Welcome new and returning Shining Arrows!
It is a true honor to serve as President of the Pi Phi Shining Arrows group within the Alumnae Club. Whether you are a returning member or new to our group, I invite you join this fun and diverse group of women will allow you to connect friends, both old and new!
Why is our group called “Shining Arrows”? We are all moving in various directions in life but know that time with other Pi Phi’s is always fun and can also be very rewarding. We are single, married, with-kids, without-kids, career-oriented, stay-at-homers… you get the idea. From after-work happy hours to activities with your little ones, the Shining Arrows group is fun for all.
I grew up in Lubbock and attended Texas Tech University where I pledged Pi Beta Phi. After my freshman year, I transferred to The University of Texas at Austin where I truly met some amazing Pi Phis who welcomed me into Texas Alpha. After graduation from UT and receiving an MBA from Texas Tech, I moved to Dallas to pursue career in Finance. It began at KPMG which ultimately lead me to The Neiman Marcus Group. My husband and I married in 2004, had our son in 2009 and our daughter in 2012. Even though I had been in the Dallas area I did not become involved with the Alumnae Club until after becoming a mom. Looking back, I missed out on so much! So many of my close friends are Pi Phis from all around the nation. Please come and join us for friendship, activities and sisterhood this year!
I look forward to getting to know you all!

Shining Arrows members are primarily between the ages of 25 and 45. We are married, unmarried, with and without young children, career women getting new businesses off and running, stay-at-home moms, and multi-tasking experts for all that life brings at this stage! We aim to plan fun events to bring friends and our families together.
Our group meets throughout the year. The Shining Arrows group has many fun activities for young mothers and professionals as well as opportunities to connect with new friends and reconnect with college friends.
If you are interested in getting involved with Pi Phi, reconnecting with college friends, or making new friendships, please join us at one of our many events. We look forward to having another successful year and would love to have new members celebrate the essence of Pi Phi with us.
