Hey everyone! My name is Bre Battaglia and I am honored to say that I am the president of Sigma Kappa, Kappa Xi! I was born and raised in Las Vegas and decided to come to UNR for my collegiate years. I'm now a junior at the University of Nevada, Reno studying veterinary medicine and I plan to pursue my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree following the completion of my undergraduate. Last year I served as Vice President of Standards and Values and feel as though my previous position has perfectly prepared me for this new role. As president I am able to work closely alongside all of our officers, preside over all chapter meetings and ritual ceremonies, and get the opportunity to collaborate with our fellow Panhellenic sisters. I couldn't be more excited to lead the amazing women of this chapter and see where this next year takes us all. LISK
