MEET THE EXECUTIVE BOARD!
Our Executive Board members are made up of smart, caring, creative leaders who have created a special bond with the the Panhellenic community as a whole and of course, each other. Learn a little bit about each board member below, and keep browsing through the rest of our site to learn more about who we are and what we stand for.
Hi, my name is Ari Amato and I am this year's President of the Panhellenic Association. I initially applied to be on Exec about a year and a half ago because I had heard about how being on this board was such a rewarding experience that could not be passed up. I didn't then and I certainly made sure I wouldn't last November, either, when I applied again as my experience on Panhellenic Exec already means everything and more to me. This amazing community proves to show its resiliency in ways that make me incredibly proud to be a part of it, like during our first ever virtual recruitment this past spring as it showed how well Panhellenic women here at UM can work together towards a common goal in the face of adversity. To all Panhellenic Canes both new and old, I am so honored to be your President and I am so excited to see where this year will take us all. PLAM!!
VICE PRESIDENT OF ADMINISTRATION
Hi everyone! I’m Samantha Clayman and I’m the VP of Administration. Being on Panhell Exec, I gained an immense amount of respect for each and every sorority throughout this past recruitment process. I have met the most incredible women through serving on the panhellenic executive board. I joined this executive board because I wanted to expand my community. Even with being a remote student this semester, I am so excited for this year and can’t wait to do amazing things with this group of women.
VICE PRESIDENT OF PROGRAMMING (DIRECTORS)
Hi everyone, my name is Jenn Rojas and I’m the VP of Programming. I’m a current sophomore majoring in psychology and I am super excited to get close with everyone on this panhellenic executive board. I am looking forward to organizing COVD-friendly events this semester so that we are all still able to meet each other and feel a better sense of community within the panhellenic association.
VICE PRESIDENT OF RECRUITMENT
Hi everyone, I’m Marissa Katz and I am the Vice President of Recruitment! I could not be more excited to be a part of Panhell Exec and work with all of the lovely women. I am most excited about getting to interact with girls from all chapters as well as meeting girls who wish to join our panhellenic community. I can’t wait to have an AMAZING year. And as always, PLAM :)
VICE PRESIDENT OF COMMUNICATIONS
Hi guys! My name is Kirra Peery, and I'm from Las Vegas, Nevada. I’m a junior majoring in Marketing and Real Estate, and one thing I love to do is play golf with my family. I’m really looking forward to creating new friendships on Panhell exec this year, and being able to get more firsthand experience with marketing and design work! I'm excited to be able to showcase the incredible sisters we have in this community -- PLAM!
VICE PRESIDENT OF FINANCE
Hi everyone! I’m Sarah Miller and I’m the new VP of Finance. I am originally from Chicago and I am a finance major here at UM. I decided to join Panhell Exec because I wanted to find a way to get involved on campus and help the Greek Community while also getting the chance to meet tons of new women that I would not have met otherwise. It has been so fun getting to know both the old exec and new executive board so far this year and I’m so happy to serve as a member!
VICE PRESIDENT OF RECORDS
Hi, I’m Laurel Schmidt and I am this year’s Panhellenic Association VP of Records. I applied to be on the Panhell Exec Board because I wanted to be a bigger part of the Panhellenic community. Working with folks in different chapters to better the greek community here on campus has been so rewarding. I have since gained a new level of admiration for the 7 incredible sororities throughout my time on E-board thus far. I can’t wait to continue working with this amazing and strong group of people—PLAM.
VICE PRESIDENT OF PHILANTHROPY
Hi everyone! My name is Emi Darquea and I am this year’s VP of Philanthropy. Because I am originally from Ecuador, the concept of greek life was very foreign to me. The panhellenic association has become an integral part of my life because it has helped me find my sense of belonging at UM. I feel like my role as VP Philanthropy does not only embody what my dreams are but to also help myself grow as a leader and an individual. I am so excited to be a part of this executive board.
