Daniel Urrutia

While Nampa, Idaho may be my hometown, I fell in love with Moscow while gaining my degree in Management and Human Resources in 2014. I've worked with the Housing & Residence Life department since 2012. Initially I worked as an Information Desk Attendant, then the Summer Conference Manager and now I am a Resident Director for Wallace and McConnell Hall. I have learned a great deal from my colleagues and look forward to continue learning and developing myself as professional. 

Each semester I look forward to guiding and mentoring students of varying backgrounds. Our residents are students leaders and strive to make a difference in the community. Being a student that was actively involved in many organizations and departments, I highly encourage any student to go out and get involved. You never know who you will run into and if you can make a change in someone’s world.

What I love most about Idaho is the ability to connect with people on campus and the feeling that we are a Vandal family. Go Vandals!

Known Fact: Daniel always has the best candy in his office. His dream job is to become a storm chaser!

Ann Miller

I am so excited to be back at the University of Idaho with my fellow Vandals! The central coast of California was my home until I moved up to Idaho to pursue a college education. I started working within the Residence Hall Association during my freshman year here at the University of Idaho as the programming chair for my residence hall. After planning some fabulous and exciting events, I moved onto being the president of my residence hall and then the National Communications Coordinator of the University of Idaho Residence Hall Association.

In the spring of 2016, I graduated from the University of Idaho with a bachelor's in chemistry and a bachelor's in mathematics. I enjoyed working with my peers and students just starting their collegiate journey and realized that student affairs was exactly where I want to be.

In addition to science and mathematics, I enjoy music and most physical art forms. And fishing, sunshine, singing with the worship band at my church, and enjoying the company of my wonderful husband. Please feel free to come in and ask questions or just get to know me!

Known Fact: Ann is obsessed with puppies. Any size, shape or breed.
