Our founder's recognized dedication, intelligence, and commitment in one another and they also understood the potential of the college women who would follow in their footsteps. Zeta Phi's executive board highlights only of few of our many leading women. 

CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Hi guys! I‘m Lizzy Kovach, Chief Executive Officer of the Zeta Phi chapter! I am currently in my second year here at Pepperdine, and am working to complete my degree in Economics. I will be interning at Goldman Sachs, and I look forward to pursuing a career in Investment Banking. I love this university and all the cool experiences it’s allowed me— from picking up surfing, to working for a hand model, to worshipping on the beach, and every other random thing in between! Additionally, I have enjoyed working on Inter-Club Council as VP of Finance, and my involvement with American Enterprise Institute on campus. I love this sisterhood and wouldn’t be the person I am today without the support of all these leading women, and I'm beyond grateful for the opportunity to lead this chapter.

CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER

Hi everyone! I am Emily Tran, Chief Operations Officer of Kappa Alpha Theta. After studying in Shanghai during the entirety of my sophomore year, I will be continuing my studies in International Business. I’m from Fremont, CA and came to Pepperdine without any previous knowledge of Greek life. On campus, I work in the International Programs office as the Shanghai Ambassador and serve as the pledge educator of Delta Sigma Pi—one of the professional business fraternities on campus. In addition, I am one of the Alumni Liaisons on the Pepperdine Ambassadors Council. I could not be more humbled and excited to serve alongside such intelligent and passionate women that not only bring out the best in me, but strive to strengthen the community in our sisterhood. My love is continuously growing for this chapter and these girls, and I cannot wait to see what this year has in store for us.

CHIEF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS OFFICER

Hi! I’m Christina Stratton, a second-year Psychology student at Pepperdine. As Chief External Affairs Officer, I serve as the liaison between our chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta and the rest of the community. In addition to being the CEAO, I am also part of the Great Books Program at Pepperdine. I’m an anchor for Good Morning Malibu, a Psychology research assistant, and soon I will add “Pure Barre Instructor” to my list of job titles. I love dancing, Beyonce, and I am a self proclaimed foodie. Theta has blessed me with countless friends who share my same values, so I’m excited for the opportunity to represent them as I coordinate philanthropy events, service work, and giving.

Hi! My name is Shelby and I am beyond excited to serve as the Chief Learning Officer for Theta this year! I was born and raised in LA and I am a Psychology major here at Pepperdine. I just spent the last semester studying abroad in Italy. In my free time, I like to surf, exercise, hang out with friends, read, travel, and listen to music. As the Zeta Phi chapter’s CLO, I coordinate member educational development opportunities, and encourage members to strive towards leadership, inclusiveness, and wellness. Because of Theta, I have met some of my greatest friends and support system. I cannot wait for this year!
