A LETTER FROM OUR CHAPTER ADVISOR
Hello! My name is Mary Mikko and I am so happy to be a Co-Chapter Advisor for Beta Delta.
I graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2016 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Criminal Justice. After graduating I completed a year of post grad volunteer work through the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Mobile Alabama. I volunteered as the Intake Assistant at the South Alabama Volunteer Lawyers Program. In August of 2017 I moved back home to Traverse City Michigan where I began working at The Home Depot. In 2022 I was promoted to a Regional Inventory Supervisor and I moved to Saint Clair Shores where I proudly call that place home now.
I have been a volunteer with Gamma Phi Beta for the last six years as a Collegiate Chapter Supervisor before transitioning into this role. I also hold a position as a Risk and Policy Specialist. I have enjoyed my time volunteering as I enjoy being able to connect and mentor the women I work with. As a Collegiate Chapter Supervisor I was able to work closely with chapter executive boards and their advisory boards. I built relationships and connections to the women as well as the chapter. As the chapter advisor I hope to continue to build those connections and relationships with not just the women of the chapter but those that support them. I want these women to succeed not just as a chapter but individually in their personal lives. I believe in transparency and will do my best to always be honest and open with them.
When I joined Gamma Phi Beta I didn’t just join a social organization but I also found a family that was bigger than I could ever imagine. As a freshman I met women that would help me get through the next four years and beyond. I am still friends with those I met night one of recruitment and I couldn’t ask for any better friends. This sisterhood is amazing and a great place for women in any walk of life. It is a change and place for women to work together through school, personal, and work life and help find the perfect balance for everything. It sets you up for leadership roles, life skills, and friendships for life. I am excited to see what you get out of our amazing organization and sisterhood.
