BC Splash's Executive Board is entirely made up of Boston College students, who have experience teaching and love Splash! While we have help from Boston College faculty and the Office of Student Involvement, the current board members run the entire event and will be the ones to answer any questions you might have!

Ashley Antico, Director 

I am a Junior in the Carroll School of Management, studying Marketing and Economics! I attended BC Splash when I was in high school and as soon as I stepped foot on the Boston College campus, I got involved as a teacher and then worked my way up to become the director. Some of my favorite classes that I have taught in the past include The Science Behind Slime and A Brief History of the United States According to Modern Musicals. When I am not working on Splash, you can find me singing with the Liturgy Arts Group, dancing with BC Full Swing, or baking with my roommates! I am truly passionate about BC Splash and seeing our students and teachers grow in their love for learning!

Ria Talathi, Assistant Director

I am a Junior studying Biochemistry. My favorite class that I have taught in the past is called Highest Grades, Lowest Effort, and it is all about working smarter, not harder. A fun fact about me is that I lived in Mumbai, Egypt, and London while growing up!

Zarah Lakhani, Student Coordinator 

I'm Zarah, a freshman at Boston College! I'm from Long Island, NY and miss the beaches at home so much! I'm studying Elementary Education and Transformative Education in BC's Lynch School of Education. One of my favorite classes that I taught was Painting Away the Pain, as it brought together two of my passions, social justice and painting. 


Kelly Nix, Outreach Coordinator
I'm Kelly, and I am a first year in the Mental Health Counseling Master's Program. I taught a class on mindfulness in the past with another student in my program, and following that I became eager to help further develop the program. When not studying, you can find me supporting City Connects as a graduate assistant, housed in the BC Lynch School of Education. I also enjoy cycling and just about any outdoor activity that Boston has to offer!

Zachary Westen, Secretary

Hi!  My name is Zachary Westen and I am a sophomore at BC from Denver, Colorado.  I am majoring in Philosophy, English, and Theology and minoring in Ancient Civilization.  A class I previously taught was Ethical Inquiries which focused on moral dilemmas that are common in moral philosophy (think the train problem).  I am also a member of BC's fencing team.  I am really looking forward to this semester and getting to interact with all of our teachers and students!
