Pooja Bhatti, VP Administration

vpadmin@ams.ubc.ca | NEST 3514 | 604-822-3961

Hi UBC!  My name is Pooja Bhatti and I am your VP Administration for the AMS.

What do I do?  A lot of things:

  • Oversee the operations and expansion of the SLSC;
  • Support the over 400 clubs and constituencies;
  • Responsible for upgrades and projects of our AMS buildings, most recently, the Old SUB;
  •  Maintenance and promotion of the Hatch Art Gallery, and;
  • support Sustainability initiatives in the AMS

You can almost always find me in the Nest, whether that’s in my office, in the SLSC, or grabbing a veggie burger from The Gallery.  When I’m not fulfilling my duties at the AMS, you can usually find me watching Youtube videos or dancing around listening to really loud music. Got a question, an idea, or just want to hang, drop by my office and I’d love to hear from you!
