Jessica shares, “My current position can be challenging, but it is very rewarding when I get to work with a member on a positive change for herself and/or her chapter. During discussions about discipline, I still have the opportunity to connect with Phi Mus. I was recently talking with a member and she asked about my career as a dietitian. As it turned out, she is interested in a similar career path. It was great to be able to share my passion as a Phi Mu volunteer and my love for what I do in my professional life.
Kendall Carpenter, a mentee of Jessica, says, “Jessica was the first volunteer I encountered in my Phi Mu experience. As my former chapter adviser and now National Discipline Chairman, she has been my Phi Mu mentor from the start. She is the person who inspired me to become a Phi Mu volunteer!”
