Payne is a junior from Springfield, Illinois majoring in Hospitality Management and Tourism with a minor in Business. After graduation, she hopes to become an event coordinator for hotels and businesses. Through this, she hopes to travel the country planning different events. A fun fact about Payne is her laugh! She has a very loud and contagious laugh, causing people to sometimes laugh at her laugh instead of her jokes. If she could give her freshman self advice, she would say, "No matter how cheesy it sounds, you can achieve your dreams. Don't underestimate yourself. Don't sell yourself short. You can do anything you set your mind to."
We are so lucky to have Payne as our new president! She is already setting the bar high this year by leading our chapter with lots of fun. Thank you for all that you do, Payne!
