Emily Walburn

Vice President Member Education

Hi my name is (Emily) Walburn! I’m a second-year International Affairs and Political Science major with a certificate in War, Peace, and Security. One of my favorite experiences at UC was my study abroad trip to Belgium and The Netherlands exploring international institutions; if you ever want to hear about the European Union, NATO, or how good Belgian waffles are, I’m your girl. After I graduate from UC I want to continue my education and pursue a law degree. KD has given me a strong community and support system and I want everyone else to have that as well!!

Currently, I am on co-op at a non-profit called College Hill Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation. I do a lot of work with rebranding their social media and website plus am learning so much about community development and corporate site redevelopment. I love sports, specifically soccer and volleyball and am your go-to girl to talk about anything related to sustainability in the business world and in a university setting. Ask me anything about Recruitment!

Hey everyone! I am a fourth-year Mechanical Engineering major at the University of Cincinnati and co-op with Turner Construction. I work on their engineering team and my favorite site that I worked at was Union Terminal in downtown Cincinnati on UT's renovation/restoration. I mainly oversee the installation of mechanical systems, but lots of other various things in the MEP world. I also work at Bogart's in Clifton during the school semesters. I love to travel, listen to podcasts, take care of my plants and have a fish tank with tropical fish. I am also the president of Serve Beyond Cincinnati at UC and am a director at Southwest Ohio HOBY.

Once I graduate college, I hope to work for a magazine or news company, while getting the opportunity to travel and live a fulfilling life.

Megan Wells

Secretary

Hello! My name is Megan Wells, I am a Junior currently studying Marketing and sales in the college of business at UC! I enjoy drawing and painting as well as watching Netflix with my roommates! I love organizing things, especially the KD house. I am so thankful I joined Kappa Delta because of all the great sisters I have gained and all the leadership opportunities I have. I would have to say the moment I realized how much KD means to me is one of the first nights I moved into the KD house and there was a large group of us laughing until late at night in the common room. I felt so at home in that moment and continue to thank KD for bringing me so much joy and laughter!

Mikayla Wing

Vice President Finance

Sydney Bahr

Panhellenic Delegate

Hi all! I am Sydney Bahr, a second-year pre-med student. I am currently working on a Deaf Studies certificate as well as a Developmental Disabilities certificate. My ultimate career goal is to be a flight surgeon in the army so I can save the lives of those that protect our freedom. Kappa Delta has helped me to become the person I am today. When I started college, I was mentally in the worst place I have ever been and Kappa Delta took me in and gave me my self-confidence back and pushed me to be the best person I can be. I want to be this person for someone else and lead KD to continue to be a safe place for many more future sisters.
