While working for the Sorority as an Educational Consultant, I found myself committed to beginning a career in student affairs and higher education. I am passionate about the sorority experience and about working with women in our community. Working with sorority members on college campuses is the perfect way to blend my passions into a successful career. During my two years as an Educational Consultant, I was able to help establish two new Alpha Sigma Tau chapters, mentor new Sisters as they began their roles on their Executive Committees, helped plan our 41st National Convention, and developed a professional skill-set that has helped me thrive in a graduate program.
