Meet our Chapter Management Team!
President – Natalie Charlier
Hometown: Chicago, IL
Major: Communication Studies
Why Alabama?: I wanted to get out of the cold and go somewhere I had never been.
Favorite part of my position: Getting the opportunity to build personal relationships with a lot of girls from different pledge classes and encouraging other women.
Best sisterhood story: For spring break last year, Megan Birkes and I road tripped to Orlando and spent the whole car ride with the windows down singing at the top of our lungs. It’s really special to have such a close friend and mentor who is an upperclassman.
Future goals: I hope to work for Delta Gamma nationally after college and engage in a career where I can empower other women.
Fun fact about you: I am the youngest of five girls and I’m a twin!
VP Communications- Amanda Shoemaker
Hometown: Kansas City, MO
Major: Biology with a Spanish Minor
Why Alabama?: I knew I wanted to come to the South and spent a week traveling and visiting different schools. Once I visited Alabama’s campus I just knew I had to come here.
Favorite part of my position: I love getting to know all the different girls of the house, being VP Communications allows me to be one of the main people girls come to when they have questions and I love being able to help out!
Best sisterhood story: I honestly can’t think of one specific moment. Since joining this sisterhood, I have had too many moments laughing until I cry, having late night conversations with sisters, and so much more. This sisterhood has truly shaped my college career so far.
Future goals: Long term is to hopefully be an orthopedic surgeon one day.
Fun fact about me: No one in my family actually makes shoes.
VP Programming – Halle Russo
Hometown: Cincinnati, OH
Major: Public Relations
Why Alabama?: I wanted a school with a huge Greek system, good academics (our PR program is one of the best in the nation), and, of course, a pretty awesome football team.
Favorite Part of Your Position: I love watching my ideas and plans come to life, and being able to work with women who are driven to be as successful as I am on a daily basis.
Best sisterhood story: Meeting my three best friends freshman year, and getting to live in an apartment with all of them this year. They truly have become my family.
Future Goals: After graduating from Alabama, I want to get a job at a prestigious Public Relations agency, and travel as much as possible.
Fun Fact about you: I once traveled to seven different countries in less than two weeks.
VP Panhellenic – Avery Pendley
Hometown: Madera, CA
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Why Alabama?: The campus and the atmosphere.
Favorite part of your position: I get to be in charge of the two best weeks of the year- Greek Week and Homecoming!
Best sisterhood story: Meeting this random girl on bid day, who ended up being my best friend and roommate this year living in the Delta Gamma house.
Future goals: To graduate in four years with a job waiting for me and to hopefully get to travel the world.
Fun fact about you: I’ve watched the entire Grey’s Anatomy series through five times.
VP Member Education – Lanie Malek
Hometown: Richmond, TX
Major: Public Relations
Why Alabama?: I chose Alabama for the amazing PR program and the beautiful campus.
Favorite part of your position: I love being able to work with the new members and teach them about DG. I also love to help motivate sisters to reach their highest scholastic potential and implement our rituals within the chapter.
Best sisterhood story: I never realized how much I wanted a sister until I was given 400. Knowing that there is always someone there for me, no matter where I am in the world, means so much to me. Two years ago I didn’t have any sisters, and now they are something that I am most grateful for.
Future goals: I hope to someday work for a PR agency; or have a job where I can work with children.
Fun fact about you: I have two middle names
VP Social Standards – Ally Hughes
Hometown: Granite Bay, CA
Major: Business Management
Why Alabama?: I had an amazing opportunity to receive an academic scholarship, and of course football!
Favorite part of your position: Getting to know the women of this chapter better.
Best sisterhood story: Freshman year I was sick with strep throat and a double ear infection and my big skipped all her classes to bring me soup and spent hours with me at the student health center making sure I was okay.
Future goals: One day I would want to become a VP of HR recruiting at a large corporate company or start my own recruiting company for high level employees.
Fun fact about you: I won the California state fair twice for ceramic sculptures.
VP Finance – Katie Slaughter
Hometown: O’Fallon, IL
Major: Elementary Education
Why Alabama?: The campus is absolutely beautiful! The size may seem overwhelming at first, but it’s so easy to make it feel small. I run into people from my home-town all the time!
Favorite Part of Your Position: I’ve been able to meet more girls within our chapter! This position has allowed me to build friendships I never would have had otherwise!
Best Sisterhood Story: Over fall break, two other DG’s and I road-tripped home for the weekend! We drove all through the night and didn’t get into town until 5 AM, but it was amazing. We made so many memories that I will cherish forever!
Future Goals: I plan to student-teach abroad my senior year, and then hopefully decide if teaching in a foreign country is what I want to do for my career!
Fun Fact About You: I’m afraid of ladybugs! (They’re gross and creepy, ok?)
VP Membership – Caroline Hudson
Hometown: Spanish Fort, AL
Major: Economics, Finance, and Marketing
Why Alabama?: I really enjoyed the atmosphere when I visited campus, and it is also a good distance from home- not too close but not too far. I’ve also been raised an Alabama fan. (My mother would not have written the check to Auburn, just kidding!)
Favorite part of your position: The best part about my position is that I get to see the results of all the hard work my team and I put in when we get a new member class on bid day. It is an amazing feeling knowing you are responsible for continuing the legacy of our chapter for Delta Gamma.
Best sisterhood story: One of my favorite sisterhood stories was getting to attend Delta Gamma Institute in February where I got to meet tons of other DGs from different chapters. Being able to bond instantly without ever meeting before just reassured me how strong our sisterhood is. I still keep up with the girls I met, and I look forward to visiting them during football season.
Future goals: I would like to work in the finance industry as an investment analyst. I would also love to be an advisor for a Delta Gamma chapter one day.
Fun fact about you: I’ve met Nick Saban twice.
VP Foundation – Olivia Lake
