Why did you want to be a leadership development consultant (LDC)?

I wanted to become a LDC as soon as I met Caitlin Joseph during the colonization process at UNH. She was such role model to me and she inspired me to want to be a LDC.


What is your favorite memory from your time as a LDC?

My favorite memory was work week and recruitment at the Theta Chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It was my first time in Illinois!

What skills did you learn as a LDC?

As a LDC I honed my skills on conflict management/resolution, team building, leadership styles, autonomy and collaborative communication. I hope to transfer these skills to a career in marketing in Boston or NYC!

What did you learn about the larger Phi Sigma Sigma through this experience?

I learned that we have strong and passionate alumna of Phi Sigma Sigma that continue to empower each other.
