How did you first hear about volunteering for Tri Delta, and what made you decide to volunteer?
I had so many wonderful alumnae role models when I was in college that saying “yes” to volunteering for Tri Delta was a no brainer. I knew I wanted to do it as soon as I was able.
I believe greatly in the importance of giving back to an organization that has given me so much. I find myself referencing my collegiate Tri Delta days often in my professional life. Tri Delta is where I learned to be a leader and I will be forever grateful for that. I would not be where I am today professionally without the experiences I got leading in Tri Delta.
What do you get most out of volunteering?
I always say “every day is an opportunity to make a new friend.” I LOVE the friends I have met through volunteering. I cannot imagine my life without them in it.
Professional development is important to me. I love growing and learning both as a person and as a leader. I’m grateful to Tri Delta for all that I have learned through its alumnae programming.
What has been the most rewarding experience?
I’m still in touch with some of the collegiate members I worked with when I was a CDO and CCCo. I love staying in touch with them as they advance in their careers and life.
