Omega Xi Chapter at University of Cincinnati

Kappa Delta

Our Officers

Lauren Shawgo

President

“Hey there! My name is Lauren Shawgo and I am beyond lucky to serve Kappa Delta at the University of Cincinnati as the Chapter President! I joined Omega Xi in the fall of 2014 and have continued to fall more in love with it everyday since. I am a fourth year pursuing my Nursing degree, and I will be graduating with my BSN in the Spring. As you can imagine being President can be pretty busy, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! When I'm not in class or working, you can almost always catch me hanging with sisters or just relaxing at the house! I owe so much of who I am and what my college experience has been to Kappa Delta and I will forever be grateful for the memories I've made, and more importantly the lifelong friendships it has given me. Serving as Omega Xi's Chapter President has been incredible, and I am so lucky to have the opportunity to give back to the chapter that has given me everything! If not for KD, I would have missed out on way too many belly-aching laughs, endless smiles and memories to last a lifetime. Being a part of Kappa Delta at UC has truly been unforgettable.

Samie Moriarty

Vice President Member Education

Hi!! My name is Samie Moriarty and I have the pleasure of serving as Kappa Delta's Vice President of Member Education on Omega Xi's Executive Council! I was born and raised in Cincinnati and I am a junior majoring in Psychology here at UC. As VP-ME, it is my responsibility to educate the entire chapter as well as the new members, with programming that encourages personal growth and development. When I’m not planning Bid Day or preparing to welcome our future PC 17 (YAY) I love spending time with my friends, camping, or planning my next adventure. KD has brought me more lifelong friendships, love, and acceptance than I could’ve ever hoped for. I couldn’t imagine calling any other group of women my people, or anywhere else my home. As always, go greek, go confidently and go cats!

Rowen Durban

Vice President Membership

Hi, there! My name is Rowen and I am currently a fifth year here at U of Cincinnati — studying graphic design. When I’m not pulling all nighters at DAAP I spend as much time as I can with my sisters at my favorite place, Kappa Delta. I am a two term officer, currently serving as Vice President of Membership, which has taught more than I ever thought possible. Kappa Delta has pushed to do more, help more, and be the best version of myself. On any given day you can find me strolling from the KD house to my classes on campus, always with coffee in hand. You’ll also most likely find me taking my new puppy on a walk, adventuring or just spending some quality time with my sista friends. Kappa Delta has been a truly unforgettable experience and I can't wait to meet our new sisters in September. As always, Go Cats!

Bess Brown

Vice President Operations

Hiya! I’m Bess and I currently serve as KD’s Vice President of Operations! I’m from The Land and love everything related to Cleveland, the greatest city in the world. I’m in my senior year at UC studying psychology with a minor in art therapy. As VP-O, I oversee all of Omega Xi’s operations including managing our appointed officers, our calendar, and facilitating and celebrating our successes! My dream job is to become an art therapist, and I love being organized and helping to manage the bigger picture which is why this role is perfect for me! I’m so happy that in my four years I’ve had the chance to be a part of the Panhellenic community, Kappa Delta, and now Council. I’m sad that my time in Omega Xi is ending but I know the memories and friendships I've made will last a lifetime! Catch me walking around campus in my hot dog costume :) 

Haylee Martinko

Vice President Community Service

Hi hi! My name's Haylee but everyone in chapter calls me Tinko! My role as VP Community Service keeps me busy planning events year round benefiting our philanthropies, Prevent Child Abuse America and the Girl Scouts, as well as engaging our chapter in community outreach opportunities! I am a senior studying Urban Planning and I hope to one day work in non-profit housing. You can usually catch me running around DAAP, hanging out with my friends, or taking a nap on the common room couches. I am grateful for everything that KD has given me throughout my collegiate time and am looking forward to embracing every second of my last year with these funny/crazy/genuine sistas of mine. go cats! && aot

Julianna Castellanos

Vice President Public Relations

Hello there! My name is Juliana Castellanos and I am currently serving as VP Public Relations here at UC! I was born in Cincinnati and grew up in Mason, OH and I am a senior studying Special Education! Helping kids has always been a true passion of mine and I hope to be teaching in an inner city school district by this time next year. Kappa Delta is a such an important part of my life that has changed me for the better. Four years ago I would never have pictured myself  taking on a leadership position but I am so thankful that I took a leap outside my comfort zone and I got the opportunity to serve on Council, with amazing sisters by my side! I've never been so proud of an organization and all the values it stands for. Forever loyal to the green and white! 

Natalie Paul

Vice President Standards

Hey guys! My name is Natalie Paul, but everyone calls me Nat Paul. I am a fourth year studying computer science and I am lucky enough to serve as Omega Xi's Vice President Standards. As VP-S, I oversee all social functions and academics, as well as making sure all the wonderful women in this organization uphold Kappa Delta's standards. I am a huge LOTR and GOT fan (I'm cool, I swear ;)) and coffee is my life. Kappa Delta has introduced me to so many extraordinary girls and I wouldn't be where I am today without their endless support and love. 

Sarah Habel

Secretary

Hi, everyone! My name is Sarah and I am a senior here at UC.  I am studying marketing with the hopes of one day becoming an event planner.  On campus you can find me in class, at Starbucks (thanks for getting me through college), or at the KD house.  When I’m not at school I’m out with my friends or hanging out with my family, usually watching whatever Cincinnati sports team is playing at the time.  Being a part of the Panhellenic community has helped me to meet so many amazing women and given me incredible opportunities, including being able to serve as the 2017 Secretary for Omega Xi!  I am so grateful for all that KD has given me these past 3 years and I can’t wait to enjoy every second of my senior year with my sisters by my side!

Emma Hundley

Vice President Finance

Hey! I'm Emma, Omega Xi's money gal. I'm a third year Marketing major with a dream of being able to assist and expand small businesses, right here in Cincinnati. My passions include obsessing over Game of Thrones and playing with my crazy cat, Salem. Kappa Delta prides itself on a uniquely inclusive experience, from sisterhoods to intramurals and everything in between! My sisters accept me for the fun-loving, goofball that I am and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.  

Bayley Labus

Panhellenic Delegate

Hey guys, it’s Bayley, and I am Kappa Delta’s Panhellenic Delegate! I am a junior studying Middle School Education. When I’m not spending time with my incredible sisters, you can usually find me either taking a nap or eating Pieology. As Panhellenic Delegate, I am the connection between our chapter and the rest of the Greek community. Like the musical legend Hannah Montana once said, “You get the best of both worlds”. I get to be a leader in both communities, and it has allowed me to make so many connections and meet a lot of wonderful people. I’m am so thankful for all the experience being on council has given me, and I can’t wait to see what else Kappa Delta has in store more me. So name someone more passionate about the Panhellenic community…I’ll wait.
