"I think I would be a very different person without this experience. Working as a consultant forms a unique independence and ability to adapt that only people that share this experience can truly understand. From traveling alone all over the country to facilitating meetings with high-ranking professionals and frequently speaking in front of large groups, nearly every skill nurtured in this position is transferable to any career. It's also worth noting that every position I've held since my days on the road for Phi Psi has come from a Fraternity connection of some sort."
"My favorite experience is hard to pinpoint but the cumulative experience of working with brothers across the country to improve individually was the most rewarding part of the job. I had plenty of mentors along my path and I always hoped that I was able to do that for some of the brothers I worked with."

"Most men whom I've met that worked as leadership consultants all had different reasons in deciding to do so. While your motivation may vary, I would say it's very important to have a deep passion for the Fraternity and an intense drive to help your Brothers around the country. Growing up, I was told that if you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life. I never felt as if I worked for Phi Psi."
