Carson College of Business Meet the Peer Mentors

Carson Center Peer‑Mentors


Caitlyn Aune – Accounting, Senior

I am currently a senior majoring in Accounting. I grew up in the Tri-Cities in a Coug family, and have known that I wanted to be a Coug since I attended my very first Cougar football game as a child. There’s something so unique and special about attending Washington State and I’m so glad that I’ve gotten to experience it! I am very involved on campus, and love meeting new people through the activities I am involved in. In addition to being a Peer Mentor, I am also a member of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority, the Beta Alpha Psi (accounting business fraternity) Vice President of Public Relations, and the Love Your Melon Crew Captain.

Nate Bagley – Accounting and MIS, Junior

I am double-majoring in Accounting and Management Information Systems. I chose to come to Washington State University because I believed that the strong community of Pullman would encourage me to grow both personally and professionally. I became a Peer Mentor because of my passion for helping students achieve academic success. I also am involved in Beta Alpha Psi, the business fraternity for Finance, Accounting and MIS majors, where I hope to hold an executive position for my senior year. In my spare time, I love to spend my time outdoors: hiking, fishing, and camping. I also love to travel, and spent last summer studying abroad in Greece. It is one of my career and life goals to spend a few years working in another country.

Jesus Hernandez – International Business and Finance, Senior

I’m a first generation scholar and currently stand as a senior studying International Business with an emphasis in Finance. I serve in various leadership roles throughout WSU as an ASWSU Senator for the College of Business and as a Council member of the United Greek Council. I hope to one day become the CFO of a large company and eventually become the CEO of my own. I’m passionate about making positive change while empowering others to do the same. I love talking about current events, hip-hop culture, and thought provoking ideas.

Kimber Nunez – Finance, Senior

I am from East Wenatchee, a Corgi lover, and enjoy a good laugh. I am studying Finance and HR Management, so I can become a successful Latina businesswoman. I love the environment that WSU provides to all students through resources, events, and football games. Cougs love to give back and that is why I am involved. I am Vice President of my sorority, Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Inc., Secretary of ALPFA (Association of Latino Professionals For America), VP of Programming for the United Greek Council, and a WSU Orientation Counselor.

Max Prado – Finance, Senior

I am currently a senior majoring in Finance. I enjoy giving back to my community through various leadership and involvement roles that I hold on campus. I am the President of Omega Delta Phi Fraternity, Inc. and the Vice President of the Association of Latino Professionals for America. I consider myself a very open minded person, and I enjoy learning new things that help me become more well-rounded. I have a true passion for helping people reach their full potential. During my free time I like to weight train, read self-help books, and browse Reddit.

Jessica Villanueva – MIS and Economics, Senior

I’m from the small island of Kaua’i, Hawai’i. I am a senior, pursuing a major in Management Information Systems with a minor in Economics. After graduating WSU, I would like to pursue a career in data analytics, specifically back home in Hawai’i. Being from an extremely small town, I plan on helping Hawai’i’s small business industry with technological advancements. Along with being a Peer Mentor for the Carson College of Business, I am also the Secretary for Hui Hau’oli ‘O Hawai’i, also known as the WSU Hawaii Club.
