Taylor Pori

President

I am a fourth year Business Entrepreneurship major from Las Vegas, Nevada. I am a fierce advocate of spin class, a shoe hoarder extraordinaire, and will always say yes to paying extra for guac. Sigma Kappa has given me lifelong friendships and amazing opportunities for personal growth. These women continually inspire me every day as they thrive in upholding our core values.

Carly Kennedy

Executive Vice President

I am a senior Liberal Studies major from Long Beach, CA. Sigma Kappa has become my home away from home and I feel so blessed to be surround by such an amazing group of women. My sisters are my support system and the friendships I have made will last a lifetime.

Nicoletta Rusinek

Vice President of Membership

Hiii everyone! I'm a fourth year Ag Business student from Orange County, CA. I've always LOVED to travel but when it comes to SLO you can't pay me to leave, and the main reason for that is Sigma Kappa. I was ecstatic with the idea of going to college, like every other 18 year old girl.. but I had no clue that I would find friendships so strong, special and everlasting. Being around these girls gives me the opportunity strive and reach for my goals knowing I have a 230+ army of support behind me. I honestly could not imagine myself surrounded by a more accepting and dependable group.

Paige Cross

Vice President of New Member Education

I'm a senior journalism major with a concentration in public relations and minors in ethnic studies and media arts & technology (a mouthful, I know). I grew up in a navy family -- which makes the, "Where are you from?" question a little hard to answer. Growing up and moving around every six months to two years has made me cherish things that "feel" like home: wherever my parents are, good food, my favorite movies and, since 2012, Sigma Kappa. Sigma Kappa has been such an incredible part of my college experience and my life. In this house, I've made friendships like I've never experienced before. The women in this chapter inspire me and delight me every single day. They're strong, confident, courageous, brilliant, hilarious and amazing -- I feel truly lucky to be able to call myself their friend and sister. To me, Sigma Kappa is more than a "home away from home;" it's a home and a feeling that I will carry with me for life.

Kristin Lundeen

Vice President of Scholarship

I am a second year Psychology student from Granite Bay, California. I will never pass up an invite to the beach, an acai date, or an excuse to travel. Now that I have completed one year at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, I could not be more thankful for choosing this school with its beautiful surroundings, choosing to be a part of Sigma Kappa, and meeting so many great people along the way. Growing up with my mom as a best friend, having a close group of girl friends who each have their own unique ambition, and watching my older sister grow to be an independent professional, have all urged me to want to continue finding strong, confident women with whom to share my life. Sigma Kappa has introduced me to even more amazing women for whom I am grateful to know!

Dani Barsa

Vice President of Philanthropic Services

​I am a fourth year biochemistry major from Orange County, California. Eventually I plan to enter the medical field as a physician assistant and hopefully volunteer in third world countries for the first few years of my career. I have always had a passion for volunteering and giving back which is why I ran for Vice President of Philanthropic Services. The opportunities Sigma Kappa has given me are endless and the friendships I have made are timeless. I am so thankful I can give back to the sorority that has giving me so much.

Jackie Baldwin

Vice President of Finance

I am a senior Business Administration major with a concentration in Finance and minor in Economics. I grew up in San Francisco and find myself embracing Bay Area lingo a little too much in San Luis Obispo. Sigma Kappa has played a huge role in my college experience: from meeting my best friends, networking with alumnae, and always having someone to split a Domino's pizza with. I am truly blessed to be part of such an incredible chapter with beautiful women inside and out!

Jennifer Jacobs

Vice President of Programming

I am a fourth year Agribusiness Major from Sacramento, California. There’s nothing I love more than sushi dates, getting lost on random weekend adventures, and car rides listening to Taylor Swift. You can find me spending most of my time watching the sunset at the beach or country concerts. I found my second home here in SLO with the most inviting and friendly community I have ever been a part of. Sigma Kappa has given me the opportunity to embrace my leadership and made me into the confident, dedicated, and passionate individual I am today. It’s a blessing to have so many amazing young women that inspire me everyday and I find comfort I knowing the support me no matter what. I love this unique group of women because not one of us is exactly the same and we all seem to bring out the best in each other. My experience at Cal Poly wouldn’t be the same without these truly amazing and beautiful women that I’m lucky to know for a lifetime!

Madison Patino

Vice President of Alumnae Relations

I am a senior Graphic Communication student from Turlock, CA.I have a passion for all things creative and you can always find me with my camera in my hand. I grew up in a small town where everyone seemed to know everyone, so moving four hours away to Cal Poly where I wouldn’t know anyone was very scary for me. Thankfully, I found just the right place to call my home away from home: Sigma Kappa. I truly could not imagine my time at Cal Poly without this amazing organization that has given me endless opportunities and friendships that will last forever!

Mallory Soares

Vice President of Communication

I am a fourth year Nutrition major and Psychology minor from Fresno, CA. I am a huge dog lover, self-proclaimed foodie, and love all things outdoors. I love to hike, go to San Luis Obispo's famous farmer's market, and take advantage of the beautiful beaches here. Sigma Kappa has blessed me with the most amazing friends and support system and has made Cal Poly truly my home away from home.

Megan Woodward

Sisterhood Chair

Hi there! I am a fourth year (yikes how did that happen!) at Cal Poly majoring in Communication Studies from the Napa Valley. I’m fiercely adventurous but need to be in bed by 10 pm. If you want to talk about Friday Night Lights just message me because I can talk about Tim Riggins all day. I love running and all things sweet so it counterbalances itself. It’s all about a well-rounded life am I right? Although I am allergic to avocado these ladies still invite me to Chipotle with them (sisterhood right there). In all seriousness, Sigma Kappa has been a true blessing for me and my experiences here in SLO. What would I do without these ladies? They are my backbone and my everyday cheering crew. One heart, one way always.

Megan Black

Social Chair

I am a third year Wine & Viticulture major at Cal Poly SLO who loves hiking, the ocean, and all things music. I joined a sorority to find fun, spunky girls like me and I found that in SK. I could not be more proud to call this kind-heated, genuine group of girls my sisters. I have found my best friends that I could not imagine life without

Amanda Mertens

Panhellenic Delegate

I am a third year majoring in Agricultural Business from Sonoma, CA. Sigma Kappa has blessed me with my lifelong best friends and I feel so lucky to be surrounded by such unique, spontaneous, compassionate, and strong women who bring out the best in me. My time at Cal Poly and life beyond college would be so different without this group of girls as my constant support system.

Baylie Duncan

Ritual Chair

I study Agricultural Business at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. I'm a full time music fan, dog lover, and Mexican food enthusiast. As a Sigma Kappa, I am lucky to constantly be surrounded by compassionate, beautiful, and strong women who are all special in their own way. My life has been completely changed by my sisters - I could not be more proud to be a Sigma Kappa.
