How did you learn about the opportunity to become a Theta volunteer? As a collegian, I remember working with our advisory board at Ohio State. This was the first time that "Theta for a lifetime" really resonated with me. I always thought it was so special that these women had chosen to make Theta a part of their life beyond college.
What made you want to become a Theta volunteer? After serving as an ELC for two years, I knew I still wanted to be involved with Theta. The Fraternity was such a huge part of my life as an ELC, and I couldn't imagine giving that up completely. I began volunteering a few months after I finished the ELC program, and I haven't looked back since!
How long have you been a Theta volunteer? Three years.
Do you, or did you have, a Theta mentor? She may not know this, but my Theta mentor is Madison Motley Nash, Alpha Omicron/Oklahoma. Madison and I were based together during my first year as an ELC, when we helped establish Eta Chi/Boston. Even though she was just one year older than me, she offered a wealth of knowledge and guidance beyond her years. Madison taught me so much: how to have difficult conversations, how to best utilize one's strengths, how to be a leader, and so much more. Most importantly, Madison and I became best friends. I just traveled to Oklahoma City to be in her wedding in December!
Why do you stay involved with Theta? I stay involved with Theta for two reasons. First, because I believe it's a small way to give back to an organization that has given me so much. And second, because I truly enjoy it. I love building relationships with undergraduate women and helping them to excel in their officer roles. They teach me so much, and they inspire me to be a better advisor every day.
Do you have a special volunteering moment? One of my favorite moments happens daily through social media: seeing the founding members of Eta Chi Chapter go out into the real world and have new life experiences and adventures together. When they joined this brand-new chapter, they didn't even know one another. Years later, they continue to be best friends, roommates, mentors, coworkers, and confidants to one another. It is a very special thing to know that I played a small part in fostering those lifelong friendships. And it's fun to follow along and watch them move to new cities together, start new jobs, and enjoy post-grad life!
Do you have a special Theta moment? I don't know if I could pinpoint just one moment, only because there have been so many! My younger twin sisters joined Theta a few years ago, and I was able to be there for Initiation. It was such a special moment for the three of us. I also have regular reunion trips with my new member class and my ELC team, which are always so much fun. So far we've traveled to NYC, DC, Scottsdale, and Dallas, with more destinations on the way!
Do you have a profession or personal passion? I work in medical device sales for Stryker and absolutely love my job. It's very challenging and forces me to go outside of my comfort zone every day. In addition to volunteering with Theta, I also volunteer as a Guardian Ad Litem for CASA of Franklin County in Columbus, Ohio. I have served three children thus far. I hope to continue volunteering with CASA for many more years to come!
