Coordinator
Hey everyone! My name is Heidi Muller, and I am Lincoln’s Residence Hall Coordinator. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Social Work. I love to travel, read, volunteer, spend time with my friends and family, watch movies, and listen to music. My family means the world to me, which is great because it’s huge. My mom got remarried four years ago this past June, so on top of the siblings I already have (Beth, Tommy, and Mae), I now have two step-sisters (Amanda and Melissa) and a step-brother (Jacen). My family is crazy and very loving and I’ve been blessed to have them all in my life. I’m definitely a child at heart who still enjoys the little things in life. You will probably see me laughing and smiling the majority of the time. My office door is always open for anyone who wants or needs to talk or visit!!
Graduate Resident Assistant
Hello! My name is Karen Sommers and I am proud to say I was raised a Buckeye because I live in St. Clairsville, Ohio, but I was born a Mountaineer! I graduated from WVU with my BS in Animal and Nutritional in the spring of 2012 and I am currently pursuing a MS in Animal Science. I am a very type A personality and I hate not being busy. My favorite color is yellow and I love meeting new people and talking to strangers. (You can expect very un-awkward PRT rides if I am aboard.) I have had many jobs, which includes 3 years of Resident Assisting, but my most resent was a WVU STEM Ambassador. This means I was one of eleven students selected to travel all across the state of West Virginia and promote science related fields to 4H campers. And if you can’t tell from my picture my graduate research deals with sheep, but I am only slightly obsessed.
Hi everyone :) My name is Angel Ninan and I am from Philadelphia. I have my bachelor’s degree in English and Philosophy with minors in Theater and Spanish and a specialization in Professional Writing and Editing. I am looking into going to law school or getting masters in social work and then pursuing law. One of the things that I am passionate about is human rights; specifically children’s rights regarding economic, social and cultural rights, which I try to research and raise awareness for, and one day hope to help with as a future lawyer. In my free time, I enjoy the beach, movies, reading, creative writing, music, spending time with family and friends, nature hikes, and photography. This is my third year at Lincoln and I am excited to meet you! I love to listen and help out so don’t hesitate to stop by.
Graduate Wellness Coordinator
Hello everyone! My name is Lauren Gerchufsky! This will be my third year as a Wellness Coordinator at Lincoln Hall. I’m really excited for this year to begin and to get to know a great bunch of people! I have my bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition and Foods and I am currently a graduate student pursuing my master’s in Public Health. I hope to one day become a Registered Dietitian and run my own wellness and community center. I grew up in New Tripoli, a small town in eastern Pennsylvania, but my home for the past four years has been in the wild and wonderful. My favorite hobby is spending time with the people I love. I also enjoy all types of sports, outdoorsy activities, and cooking. I look forward to a great year at Lincoln!
Hey all! My name is Kristen and I am a junior nursing student from Martinsburg, WV. I spend most of my time bouncing between studying and procrastinating, with the majority of the procrastination time spent on Pinterest, reading fashion blogs or watching reality TV. I am addicted to coffee, love hiking and can’t wait to meet everyone.
Hello everybody! My name is Tristan Webster. I am originally from Moscow, Russia. My parents adopted me when i was two and brought me to the states. I lived and grew up north of Pittsburgh, so naturally I root for the Steelers and Penguins. My family recently moved to Tennessee and that is where we currently reside. I major in television journalism, have an internship with MSN, and am a member of the WVU Film Society. My interests cover a wide range from sports, to various types of music, cooking and anything outdoors. My main interests focus on movies and the study of film. (i’m also a film buff) I plan to be a filmmaker or tv producer one day, but until then i will be studying at WVU. I will be a sophomore in the upcoming fall semester and am looking forward to a great year! GO MOUNTAINEERS!!!!
Hey everybody! My name is Ryan Blondino and this will be my first year as an RA for WVU. I have always been an outgoing person and I can’t wait to get to know everyone living in Lincoln! I grew up in Southern Maryland where I learned to wakeboard, ran for my high school track team, and supported my Washington sports teams (Capitals, Redskins, Nationals, etc.). I watch movies more than I watch television, regularly listen to electronic dance music, run in the rain, take on wild eating challenges, and spend all my time with other people. I transferred to WVU where I am now an Industrial Engineering student, so if anyone has any questions regarding university policies, academic assistance, extracurricular activities, or anything else, feel free to ask! I am a great listener if anyone ever needs to talk. Oh, and one more thing: LET’S GOOOO…...MOUNTAINEERS!!!!!
Hey everybody! My name is Emily Morgan, and I’m from Frederick, Maryland; about three hours from Morgantown. This is my first year as an RA and my first year at Lincoln. I am double-majoring in Biology and Chinese Studies, and I hope to go into international health and epidemiology (yes, like in Contagion). I’ve studied abroad in China twice! I love reading, cooking (especially desserts), movies, traveling, attending concerts, and playing video games. I’m super excited to meet all of you, and I can’t wait to have a fantastic year! My door is always open, so feel free to stop by for a cup of tea or just to talk! :)

My name is Walter Hall I live in Woodbridge Virginia, but I am not really from anywhere if that makes since. My mom is in the military so I have moved a total of 16 times which was really fun. I am a sophomore electrical engineering major and I am also in the Air Force ROTC program here at WVU. This will be my second year as an RA. I am a Cowboys fan for life and I enjoy watching all sports. I played basketball and run cross-country in high school but my favorite sport to play hands down is basketball. I’m very exciting to meet all of you hope your having a great summer and I am looking forward to an exciting year.
Hi!! I’m Ariel, and this is my first year as an RA!! I grew up in Monroe County, West Virginia, and I am currently living in Annapolis, MD. I’m a Biology major with a huge interest in philosophy, ethics, and neuroscience. One of my hobbies is to set goals for myself and then try to meet them? which makes day to day life a little more fun and productive. For example, sometimes I try to see if I can shower in less than three minutes, or if I can learn my alphabet backwards, or if I can run on a treadmill for the entire length of the movie Million Dollar Baby. My goals this year are: for my floor to have the best overall GPA on campus, to get you all involved with the college and community, and for us to go camping!!!! If you have any goals of your own this year, come on by my room!!!
Hi, Everyone!! :) My name is Kylie and this is my second year as an RA at Lincoln. I’m from Falling Waters, WV (on the eastern panhandle near Washington D.C.) where I’ve lived almost my entire life. I am a senior in the Forensic & Investigative Science program here at WVU and am also pursuing a minor in Biology. I love movies, rock climbing, going to the gym, eating, and occasionally reading. I’m very active and I am a pretty friendly person once you get to know me. My door is always open to anyone that needs to talk, so don’t be intimated!! I know this is going to be another great year! Go Mountaineers! :)
My name is Clayton Peachey, but most people just call me Peachey. I am from Central Pennsylvania in a little town called Reedsville. For those of you who have never heard of it (which is most likely all of you), it is 15 minutes away from State College. I will be a sophomore this coming year, and my major is Business Administration. I love meeting new people and getting to know them but cannot remember names for the life of me, so don’t take it personally if I forget your name. I am interested in literally everything; I am a big video gamer and movie junkie, but I also love sports, particularly football(GO STEELERS!) and weight lifting. I also recently got into reading and am on the last book of the Harry Potter series, which is now my favorite book series. I don’t watch TV except for The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and Big Bang Theory. In all, I am a really easy guy to get along with and can’t wait to meet all of you next year. If you guys ever have problems, questions, or just need someone to talk to, my door will always be open to you.
