Pi Beta Phi
At Clemson University
Chapter Leadership

Chapter President: Caitlin Barkley

"In interviewing for Chapter President, I was motivated to lead our chapter in order to become the premier organization and family I know it can be. The amazing women in our chapter deserve an organization that will inspire, develop, and challenge them as individuals while getting the most out of their college experience."

Vice President of Membership Development: Taylor Miguelino

"My favorite part of being VPMD is that I get to shape our members into premier women and leaders! Through academic support and values-based programming, I hope to give the members of our chapter the tools that they need to succeed after Clemson. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone has the potential to do big things in the world, and nothing makes me happier than seeing my sisters thrive."

Vice President of Finance: Emily Maziarski

Vice President of Housing: Talia Pekari

"I ran for Vice President of Housing because I wanted to be in a leadership position where I could meet all of my sisters and be an available resource to them when needed. I value our sisterhood, and have a lot of ideas on how to strengthen the bond between the girls living on the hall."

Vice President of Event Planning: Darian Bordon

"I was inspired to run for this position first with my previous experience by serving SC Beta as the Sisterhood Events Chair. Being in this position for a whole year, I got to work closely with the VPEP and became very passionate about not only serving the Chapter, but also wanting to make events fun and engaging. One of the main reasons I joined Pi Phi was because of the core values and the importance that is placed on them. I strive to plan and bring sisters together for events that they can be themselves, make stronger relationships with one another, and foster the core values."

Vice President of Communications: Kaitlyn Phillips 

"Since the moment I joined Pi Phi I have always been all in and joining Exec was a no brainer for me! I was inspired to join exec because I wanted to be able to make an impact on the lives of each and every sister in SC Beta. My hope was to learn more about each and every member and to be able to make a positive impact on their Pi Phi experience. I wanted to be able to work with a group of women who I know I can always count on to help me out and who I know will work each and every day to make SC Beta even better than it was the day before! I am most passionate about pleasing every member of this chapter to the best of my abilities! Whether it is featuring them on the social media or creating a t-shirt that people are so excited to receive, my hope is that even the little things go a long way in improving each members Pi Phi experience!"

Vice President of Membership: Savannah Harrelson

"The thing that inspired me to run for this position was going through recruitment last year and realizing how much I fell in LOVE with the whole process!"

Vice President of Fraternity Development: Lindsey Blustein

"I was inspired to run for Vice President of Fraternity Development because I was passionate about Pi Beta Phi's rich history. At 150 years old, we are the first fraternity for women and that is something that I am so proud to be part of and want to inspire others to take pride in as well. I wanted the opportunity to not only be more involved in my chapter but to also give back to the organization that has given me so much. As VPFD I have the privilege of being in charge of initiation and Founder's Day, which are some of the memories that members are going to take with them for the rest of their lives. Being part of something bigger than myself, while also working to make this organization better, has been such an accomplishment." 

Vice President of Philanthropy: Marilyn Hazlett

Taylor Miguelino, Chapter President

Ellicott City, Maryland

I am a completely different person from when I joined Pi Phi three years ago— in the best way possible! To me, it is the members of SC Beta that make SC Beta so great. Each and every sister brings something different to the table and I am honored to have the great responsibility of leading such a diverse and amazing chapter. I hope to inspire and empower my sisters to achieve their highest potential and make their mark in Pi Phi and all over Clemson’s campus. ​​​​​​​

Meghan McGuinness, Vice President of Event Planning

Morristown, NJ

Here is short blurb on my position:

I chose to run for VPEP as one of my favorite parts of this organization is all of the fun events that we host where we are given the opportunity to bond with our sisters. I want to continue creating events that everyone in our chapter can enjoy. I am so excited to work with all of the other talented girls on Exec and to continue to grow this chapter!

Samantha Layne, Vice President of Administration

Scottsdale, AZ

Serving as VPA allows me to use Pi Phi’s values to further enhance our member’s lives. I hope to promote chapter involvement and encourage members to live out our core values while at chapter events and in their daily lives. Pi Phi has helped me grow into the woman I am today and I am excited to see the other ways this chapter shapes my life.  I am fortunate to be able to help our members through their collegiate journey and promote our values to help them make the most of their time in Pi Phi while here at Clemson and beyond.

Courntey Kirshe, Vice President of Communications

Saratoga Springs, New York

The position of Vice President of Communication is a position that I am very passionate about. I am excited to help my chapter and be even more involved in Pi Beta Phi.  Something that inspired me to run for this position is my love for Pi Phi and believing that this position is one that would be a good fit! In the past I have run a few instagrams for businesses and I am excited to put my mark on our social media.  I am also excited to improve alumnae relations and keep them in the loop about all the amazing things that our chapter is doing. I am so thankful for this opportunity and all of the great things the Pi Phi has given me.

Sarah Beth Cobb, Vice President of Fraternity Development

Spartanburg, SC

I was inspired to take on the position of Vice President of Fraternity Development because of my love for the history and traditions Pi Phi holds dear. I have served on our chapter's Fraternity Heritage Committee and have the firsthand knowledge of the duties and responsibilities of VPFD as well as a deep appreciation of Pi Phi and our core values. I hope to serve this chapter by not only maintaining our rich traditions but by creating new, meaningful ones as well. Most importantly, I am so excited to serve my fellow sisters and make a positive, lasting impact in our chapter!

Catie Demaret, VIce President of Member Development

Chicago, Illinois

My name is Catie Demaret and I am serving as the Vice President of Member Development. I chose to apply for VPMD because I am excited about the opportunity to help my sisters with their personal and intellectual growth during their time at Clemson! I hope that our chapter can continue to be successful in our academic endeavors and I want to see SC Beta with one of the highest overall GPAs on campus. I hope to be a valuable resource to all of our members so they can achieve great things in 2019. ​​​​​​​

Taylor Fletcher, Vice President of Membership

Westport, MA

Hey everyone, this year I am serving as Pi Phi’s VP of Membership and I could not be more excited! After working under our VPM last year, I knew I had to take advantage of the opportunity and serve our chapter in this position. I’m most excited about recruitment in the Fall, but besides that I can’t wait for all of the other fun things I will be able to do for our chapter!

Katelyn Sease, Vice President of Philanthropy

Lexington, SC

I was inspired to run for this position because of my passion for our philanthropy Read>Lead>Achieve, which promotes childhood literacy. When going through recruitment, I learned that one in four children cannot read and that number is way too high! My hope for my year in this role is to motivate people around our campus to help Pi Beta Phi make reading a practical goal for all children!

Maria Colon, Vice President of Housing

Hilton Head, South Carolina

I am Maria Colon vice president of housing this year and I chose this position because when I went through roommate troubles the last VPH provided me with a sense of safety and security to accommodate my needs and I was inspired to do this for other girls going through hard times or just wanting to live on the hall in general. My motivations for this position are keeping the hall a place where girls can not only sleep, but have fun, I want to plan events where we can all bond and get to know each other more so that the school year will be the best it can be. I also wish to make PNM's excited to be a part of the sorority by living with their sisters. I want our chapter as a whole to grow with each other through the values we hold dear to our hearts while making memories with each other through the many events and bonding festivities Pi Beta Phi has to offer. With my knowledge and expertise on communication and managing a living space, I want to make all girls comfortable and safe on the hall so that everyone can live happily in the best possible environment.

Kate Weston, Vice President of Finance 

Chagrin Falls, Ohio

I was inspired to choose the position of VPF because I wanted to find ways to become more involved within this chapter. Throughout the past year, I have met some of my best friends who I see will be some of my best friends for life. And because of this experience, I was motivated to make a difference in this chapter, so that every member can feel the same as I do. Not to mention, I get to be apart of such a hardworking Executive Council where I get to become closer with my sisters.
