Amanda Vines
PRESIDENT

Hello, biology friends! My name is Amanda Vines. I’m a senior from Rowlett, Texas, majoring in Cell Biology. After I get my B.S. from Dallas Baptist University, I hope to go to graduate school to get my Ph.D. and do research in genetics or molecular biology, Lord willing. When I’m not studying, I enjoy reading, cross stitching, watching classic movies, and listening to show tunes and worship songs. I’m so excited to serve as your president and see what our second year will bring for TriBeta!

Madeleine Newby-Estrella
TREASURER

Hey there, fellow biology scholars! My name is Leine Newby-Estrella, and I’m a junior at DBU. This school is such a blessing for those looking to enrich their education in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment, especially alongside fellow God-loving, aspiring scientists influenced by amazing faculty! I am a Cell Biology major and am getting double minors in Chemistry and Kinesiology. Once I graduate, I plan to go to medical school to become an orthopedic surgeon. Ultimately, I would like to get both my MD/PhD sometime after leaving DBU, as I know the Lord has called me to medicine and scientific research. I also play hockey for the school, and love to figure skate, play piano, listen to music, go on adventures, and of course—study! I am so grateful to be the treasurer for the Omicron Kappa Chapter of TriBeta! I look forward to doing my part towards making our new chapter a strong and successful organization. Stay tuned for all the exciting fundraisers we’ll be doing this semester!
