Lobby Board is a non-partisan student group that has two goals: to advocate for higher education funding, and to help keep Auburn’s students politically active and informed.
Lobby Board is a political action group under the umbrella of the Auburn Student Government Association’s External Affairs team. Lobby Board’s main goal is simple; to lobby state politicians on behalf of Auburn University in favor of higher education funding. Currently, higher education institutions in Alabama receive less than one fourth of the overall education budget. Lobby Board is working to enhance that number.
My position in Lobby Board is to keep in constant contact with my assigned state politicians and to lobby them in favor of higher education funding. Another objective of this position is to educate Auburn students about upcoming campaigns, voter registration drives and policies that impact Alabama's public higher education institutions.

I serve as the internal and external spokesperson for our chapter.

The Society for Collegiate Leadership and Achievement (SCLA) is a modern college honor society with 30,000+ members at 220+ colleges nationwide. The aim of SCLA is to maximize student potential through skill development platforms, a mentor and peer community, and internship and job opportunities.
As the chapter president of the Society for Collegiate Leadership and Achievement, I am the head contact for the university. I actively reach out to the Office of Student Affairs to ensure SCLA is complying with all standards for a, on-campus student organization.
In addition, I am in charge of membership growth and development. I work with the university to identify students that meet SCLA’s standards for membership, and I coordinate outreach to those students. This has allowed SCLA to grow exponentially under my leadership.
In 2017, Auburn University reviewed and rewrote sections of the student organization social policy. I was chosen to be part of the committee to assist with these revisions.

Scroll through to see some of the things I learned while I served in my positions on Auburn's campus.
Nothing has taught me about the importance of integrity like my experience as chapter president of Pi Beta Phi. As president, I was tasked with making the right decision in difficult situations for over 270 women every single day. I learned that making the choice between what is right and what is easy is often more difficult than it seems.
My experience as a member of SGA’s Lobby Board has taught me that teamwork is an invaluable way to make a real difference. Each day, we work together to realize our collective goal of securing high education funding through forming meaningful relationships with Alabama’s elected leaders.
All of these experiences combined have given me the valuable understanding of what hard work means. Balancing my responsibilities while maintaining Dean’s List grades has pushed me to become better, do more and execute projects efficiently. Learning these skills early on will make me a valuable asset to any team.
