Laura joined her chapter in the fall of her sophomore year at Denison University. Along with being an RA and an athlete, she was an involved sorority woman. She remains active as an alumna volunteer. Her career path came about when the convergence of her love for mentoring intersected with her passion for the student experience. A mentor of hers recruited her to present at a professional conference as part of the Denison University team. It was at this conference that she found her future path. She went to Indiana University of Pennsylvania and recieved her masters in Student Affairs in Higher Education. There, she worked with fraternities and sororities. She was hooked. She believes in the power of the fraternal experience and the good that it provides its members and the community. In her words, she believes that “When we create a genuine experience bason on our values, we are unstoppable!” The SU Greek community is doing amazing things and is poised to continue to challenge each other and continue to improve. The readiness of the community to take on the challenge of culture change is why she is thrilled to be part of the FASA team that will support those efforts.

She is excited about welcoming the class of 2020 and starting her first academic year with Syracuse University!
