Sigma Phi Omega

Sisterhood begins with you

National Board

The Sigma Phi Omega National Board was founded in May 1998 at the Third Annual Convention in San Diego, California.  The National Board was formed to serve as a governing body for all chapters in order to create a foundation that would further our internal strength, create an environment that would nurture leadership through sisterhood, and to lead the sorority into a bright future.

The National Board is comprised of both actives and alumni of Sigma Phi Omega.  Every active chapter is represented in the National Board by a National Ambassador.  The National Ambassador is an active member of the sorority who is chosen to serve as a liaison and representative for her chapter.  The executive cabinet consists of alumni who hold the positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, California Governor, Texas Governor, and Philanthropy Chair.

Brittany Tom Sun - President

Hello there!  I grew up in Sacramento and moved to Long Beach in 2011 to attend CSULB to earn my BA in Fashion Merchandising.  Shortly after I earned my MBA from CSUDH with an HR Management concentration.  I'm currently a Business Consultant in the insurance industry and I help insurance Agents with business development, marketing, staffing and underwriting.  I also coach competitive gymnastics part-time in Orange County and spend the spring time traveling with my team to competitions around Southern California.  

Since joining Sigmas in 2011, I never dreamed that I would be serving on National Board, let alone a third year National Board President.  During my active-ship, I held positions such as Alumni Chair, Secretary, Vice President and President.  After graduation I was CA Governor for two years before taking on the President role.  One of the highlights of being part of this organization is seeing the girls' transformations from when they first join, to becoming confident, outgoing women.  Since joining, I've had a really rewarding experience as a Sigma, and I hope that others that join will also have the same positive experience that I did.

Victoria Nguyen - Vice President

Hello! I crossed Fall 2014, Alpha Class, at Kappa Chapter. I am from Wylie, TX and I graduated in 2017 with a B.S. in Biochemistry. Then, I received my M.S. in Medical Sciences from the University of North Texas Health Science Center in 2018. Now, I am currently pursuing my medical degree at Paul L. Foster School of Medicine. During my undergrad, I had the opportunities of serving as Philanthropy Chair, Graphics Chair, Recruitment Chair, and President.  This amazing sisterhood has become such an integral part of my life that not only helped me grow as a woman, but also gave me the greatest support system and relationships that continue to enrich my life. I love watching my sisters experience all the amazing things this strong and empowering sisterhood has to offer. I am indebted to the invaluable opportunities and experiences Sigma Phi Omega has provided me, which inspires me to continue giving back to this sorority in every way I can. I am excited to continue serving on National Board to help build a stronger community for my current and future sisters!

Emily Nguyen - Secretary

Hello! My name is Emily Nguyen and I crossed at the University of Houston, Fall 2012. I was a sophomore when I crossed and I couldn't have asked for a better time to join sigmas. I was active every year during my college career since joining; some positions that I've held include President ('15-16), Treasurer (Spring 15), and New Member Director (Spring 17). I was also President (Spring 15) of the governing council - Multicultural Greek Council. I graduated Spring 2017 with a Bachelor's in English. I owe it to Sigmas for helping me grow into the woman I am today. This is my second year on National Board and I'm super excited to be here. I know as a National Board executive I'll be able to continue learning and helping sisters grow into strong, confident women before me.

Teresa Solano - Treasurer

Hi everyone, my name is Teresa Solano. I crossed SP 14 at Southern Methodist University. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Physiology and Sports Management. I currently work at Ambit Energy. I joined my junior year second semester, and even though I was super late in the game I am still very passionate about being a Sigma. During my undergrad career as a Sigma, I held the positions of National Ambassador, New Member Director and President as well as being a delegate for the Multicultural Greek Council. Apart from Sigma’s, I’m an active board member of SMUs Hispanic Alumni Board. During my free time I love spending time with my dogs, traveling and binge-watching shows on Netflix.

Kristin-Alexis Fanto - Philanthropy Chair

Hello, my name is Kristin and I recently graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Science in Finance and a minor in Accounting. Currently, I work full-time as an accountant in Downtown San Diego for Hilton, a global hospitality company, where I’ve been employed since my senior year of college. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, so to leave my home to further my studies in a brand new city was terrifying at first. Once Sigmas became a part of my life, however, I gradually developed the skills to navigate these last four years of college with confidence. I am forever grateful to all the women who I met through this organization that had become the family I was seeking. Throughout my college career, I was heavily involved in Sigmas and held the positions of Academic Chair (2016-17), Career Mentor (2017-18), and President (2018-19). With all the knowledge I gained from holding these positions, I worked hard to support three generations of new members flourish into greater women before I graduated. Ultimately, this sisterhood has a special place in my heart because with its guidance and challenges, I experienced a greater understanding of my capabilities. I would love to see more young women discover the strengths they never knew they possessed, which is why I continue to give back to this sorority. As one of the newest alumnae to be inducted into National Board, I’m very excited to embark on this new chapter of my Sigma career. Wish me luck!

Sara Chen - California Governor

Hello, I'm Sara. I crossed Fall 2014, Beta Tau class, at the University of Southern California, Alpha Chapter. I was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan, so it comes as no surprise that I speak English with a Taiwanese accent. It was Sigmas that challenged me to go beyond my limitations despite my background. Being a Sigma has helped me acknowledge my potential as a leader and as a person. I served as President, New Member Director, Academic Chair, Fundraising Chair, Historian, and Pin Captain during my four years in college. I am extremely honored to serve my second term as the California Governor and privileged to work closely with each executive board member to further the goals of our sorority, all while upholding the values of Sigmas. I had no idea that being part of Sigmas would provide me with boundless opportunities, unforgettable memories, and the truest of friendships, but now I couldn't imagine my life without it! I am forever grateful to be part of such a beautiful sorority that taught me how to face challenges in the real world, and I look forward to this upcoming year and to see Sigmas continue to build a stronger sisterhood.

Alina Ha - Texas Governor

I joined Sigmas during the fall of 2015 while I was a freshman at The University of Texas at Dallas. I recently graduated in May 2019 with a B.S. in Human Resource Management. Over the course of my college career, I served as Social Chair, Vice President External, Vice President Internal, and President for my chapter, as well as Director of Finance for the Multicultural Greek Council. I’m currently employed at an insurance company as a Human Resources Generalist. This sisterhood is incredibly special and I’m extremely grateful for all that it’s given me. Through Sigmas, I have been able to create cherishable memories, find my future bridesmaids, learn the power of my voice, develop my leadership skills, and so much more. This is my first year on National Board and my goal as Texas Governor is to use my experience and knowledge to build and connect all of the chapters in the state of Texas, because I want to give back as much as I’ve been given. I’m looking forward to see all of the great things that Sigmas has in store for everyone!
