Marissa Pecora

Chapter President

Hey everyone! My name is Marissa and I'm the current Chapter President of Alpha Xi here at ERAU! I've always enjoyed being very involved with my chapter. The first semester as a sister I served as our Recording Secretary, then as New Member Orientation Chair, before taking my current position. I am a Florida girl at heart - I love the heat and the beaches! You can find me at work in the undergraduate research center or chatting with my friends on campus. I have a bunch of hobbies including crafting, going to the beach, staying active any way possible, and just doing anything with my sisters!

Paige Arbutina

Chapter Life Vice President

Hey everyone! My name is Paige and I’m the Chapter Life Vice President. I love my position because I get to encourage the bonds of sisterhood while planning fun events to bring us all closer to grow as a chapter. Being surrounded and accepted by my sisters has given me a second home here. A little bit about me: When I’m not with sisters, you can find me flying the skies. I’m a big aviation fan and my goal is to be an airline pilot in the future. I’m from Raleigh, North Carolina and I love my southern hometown. I am also the secretary for ERAU’s swim team, and a member of ALPA Ace. I look forward to football season annually and I enjoy enoing in the trees with a good book anytime of the year. Alpha Xi Delta has taught me to be well rounded and confident as a leader.

Programs Vice President

My name is Stephania Couto and I'm the Programs VP for the Theta Omicron chapter of Alpha Xi Delta. I owe so much to this organization for allowing me to develop the best version of myself, while doing it alongside my amazing sisters. As Programs VP I feel that I can help motivate my sisters to grow as individuals and become more involved in the community. Flying, running, and traveling is what makes me feel alive.

Halle Pitner

Recording Secretary

My name is Halle Pitner and I am currently the Recording Secretary for the Theta Omicron chapter.. I was raised in the South and I’m proud to be a Florida girl. College is proving to be the most exciting time of my life and much of that is due to my Alpha Xi Delta sisters, they are truly my home away from home. Every day I feel challenged to be the best version of myself in every aspect in both my social and academic life. When things get hard I relax by doing yoga, crafting, and going to the beach. I am a finance accounting major and though challenging, older sisters have been by my side the entire way. There’s not a day that goes by that I’m not thankful for this sisterhood pushing me to grow in courage, graciousness, and peace.
