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'm currently a business consultant in the insurance industry, and I also coach competitive gymnastics part-time in the South Bay.  Originally from Sacramento, I moved to SoCal in 2011 to attend CSULB.  That same year, I crossed into Sigmas and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.  In 2015, I graduated with my BA in Fashion Merchandising, and will be receiving my MBA from CSUDH in December 2017.   At the chapter level, I've been President, Vice-President, and Secretary just to name a few.  The past two years I was fortunate enough to serve as the National Board CA Governor, and am beyond excited to be the National Board President for 2017-2018.  One of the highlights of being part of this organization is seeing the transformation of the girls 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.

Dora Dianna Cuiriz - Vice President

I graduated from San Diego State University with a B.A. in Psychology. I am currently studying full time towards my Masters in CFT. I am also completing my hours for licensure as an MFT Trainee at a behavioral inpatient facility in San Diego. I coach girls gymnastics at a local gymnastics academy. I was active all four years of undergrad and have held a national board position in the past. I truly believe I wouldn't be where I am if it was not for the constant love, support, and motivation to thrive in my career and personal life that Sigmas has given me. I hope the girls and generations to come gain as much from this amazing sorority that I have as well.

 Mary Kim - Secretary

Hello! I graduated from The University of Texas at Dallas in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and Systems. My full-time occupation is that I work for Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems as a functional IT Business Partner Lead. I also work part-time as an Advanced Repair Technician at Geek Squad, a subsidiary of Best Buy Co., Inc. During my sophomore year in college, I became one of the thirteen founding members who chartered the expansion of what is now currently the 10th chapter (Kappa) of SPO to UT Dallas - earning my beloved letters in the fall of 2013. Since my crossing, I’ve managed to hold chapter-level executive leadership positions such as President (2013-2014) and New Member Director (2016). I believe to consider myself lucky, as I owe much of my personal and professional successes to this sorority. The relationships I’ve made with the lessons that I’ve learned so far is a gift that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I’m excited to serve as your new National Board Secretary, as we have many new and exciting future plans to come. Cheers!

 Teresa Solano - Philanthropy Chair

Hi everyone, my name is Teresa Solano. I crossed SP 14 at Southern Methodist University. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Applied Physiology and Sports Management. I currently work at Viverae a Wellness company located in the heart of Texas. 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. You can see me going to local sister chapter and supporting their events. I even fly out to California to visit some of the chapters as well. I love Sigma Phi Omega and what it stands for and I want future generations to experience the wonderful adventures that come with 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 Sigmas I was also involve with the Korean Student Association and the College Hispanic American Students. During my free time I love spending time with my cute, adorable super needy Border Collie named Princess Mimi.

 Kimberly Long - California Governor

Hello!  I grew up in Los Angeles, California and this past spring, I graduated from the University of Southern California with a B.S. in Business Administration. I joined Sigmas during the fall of 2014 and it has been an incredibly meaningful adventure that has given me memories and friends that I will cherish forever. While active, I held positions such as New Member Educator, Service Chair, Sisterhood Chair, and Recruitment Chair for my chapter, as well as being VP of Scholarship on USC Asian Greek Council. Through this sisterhood, I have found a network of supportive, strong women that I am grateful to know I can turn to long after college. Not only did I find home away from home, but Sigmas also gave me incredible role models to look up to and friends that push me to always strive for more. Being a part of Sigmas has helped me find my voice and offered me opportunities to realize my potential as a leader. As California Governor, I hope to give back to this sisterhood by being a resource to girls all over the country and helping them grow as leaders and as women.

 Victoria Nguyen - Texas Governor

I crossed Fall 2014, Alpha Class, at the University of Texas at Dallas, Kappa Chapter. I am from Wylie, TX and I graduated in May 2017 with a B.S. in Biochemistry. 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 currently a graduate student at the University of North Texas Health Science Center pursuing a master’s degree in Biomedical Science. Although I am a full-time graduate student, I still make time to volunteer for my community and tend to my graphic design hobby. I am excited to serve on National Board to help build a stronger community for my current and future sisters!

 Sonia Kwak- Alumni Chair

I crossed Fall 13, Kappa Chapter Charter Class, and graduated from The University of Texas at Dallas with a degree in Marketing. I am the Marketing Director for Golden International Inc., and co-founder of Project Primitive Creative Consulting. During my time as an active I’ve held the following positions: Social Chair, Inspirational Teacher, Secretary, Sports Coordinator, and Recruitment chair. Sigma Phi Omega has enriched my life with so much light and love from the sisterhood, and chartering Kappa Chapter with my pledge sisters has been such a fruitful and gratifying experience. I’m grateful and proud to know that our sorority is comprised of a variety of inspirational and strong females, and their compassion was integral for me discovering the true adventure of sisterhood that is Sigma Phi Omega. I owe this organization so much for all that it has done for me and my growth during my undergraduate years, so I am thrilled to be able to give back and be a part of the National Board dream team as an alum.
