As an educator, speaker and mover + shaker, Austin helps college students and organizations realize their potential daily.
As a former over-involved student leader at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, I understand first-hand the passion students have to make an impact on their campuses and ensure their organizations have a lasting legacy.
Originally from Tampa, Florida, I have been fortunate to work for and travel to college campuses around the country to share ways students can maximize their leadership potential. I have advised fraternities, sororities, programming boards, philanthropy groups and student organizations on how to be effective and work through difficulties no matter how big or small. I strongly believes our failures are opportunities for growth and can lead to success.
A brother of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, I believe strongly in the power of the fraternal experience. I am fortunate to not only volunteer for my own organization but also for the Sigma Kappa Sorority, Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women and Kappa Kappa Gamma and North-American Interfraternity Conference.
I also serve as a Lead Facilitator for the Interactive Workshops division of CAMPUSPEAK, Inc., where I am responsible for developing curriculum, training and coaching facilitators and facilitating programming. I joined the roster in January 2014 and I am fortunate to be a member of the CAMPUSPEAK TEAM.
I currently reside in Raleigh, North Carolina where I serve as the Director of Student Involvement at William Peace University. I spend most of my free time with my rescue dog named after a fraternity founder and playing in adult recreational kickball and dodgeball leagues (Yes, these really do exist).
