- Name: Tiffany Mewes-Dunn
Hello, I am Tiffany Mewes-Dunn, your 2012-2013 UNL PBL President. I am currently a senior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I am obtaining a major in International Business and Psychology with minors in Economics; Leadership and Communication; and Spanish.
My FBLA-PBL career began my junior year at Southern High School. I have since served several leadership roles and received numerous awards. Without a doubt, the organization has helped shape the individual I am today. Now I take this opportunity to shape the organization by increasing not only membership numbers but membership involvement.
In addition to PBL, I work at the University of Nebraska Foundation. I also devote time to the Service and Leadership club and volunteer through Alternative Service Breaks, TeamMates, and Big Brothers Big Sisters. Another campus group I have become involved with is the Multicultrual Business Student Association where I will serve as vice-president for the 2012-2013 school year. When I do have free time, I love to read, kayak, and bike.
- Name: Marilyn Buresh
Office: Vice President
Hello! My name is Marilyn Buresh and I am your UNL Chapter Vice President. I'm a senior majoring in Management with a minor in Communication Studies. This is my seventh year being involved with FBLA-PBL. I joined in 2006 at Lincoln Southwest High School and have held multiple leadership positions throughout the years. This organization has given me countless opportunities to grow personally and professionally. If you know one thing about me, it’s that I love to travel, meet new people, and make friends and PBL is the perfect venue for this.
Outside of PBL I am involved in other organizations around campus and in the community. I am in the Cornhusker Marching Band’s drumline where I play cymbals. I serve as Historian and Leadership Chair for my sorority, Alpha Delta Pi, and intern for Talent Plus and Kaplan Test Prep. In my free time I mentor through TeamMates, dance, and read.
