Liz is charged with telling the story of Alpha Kappa Psi. There’s a story behind every symbol, every change, and most importantly, every Alpha Kappa Psi member, and Liz has the distinct pleasure of helping share those.
Liz’s story with AKPsi started in 2011 when she joined the Theta Mu Chapter at Stetson University. After graduation, she wasn’t sure who she wanted to be when she grew up but she knew that joining the AKPsi Professional Staff was going to help her figure that out sooner or later. From expansion to chapter services to conduct to communication, Liz has enjoyed the journey learning so much more about AKPsi (and herself) than she could’ve ever imagined when she completed her interview process.
Liz’s love for the Greek community extends beyond AKPsi and is noted in her involvement with Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity. As a proud sister, she spends what free time she has mentoring collegians and serving the local Zeta alumnae community. She also tries to sneak in playtime with her pups, Baylee, Emmy, and Shep, and thoroughly enjoys reading a good book.
