Alpha Gamma Delta

Delta Kappa Chapter at University of Alberta

Executive Council

Courtney McDonald


Hey, I'm Courtney! I am in my fourth year of a Bachelors of Science with a major in biology and a minor in political science. My favourite thing to do is to curl up in blankets with a hot chocolate and a good movie; I also love all things Disney and Superhero related! I joined the Delta Kappa Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta in Fall 2014. In my three years in chapter I have served as Vice President Scholarship and I am now currently Delta Kappa’s Chapter President! I joined Alpha Gam seeking mentorship in academics and to find connections on this forty-thousand person campus. Alpha Gam gave me just that and more! In actuality, I found my home away from home that is always filled with support I didn't even know that I needed, but am overjoyed to have. Joining a sorority was the best decision I have made thus far; it has provided me with scholastic achievement, amazing leadership opportunities, unwavering and judgement-free support and deep connections that will last way beyond my university career.

Ashley Nelson

VP Member Development

Hi, I’m Ashley and I am Delta Kappa’s newest Vice President Member Development. I am in my third year of a Science Psychology degree with a minor in Economics, as well as my third year in Alpha Gam. One fun fact about me is that sea otters are my favourite animal because they sleep holding hands so that they don’t drift apart; how cute is that? I’m also a huge dog person and am willing to stop at any point to pet a dog. I joined a Women’s Fraternity after seeing how so many different ladies could find their home in the same place. These ladies have truly become my family, supporting me through anything and everything from stage fright to self-doubt. I joined for the connections I can and have formed with individual members and could not be more grateful to have these ladies in my life.

Erika Ammond

VP Scholarship

Hi, I’m Erika! I’m in the Faculty of Nursing, and in my third year. Fun fact? Coffee is love. Coffee is life. I joined Alpha Gam after realizing that my auntie was an Alpha Gam and had been teaching me my entire life how to live with purpose and I knew I wanted to continue following that path. Alpha Gam to me means inspiration and hope in ways I never could have discovered without it.

Samantha Del Bono

VP Recruitment

Hi, my name is Sam! I am a third year Secondary Education student, with a major in French and a minor in English. A fun fact about me is that I am obsessed with the Titanic; ask me anything about it and I am guaranteed to know the answer! I joined Alpha Gam because I am an extremely shy person, but I knew that this would allow me to come out of my shell and meet so many new friends that I would have for a lifetime! Without the girls I call my sisters, my university career would be a very lonely and boring one; all these girls have truly helped me grow and develop as a person! My favourite Alpha Gam moment has been meeting my Big, Kathleen- we are like two peas in a pod!

Breanne Duguay

VP Campus Relations

Hi, name is Breanne Duguay, and I joined the Delta Kappa chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta in Fall 2014. I am in my third year at the University of Alberta with a major in English and a minor in Drama. In my spare time I enjoy spontaneously breaking into song and dance, acting, writing, reading books, and spending time with my Alpha Gam sisters, friends, and family. I made the decision to join Alpha Gam because it was honestly the place that I felt the most comfortable in during recruitment. During my time as an Alpha Gam, I have had the opportunity to hold the position of Vice President External for the Panhellenic Conference in 2015, as well as several positions within chapter, including Philanthropy Coordinator (2015), and Vice President Member Development (2016). I now serve as Vice President Campus Relations. If I had to pick a favourite line of the Purpose it would be "To possess high ideals and to attain somewhat unto them", because it reminds me to work hard, and to continually set high standards for myself.

Kaylin Lynett

VP Finance

Hey, I'm Kaylin! I am currently in the preprofessional year of the Bilingual Commerce program. I just initiated into Alpha Gam in November of 2016, and it's one of the best decisions I have ever made. Being a full time Campus Saint Jean student, I was nervous at the beginning of the year that I would not have the advantage of the broad networks at Main Campus. Joining Alpha Gam didn't just give me friends at North Campus, it gave me a family away from home. Fun fact? I'm obsessed with politics and cats! My dream is to combine those two passions by hopefully studying Animal Law. But, until then you can find me at the nearest Starbucks watching The Good Wife, and dreaming of having the resilience and poise of Alicia Florrick.

Rhea Sherman

VP Operations

Hi there, my name is Rhea Sherman, and I'm in my second year of Chemistry at Campus Saint-Jean. I currently hold a chapter executive position as VP operations, as well as a Panhellenic executive position, VP programming. Some of my favourite hobbies include figure skating, drinking tea, and knitting. I'm so happy to be a part of Alpha Gam, this is an organization filled with truly incredible women who will accomplish great things in life!

Christina Hanta

Property Coordinator

Hi, my name is Christina. I’m in my third year of an Arts degree with a major in German. I love to travel and wish to visit all the corners of the world! Since joining Alpha Gam in Fall 2015, I’ve gained much more than I anticipated. Our sisters provide infinite support, whether it’s taking the time to come out to performances or be a shoulder for comfort. Spending time with these lovely ladies always makes my week.
