As I am looking back at the last eight months of my life, I realize how blessed I am to have been given such an amazing opportunity. I would have never imagined that I would be traveling across the United States having visited 13 states and 18 different college campuses. There is so much to see in this world and I am one lucky gal who was given this once in a lifetime adventure! Along the way I have met some amazing ladies and leaders that make me proud to be a Sigma Kappa.
I would like the keep the tradition of quotes going by sharing a personal favorite that has aided me in my travels as a leadership consultant.
“Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.”
– Conrad Hilton
I wanted to share some of my experiences thus far through pictures. Enjoy!

I had a lot of first time events occur to me this year as a leadership consultant. My favorite one – real seasons including the beautiful leaves of Fall.
After some time in Ohio I had the opportunity to visit Purdue University in Indiana.
What a beautiful campus!

Back to the east coast I go, New York!
Wonderful visit to Theta Iota!
I then headed home to California for Thanksgiving and Christmas where I enjoyed some TLC with family and friends.
The year 2011 began with a great reunion of the LC’s at midyear training.
Welcoming the newest addition to our team, Heather Milton, and enjoying the first snow of the year for me.
It was so nice having Missy with us for a day of midyear training
After midyear training, I headed out to the beautiful Virginia Tech campus for pre-recruitment.
Loved my time at Epsilon Chi. Go Hokies!
In case you didn’t know, this is a Hokie bird. There are statues of them everywhere in the town.
I then had the opportunity to assist the Delta chapter with formal recruitment.
After Boston University got hit with a big snowstorm!
Formal recruitment was held at a hotel, which meant the decorations stayed in the room with us!
I had the privilege of helping another LC do PR at The College of New Jersey for two weeks in January!
Shoveling the car out of snow was definitely another first for me!
So much snow that it was up to my knees!
After lots of snow, I headed to a little less snow in Rhode Island, Kansas and then to Pennsylvania for formal recruitment with the women of Gamma Upsilon.
Preference with Gamma Upsilon
Before we knew it colonization week was around the corner at The College of New Jersey! The colonization team flew in and we hit the ground running with over 100 women signed up for personal visits!
The fabulous team. Missing Tori in this picture!
Success! 72 wonderful new members!
Looking forward to sharing the months of March and April with so many amazing women across the country! Until then..
