VERA CORNELL -TREASURER - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Vera CornellVera Cornell is an explant from the West Coast who made it as far as Milwaukee before settling in for long winters. A graduate from Marquette University with a Biomedical Engineering degree, she found her way into the world of Quality and fell in love with the best quality possible and continuous improvement mentality that comes with the territory. She now works as a Quality Engineer for Charter Wire in downtown Milwaukee.

Vera tried her hand monitoring finances while active in her chapter and felt it was a great way to apply her geek-level fondness for numbers while still being a productive member of society.  Once she graduated, she felt as if something was missing: wanting to give back to the organization that had been so welcoming and accepting of her and sisters she met along the way. A.O.E made room for her again, and she is currently acting as Treasurer on the IEB. She enjoys working to further develop Alpha Omega Epsilon’s programming and financial stoutness as a way to continue to promote and support our mission where we improve the world in our own way.

Kathryn found her place in college amongst her sisters of the Beta Iota chapter of Alpha Omega Epsilon. She worked diligently behind the scenes to create a solid foundation for the chapter and mentor the younger sisters so that the chapter would flourish after the founding members graduated. Not quite ready to let go of Alpha Omega Epsilon after graduating college, Kathryn has served as an advisor and eventually working her way up to being the Interchapter Relations Officer on the IEB. She enjoys looking at the bigger picture of the organization and working for the betterment of the Sorority while making sure that the chapters have the resources necessary to continue to be successful.
