Reflecting back on 2020, how did you adapt to so many aspects of life moving virtual?

I had to quickly start thinking forward. As a very involved volunteer in Delta Zeta and community organizations, it was time to step up and provide encouragement but also compassion to those that needed it. Already living a very virtual era, I was often looked to by those older than myself for assistance. I learned to practice patience and like our Creed, understanding and appreciation to not only myself but those around me. I took this opportunity to dive into my chapter as an alumnae volunteer as the Vice President of Long Range House Planning on our Local Housing Corporation as well as our national sorority alumnae as the State Alumnae Chair for Michigan, Iowa and Nebraska. This new found support system as an alumnae has quickly become a passion of mine, and I look forward to continuing to adapt as much as I can to the changing times.


What words of wisdom or advice do you live by?

Stop apologizing. You are human and humans make mistakes. Dust yourself off, get back up and make it right. YOU can do this! Listen to your body. In an era of progression in mental health support, take the time to learn about your limits and what you can do to be your best self daily. You are not alone.
