Meet The
Spring 2024


Pranathi Kothuri


Hi, my name is Pranathi, and I'm majoring in Marketing with an MIS minor. I am the President of BWS, and in my free time, I really enjoy dancing, traveling, and doing hair/makeup.

I joined BWS in Spring 2022, and I really enjoy meeting new people and the community we have at BWS. As the previous junior and senior corporate relations member, I enjoyed learning about different companies and understanding what I am looking for. I want BWS to be an environment where we can help women grow professionally and personally.

Marissa Coveler

Vice President & Senior Corporate Relations Director

I joined BWS in Spring 2023. I was Junior Corporate Relations Director in Fall 2023, and currently I am the Vice President and Senior Corporate relations director for Spring 2024. I’m a Sophomore double majoring in Management and Supply Chain Management, and I plan to graduate with an honors degree in Spring 2026!


I enjoy watching shows/movies, going on walks, listening to music, and playing games. While I’m born and raised in Houston, the way to my heart is trying new restaurants. I spend most of my time with my friends, family, and pets. I would love to see the world and travel more during, and after, college.


I love being in BWS because I get to make friends, develop myself, and empower women all in one organization. Whether it’s by bringing out good companies, planning interactive workshops, or making friends, I love getting the opportunity to lift women up. I hope to continue to have this opportunity for the rest of my college career, and give back to BWS.
