When I arrived at Auburn University, little did I know how far, wide and deep my Auburn experience would be! It has taken me into life-long learning, service, and leadership roles both personally and professionally, and has greatly and positively influenced my life.

After becoming a Zeta Tau Alpha sister, an SGA delegate, a Panhellenic delegate, and finally Panhellenic President at Auburn University, I learned the tremendous value of female leadership. It was that platform and that service that enabled me to become who I am today.

With the outstanding mentoring of Dr. Deborah Shaw, a fellow Auburn University alumna, servant, and leader, I would not have had the opportunities that I had. She saw potential in me. For that, I’m eternally grateful.

She empowered me and the fellow founders of the Cater Society in 1992, to carve a place in Auburn University’s history of women.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
