Hello, my name is Nina Deceuninckvancapelle, I am the Secretary for the Leonardtown Campus and a Nursing student. I like photography, camping, hiking, and urban exploration, as well as learning about medical science, microbiology, and true crime during my free time. I also like oddities and weird history.

I’m currently a second-semester nursing student, and I plan to either graduate with my ASN and my BSN or complete my BSN at Stevenson University afterward. I have many goals – travel more, go on more adventures, take care of my friends and family, and to always practice demonstrating empathy and understanding to others, regardless of the situation.

My main goal for the future is to continue my education and become a CRNP so that I can help others as much as possible. I’ve also always dreamed of one day being an infectious disease doctor. As an officer of SGA, I plan to use my position to act as a voice for students to ensure that CSM remains a safe and effective learning environment for everyone who is part of our community.



Christian Wolpert, a dedicated nursing major at Leonardtown Campus, serves as the Treasurer, demonstrating a commitment to both financial stewardship and healthcare excellence. In his role, Christian ensures transparent and effective allocation of campus funds.

Beyond his financial responsibilities, he balances academics, leadership, and community involvement seamlessly, showcasing his commitment to personal and professional growth. As Treasurer he will make sure we have enough funds to keep the fun coming. When he is not ignoring his emails, he is playing the piano, watching movies, and sometimes you might even catch him studying. Christian Wolpert is willing to make a lasting impact at CSM and the community as a whole.



Hello, CSM community. I am Gabriela Gomero Toscano, your presidential representative from the Leonardtown Campus.
