Pi Beta Phi is pleased to introduce the 11 outstanding members serving as our 2021–2022 Leadership Development Consultants (LDCs). We look forward to all they will accomplish working with our chapters and empowering our sisterhood!   

Elisabeth Braun, Colorado Gamma 

Traveling Leadership Development Consultant 

Why did you want to become an LDC? 

When an LDC visited my chapter, they helped me feel appreciated and realize the work I was doing made a difference. I hope to help chapter leaders feel the same way! 

What do you consider to be the most valuable thing you own?  

My camera and photo albums! I love looking at old pictures and videos and I will always hold those memories close to my heart. 

What is one item on your bucket list?  

I want to travel to Finland, stay in a glass igloo and see the northern lights!   

 

Becca Crosby, Texas Eta 

Traveling Leadership Development Consultant 

What is something you are looking forward to this upcoming year?  

I’m looking forward to visiting new chapters, campuses and states while meeting members who share my passion for Pi Beta Phi. 

What is your favorite Pi Phi memory? 

During the Texas winter storm, my Pi Phi sisters and I warmed up under our blankets while reflecting on our collegiate experience and playing board games. Weturned a difficult situation into something we could fondly look back on. 

One food item I could never give up is … chips and queso! 

 

Katie Dial, Idaho Alpha 

Traveling Leadership Development Consultant 

What do you want to accomplish this year as an LDC? 

I want to empower our members to feel confident in their roles and as servant leaders. I want to equip officers with the tools and resources to accomplish their duties and thank them for giving back to the chapter.  

What do you consider to be the most valuable thing you own?  

My espresso machine — I love coffee and make it every day. I love the practice of doing something daily; my morning ritual prepares me for the day ahead. 

My favorite book is … Untamed by Glennon Doyle. 

 

 

Jordan Freudenberg, Delaware Alpha  

Resident Leadership Development Consultant at Florida Eta 

What do you want to accomplish as an RLDC? 

I want to remind every collegian of their courage and strength. I hope to empower them to accomplish their goals and support them in their journeys. 

What do you consider to be the most valuable thing you own?  

A camera I received from my parents in eighth grade. At the time, I was obsessed with taking pictures because I liked the idea of “documenting” my life. I still have the camera and take it everywhere I can to photograph my travels, friends and family. 

My most used emoji … đź¤

What was your favorite campus activity in college? 

I loved being a tour guide because I was able to learn more about the university and share my love for UConn with potential students.
